The criteria for the admission of students are three: academic training, average grade of the file and dedication. These criteria will be used to rank new applications until the quota established each year by the coordinating committee of the Master's degree is covered.
For this reason, it is essential to indicate the average grade of the student's academic record when pre-registering.
As far as training is concerned, graduates in computer science will be preferenced.
Graduates from related careers, such as Telecommunications, Physics, Maths, etc., will also be admitted, although in this case the average grade of the file required will be higher than for computer science graduates. Knowledge of computers acquired outside the degree and in professional practice will also be valued.
In exceptional cases graduates from other careers will be admitted, who have a brilliant academic record and demonstrate sufficient knowledge of mathematics and computer science to study this master's degree.
Those interested in studying the Master's degree must have a sufficient reading level in English to understand technical content in that language.
According to the rules of permanence of the UNED's MsC, approved by agreement of the Governing Council of June 24th 2008, students of Masters with a teaching load of 60 ECTS credits (like this one) will have a period of permanence of four years, which must be understood as consecutive.
Requirements for access to the doctorate
This is a research-oriented master's degree that qualifies students for carrying out a PhD, provided that they certify 300 ECTS credits in their higher studies. However, admission to a doctoral program ultimately depends on the corresponding Doctoral Coordination Commission and not on that of this master's degree.
