What is it? Who can apply?

The Early Admission procedure is a way to access official degree studies, typical of Universidad Carlos III, for International Students.

Through Early Admission you will be able to access, as long as you have a good grade, official Spanish studies, without having to take an entrance exam.

A commission appointed by the Rector will resolve the Admission. The average grade of the academic record and the grades in the subjects considered to be related to the contents of the degree requested will be assessed.

To whom is directed

  • To students from educational systems other than Spanish.
  • Who have or are in position to obtain studies equivalent to the Spanish Baccalaureate.
  • With a good academic record, 90% of the admission decision will be based on your grades and 10% based on other duly accredited academic merits.
  • Proof of level B2 in the language in which the degree is taught.
  • Finally, if you have studied at the International Baccalaureate (IB), European Baccalaureate (EB) in educational systems of European Union countries, and countries with reciprocal agreements (Switzerland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Andorra, China and the United Kingdom), the whole family must reside abroad.

Which Bachelor Degrees can I apply for?

You can apply for admission to any of our Degrees, except UC3M Open Degrees, 4U Alliance Degrees and Dual Degrees.

The number of places for this type of access is 8% of our total offer.


If you want to opt for 100% of the available places or for one of the degrees excluded from this procedure, you can apply for your place in the month of June through the General Pre-Registration procedure. Consult here the information for European Union Students and for non-EU Students.
