University Access Courses (CAD)

Many adults lack the immediate preparation required to pass university entrance examinations. UNED´s commitment has been and continues to be to facilitate the access to higher education of this large group of adults (more than 23,000 in the last academic term) through an orientation and induction course. The course, with special support from all the Associated Centers, is geared to providing interested persons basic university entrance training and a detailed introduction to university studies based on UNED´s specific methodology.

These courses last one academic year and are conducted prior to the university admissions examinations for those over the age of 25 and over the age of 45, respectively.
