  • Payment in bank: At the end of enrollment, a payment document is generated with which you can go to any office of Santander Bank to pay the enrollment fee.
  • Payment by direct debit: You can enter a number of spanish bank account, in which the University will send the corresponding receipt. You only need your IBAN code, the BIC code is not necesary.

- Payment in four installments: In each period (august, october, january and march) the 25% of the enrollment fee will be charged in your bank account. If you choose this option, it's necessary to choose the direct debit option.

For those students with extra-community nationality and residence permit, they must submit a copy of the permit as soon as possible so that the fees of european students will be applied. For this, you can call 916246000 or show up in the registration room of each center.

Important notice to students with non-European nationality and with a residence permit in Spain: In order to apply the prices for European students, to which you are entitled to have residence in Spain, you must send us a copy of the permit, following the instructions that we have sent you by email. If you have already sent it, and the prices for non-EU students appear in your registration, do not worry. Finalize the registration, and your Student Office will make the price change before sending the charge to your bank.
