To be admitted on a master’s degree, you must have a university diploma that allows you to access postgraduate studies in the country in which it was awarded. The MMS Master students come from technical studies, such as Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Engineering, and Physics Bachelor of Science. Typical degrees: Mechanical, Aeronautics, Civil, Architecture, etc.
The application involves the following steps:
The pre-registration is the first mandatory step to apply for the MMS master.
It must be performed on-line, through the website of UdG’s Masters (see Section: “Pre-enrollment”). In this website, the student has to select the desired master to apply and load the different requested documents (some of them, must be legalized). In cases where it is requested the “Grades equivalence document for university studies completed in foreign centres”, it is important to know which grade type was applied in your origin university. They can be identified in this document.
For the pre-registration, these documents must be loaded only as a pdf file type. In the case of being accepted, the original documents must be shown once you are in Girona.
For each new academic course, the pre-registration application is open starting around January-February until the first month of teaching classes (October).
The pre-registration has an administrative tax. It is important to pay it, so the administrative staff will start reviewing the documentation of your pre-registration. Otherwise, your pre-registration will be on hold.
A succeed pre-registration allows the following:
- To be accepted in the master MMS.
- Reservation of a place for the next new course (the master MMS is limited to 25 students by year). The deadline for the pre-registration is around mid-September. However, if you are not an European citizen, after the pre-registration you will need the student Visa, and it takes some administrative time (depending on the Embassy, it may need 2 months of management).
- If needed, you will obtain an invitation letter for requesting the student Visa.
Each pre-registered student will receive an email notification with a link to view his Admission Decision. The resolutions of each pre-registration period are performed at the corresponding administrative deadlines defined by the Universitat de Girona (UdG).
3. Selection of subjects
Once you are Accepted in master MMS, the next step is to schedule a meeting with the Coordinator of the master MMS to define which subjects would be done (including Mandatory and Optional subjects).
The English level requested in MMS is B1. If you do not have an official certificate, an English meeting with the coordinator will be requested to assess a suitable level for performing the master MMS.
Next, accepted students will have to register to the corresponding pre-selected subjects. This step is fully done on-line, using the username and the password notified by the UdG.
The enrolment period starts around July and finishes at the end of October.
Failing to register within the prescribed administrative periods results in the loss of the right to enrol in the master.
5. Original documents and student card
For those students that did their university degree outside the Universitat de Girona (UdG), must show the original documents loaded in the pre-registration to the Academic Secretariat once they arrive at Girona. In addition, they can ask for an student card of the Universitat de Girona.
