Additional Education (Minors)

Complete your profile with the Additional Education (Minors)

UC3M gives you the opportunity to study an Additional Education, that is, additional studies to your degree that will allow you to complete your curriculum. It is equivalent to minor offered by many Anglo-Saxon universities.

 

What is Additional Education (minors)?

By Additional Education you can take, in addition to those of your curriculum, courses in any other degree that is your interest. With this Additional Information:

  • You'll get a better preparation to study a postgraduate.
  • You’ll have a multidisciplinary profile, which will improve your curriculum and will be useful when entering the job market.
  • You’ll develop your interests in other areas without giving up your main studies.

Complementary courses that you complete will appear on your transcript. Also, a mention will appear in your Diploma Supplement if you get 36 credits.

You can't enroll Additional Education courses if you have passed your Bachelor Thesis.

 

What courses can you take?

You can choose any course of the chosen degree (except Habilities, Internships, Bachelor Thesis...). You can take a maximum of 12 credits each semester. The courses must have available seats and not be similar to the ones in your studies plan.
