Grantholder student

To what discount are you entitled?

The deduction only affects subjects on which you register for the first time; therefore, the academic record handling fee, the support fee for learning, the compulsory insurance and contracted services must be paid in full.

Students receiving a general grant convened by the Ministry of Education are not obliged to pay the academic services contracted.

This payment exception also applies to students pending the decision on the awarding of the grant at the time of registration provided that the requirements are met.

Students who enroll in the first year of a university master's degree without having obtained a degree, as indicated in article 18.4 of Royal Decree 822/2021, of 28 September, which establishes the organization of the university educations and of the procedure of assurance of the quality (BOE of 29 of September of 2021), can obtain scholarship as long as they accredit that they are in possession of the referred degree qualification to 31 of December of 2022.

You must bear in mind that:

If a grant is not awarded, students must pay the respective registration amount. If this payment is not made, the provisions of Article 5.2 these regulations shall be applied.

The filing or filing of any appeal against the denial of the scholarship does not paralyze or suspend the obligation to make the financial settlement effective, as it is considered that the requirements for free registration are not met.

If the credits with a distinction are the last of the bachelor's degree or of a degree from the old plan the exemption shall apply to the master's degree in accordance with the following equivalence: if the course type is annual, 2 credits will be discounted from the master's degree, and if the course type is four-monthly, 1 credit will be deducted.
