Tuition fees for Bachelor's Degree Studies

How to calculate the tuition free

To calculate the amount of tuition you must multiply the total number of credits you are going to register for by the price of each credit. In general, each course has a total of 60 credits.

As a guideline, the table also shows the cost of registering for a full course of 60 credits. 

These prices are applicable to students of Spanish nationality or of any member state of the European Union, as well as to people with a valid Residence Permit in Spain. If you are a national of a non-EU country, you should consut this webpage.

Exenciones y deducciones

If you are in one of the following situations, you are entitled to exemption from all or part of the fees, except those corresponding to school insurance, and in some cases, those of the secretarial services. To do so, you must indicate this on the enrolment form and provide the corresponding documentation.

  • Disability exemption (minimum 33%)

Students with a Bachelor's degree of disability equal to or greater than 33% are entitled to a total exemption from public fees for studies leading to a university degree.

Documents to be provided: certificate or card accrediting the Bachelor's degree of disability issued by the corresponding Autonomous Community.

  • Large family

You will be entitled to the price reduction as long as your Large Family certificate is valid, or you have applied for renewal, on the day the course starts.

  • General Large Family: 50% reduction in academic and administrative fees.
  • Special Large Family: Exemption from administrative and academic fees.

  • Medal in accredited national or international academic olympiads.

In these cases, you must provide the corresponding certificate.

  • Honours in a Bachelor's Degree course
