ECTS recognition is understood as the acceptance of credits which, having been obtained from accredited university courses at UC3M or another university, can be applied towards earning an official degree.

The University now also accepts, depending the Program,  the recognition of prior learning, discounting up to 15% of the course load in an Official Master’s Degree, for UC3M-accredited Masters, or non-accredited course work, and professional experience.
