General provisions.

  • Students’ continued study in official master’s degree programmes at the University is limited to a period consisting of the academic years necessary to complete the studies, as indicated in the master’s degree programme report.

  • However, if said period has expired, it can be extended for an additional academic year for students who have obtained the majority of credits needed for the master’s degree and can prove that they were unable to give due attention to their studies for duly justified reasons.

  • The extension must be requested during the last academic year of the normal period, via a written request to the Office of the Executive Council of the University, which will issue a decision based on a report of the Centre’s Board of Management.

  • When there are sufficient grounds and experience warrants it, the Centres may propose particular specifications for these standards to the Office of the Executive Council.

  • Students with special educational needs and those who are studying on a part-time basis who are unable to comply with these provisions must consider their situation every year before completing the enrolment process in order to adapt it to their ability to commit to the study programme.

  • Students enrolled in master’s degree programmes not adapted to the European Higher Education Area or in university-accredited qualifications will be subject to the requirements for continued study applicable to those programmes of study.

According to the Regulation adapted to RD 861/2010 of 17 June 2011, there is a procedure for credit recognition and transfer.
