The requirements are those established in article 16.1 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of October 29, which establishes the organization of official university education: "In order to access official Master's degree courses, it will be necessary to hold an official Spanish university degree or another issued by a higher education institution belonging to another member state of the European Higher Education Area that entitles access to Master's degree courses in that country".
Likewise, graduates from educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may be admitted without the need for the homologation of their degrees, after verification by the University that they accredit a level of education equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees, and that they are authorized in the country issuing the degree to enroll in postgraduate studies. Access by this route will not imply, in any case, the homologation of the previous degree held by the interested party, nor its recognition for purposes other than that of taking the Master's degree.
Specific requirements for access to the Master's Degree
The preferred entrance qualification is that of a graduate in Physics. If there is sufficient accredited training in physics studies, students with a degree in Mathematics, Chemistry, Engineering or related areas will also be considered for admission. For graduates in scientific/technical areas prior to RD 1393/2007, a continuous updating of physics knowledge may be required.
Specific requirements for courses
Some courses refer to bibliography and articles written in English, so that comprehensive skills in this language is a must. Moreover, skills in programming languages are needed in some courses. Information in this regard can be found in the "Requirements and Recommendations" section of each syllabus.
