Access to master's degrees

Access to master's degrees

The University of Oviedo offers a complete range of postgraduate studies, including university master's degrees and UB-specific degrees. To access these studies, it is necessary to hold a university degree and even an official master's degree in the case of the doctorate. The entire offer is coordinated by the International Postgraduate Centre.

Students wishing to study a university master's degree must hold an official Spanish university degree or another degree 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.

In the case of its own degrees, the Asturian academic institution offers master's, specialist and expert programmes, with a clear professional orientation in all branches of knowledge. In order to take a master's degree, specialist or expert course, it is a prerequisite to hold an official university degree. Exceptionally, professionals directly related to the speciality of the course who do not have a degree may be admitted, as long as they can provide documentary proof of their professionalism and meet the legal requirements to study at the University.

Pre-registration will involve completing the self-service form at the following online address: https://sies.uniovi.es/preweb/web/preinscripcion/acceso/documento.faces.

The average grade equivalent for courses taken at foreign universities will be calculated based on the procedure set out in Resolution (21 March 2016) of the General Directorate for University Policy. For this purpose, applicants should follow the steps described on the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training website, where all the information for this procedure can be found:http://www.educacionyfp.gob.es/servicios-al-ciudadano/catalogo/general/20/203615/ficha.html

Reservation of places

Admitted students will have to formalize their reservation on-line by paying an advanced fee, substracted from the final price of the registration fees that will not, under any circumstance, be refunded or moved to other academic courses. In case the candidate does not pay the fee within the established period, they will lose their place in the Master's Degree.

On-line reservation of places

Once accepted onto a course, applicants need to reserve their place by making an enrolment down-payment of three hundred euros; this needs to be done within a specific deadline. Reservations are made online at https://sies.uniovi.es/preweb/web/preinscripcion/acceso/documento.faces

This reservation can be transferred if, at the end of the enrolment process, there are available places on the master's degree course. In addition, the amount paid will be refunded if the master's degree course does not go ahead due to reasons that are not attributable to the applicant, or if a student has not completed the course that led to the master's degree. The down-payment cannot be transferred to other courses that have no available places.

If payment is not made within the established period of time, applicants will lose their place on the master's degree course. At the end of the initial period for reserving places, lists will be published for any master's courses that have vacancies, with the new list of accepted candidates, in accordance with the order on the waiting list that was initially published, and the corresponding deadline for reserving places. These lists will be published on the University of Oviedo website (http://www.uniovi.es/estudios/masteres) and also on the website of each centre responsible for the course.


Enrollment will be formalized through the on-line application created for this purpose and available at the website of International Graduate Center. When the enrollment process is finished, each student will be able to select the subjects they want to enroll in, depending on whether it will be in a full-time or part-time dedication scheme. During this process, students may also request that other studies or professional activities may be recognized. To do so, they will have to select the box titled "Solicita reconocimiento de créditos".

The request of recognition of credits will have to be presented, as well, in one of the University Registries during the enrollment period (from 4 August to 7 September 2021).

Once the enrollment process is finished, students will have to print their proof of enrollment, sign it and send it to the International Graduate Center alongside the following documents if applicable:

  • Students who have paid the enrollment fees must include the proof of payment given by their banks.
  • Students who have requested grants that cover the enrollment fees must include a receipt to prove they have requested said grant.
  • Students who do not have to pay the fees or have a discount on them must include a copy of the certification that proves said rights.

Enrollment will begin on the dates indicated for this purpose and is done through the computer application at the following online address


At that time, any students who have been accepted without having completed the pre-requisite course for being accepted on to the master's course will need to provide documentary proof that they have completed it. Students who do not formalise their enrolment within the established deadlines will be deemed to have given up their place.

Students who have been on courses through a national or international mobility programme during academic year 2019-2020 and are waiting for their grades from the host universities may enrol for the academic year 2020-2021. They can do this either conditionally within the enrolment period if they do not yet have the documents accrediting the evaluation results, or definitively later on when the documents accrediting the evaluation results become available.

Issue of an invoice for enrolment in the name of the student and paid by the student: 

Invoices are issued at the request of the recipient of the academic service as these are academic services exempt from VAT (art. 20 of Law 37/92, 28 December), and payment will not be made by means of a letter of payment but by the invoice. In order to issue an invoice, the due date established for enrolment will be taken into account. This is the concept to be invoiced and it must be made before the 16th day of the month following the month in which the operations have been carried out. It should be noted that Article 106.4 of the General Tax Law, on means and assessment of evidence, states that, ‘deductible expenses and deductions made, when they arise from transactions carried out by entrepreneurs or professionals, must be justified, as a matter of priority, by means of the invoice issued by the entrepreneur or professional who carried out the corresponding transaction or by means of the substitute document issued when the transaction was carried out, which in both cases meet the requirements set out in the tax regulations' . That is to say, even when the recipient is either an entrepreneur or a tradesperson, the possibility of a "replacement document " is allowed; even truer when the recipient is not an entrepreneur nor a tradesperson. 

Issue of invoice for enrolment in the name of the student and paid by a third party company or entity: 

The student will carry out the enrolment but will not proceed with the payment of the enrolment fee. Instead, the student  will communicate the request for the issuing of an invoice to a third party. The concept of the invoice issued in this way must state that the invoice is issued for the purpose of payment of the student's enrolment fee. The issuing of an invoice to a third party requires the company or entity to fill in the University's third party creditors registration document (University of Oviedo Data Bank details form) and to attach a copy of their Tax Identification Code (CIF).
