Entrance exams and criteria

 
 

We are looking for outstanding students from all over the world, who are curious, have an interdisciplinary mentality and are inspired to improve society – people whose talent and experience can drive our university forward.

How do we measure academic performance?

1. English: For bilingual degrees, the University requests accreditation of the level of English. The required level is defined together with the description of the admission tests of each School.

2. Spanish: To enter any of the official degrees at the University, knowledge of the Spanish Language is necessary. For this reason, students must prove their level of Spanish in case of:

  • who do not have Spanish as their mother tongue.

  • who have completed studies equivalent to the Baccalaureate, which give access to university studies, in a language other than Spanish.

These students will be able to certify their level of Spanish through the following exams:


Students who apply for admission and do not have the minimum established competencies can enroll if they wish, in the ILCE summer courses. In this way, they will achieve the language skills required for the start of the course.

Content of the examinations

Examples of the aptitude and skills tests:

Example examination

Apply to the University of Navarra through the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program

Apply to the University of Navarra via the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program (DP)

Students who have taken the IB Diploma Program can choose to apply to the University of Navarra via the ordinary route or via the IB Route (provided they meet the minimum admission requirements for their chosen degree program). They must indicate on their application (miportal.unav.edu) that they are applying through the IB Route and attach a certificate of their specific IB Program grades.

  • The IB Route allows students to enter the University of Navarra without taking the official university entrance examination. Instead, they must request the access credential issued by the UNED.

  • In order to gain access via this route, the student’s predicted grades after having completed the first year of the IB Diploma must meet the minimum grade required for each degree program as stipulated by each School (see grades below).

If the student does not reach the required score at the end of the IB Diploma and as a result is not admitted to the requested degree, he may write an instance through the miUNAV Portal in Help / Contact, requesting to reconsider his admission by means of admission tests.

  • Those whose expected qualifications meet the requirements will be summoned to an interview at the chosen Scho. The Faculty of Economics will conduct this interview in person at the Pamplona Campus on the days of the admission tests to the applicants who study in an academic center based in Spain.

  • Those applicants studying outside Spain must arrange an interview with the delegate of the University in their country.

  • In the case of passing the interview, the IB student will obtain conditional admission on the effective achievement of the required final grades upon completion of the IB Program. The deadline to deliver the transcripts will be July 10th.
