IMPORTANT: NEW LEGAL REQUIREMENTS IN FORCE

On July 19, 2023, Royal Decree 576/2023, (amending Royal Decree 99/2011) which regulates doctoral studies, came into force. As a result, from the 2023/2024 academic year, the following requirements for access to doctoral studies have been stablished:

Article 6. Legal requirements for access to doctorate studies

In general, to access an official doctoral program, it will be necessary to hold an official Spanish Bachelor's degree, or equivalent, and a Master's degree, or equivalent, provided these two courses comprise at least 300 ECTS credits altogether. Likewise, applicants in any of the following situations may also be considered for admission:

  1. Holders of official Spanish university degrees (graduates from bachelor degrees, engineering or architecture) or equivalent Spanish degrees comprising, at least, 300 ECTS credits in the set of these teachings and accredit a level 3 of the Spanish Qualifications Framework for Higher Education.
  2. Holders of degrees obtained issued at the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) countries, with no need of homologation, if they accredit level 7 of the European Qualifications Framework and provided they entitle access to doctoral studies in the country of issue. In any case, admission under these circumstances shall not imply neither their homologation, nor their recognition for purposes different from access to doctoral studies.
  3. Holders of degrees obtained outside the EHEA countries, with no need for homologation. Verification by the issuant university that they accredit a level of training which is equivalent to Spanish university Master's degrees and they qualify for access to doctoral studies in the country of issue. In any case, this admission will not imply neither their homologation nor their recognition for purposes other than access to doctoral studies.
  4. Holders of another Doctorate degree.
  5. Likewise, university graduates who have received a positive evaluation during at least two years in specialized health training programs for achieving the official degree in one of the specialties in Health Sciences at the Spanish public health system, may also be considered for admission.
  6. In addition, graduates from Bachelor degrees, Architecture or Engineering studies holding the Diploma of Advanced Studies (under Royal Decree 778/1998), or the so-called Research Sufficiency (under Royal Decree 185/1985, of January 23), may be considered for admission.
