What is the difference between an official university master’s degree and a university-specific master’s degree?

The (official) university master’s degrees are postgraduate programmes that are valid throughout Spain and in the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and which have been drawn up and approved according to Spanish government legislation and that of the autonomous communities through a process that is recognised in the framework of EHEA regulations and agreements. In order to be admitted, students must have an official university qualification or degree under the old system, or the equivalent, or be a graduate of the new higher education system.

A master’s degree, as a university-specific degree, involves a course of study that has been subjected to an internal regulatory process, more flexible and diversified, at a certain university. This degree is certified by the university, but the programme is not officially recognised by the EHEA, although this in no way means it is less prestigious or of lesser quality.

 

What university master’s degrees qualify graduates to work in degree-dependent professions?

Some university master’s degrees qualify graduates to work in specific professions that have specific regulations. These degrees have minimum obligatory content which must be developed in the corresponding syllabi. This guarantees that students obtain the skills and knowledge that are necessary and that are required to carry out and practice each of the professions.

 

How long do university master's degree programmes last?

University master’s degree programmes involve between 60 and 120 ECTS credits. This means that full-time students need between one and two academic years depending on the university master's degree in question to complete the degree.

 

What is an inter-university master’s degree?

These are university master’s degrees taught between two or more universities in Catalonia, Spain or other countries, based on a single syllabus, in which each of the participating universities teaches a number of subjects. The coordinating university will be the institution responsible for processing and managing student enrolment and academic transcripts. Admission requirements will be the same for all students, and mobility is obligatory.

 

What are Erasmus Mundus master’s degrees?

Their aim is to improve the quality of higher education in Europe by promoting dialogue and understanding among individuals and cultures through cooperation with other countries.

A minimum of three higher education institutions in European Union countries must participate in an Erasmus Mundus university master's degree.
