Complete your profile with the further training

UC3M gives you the opportunity to study a further training, 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 further training?

By further training you can take, in addition to those of your curriculum, courses in any other college degree that is your interest. Thanks to the further training:

  • 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 DS if you get 36 credits.

You can't enroll Further training courses if you have passed your Bachelor Thesis.


What courses can you take?

You can choose any course of the chosen degree, except for basic core if it’s the same branch of yours. 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.



If you have been admitted this academic year:

  • Having a good note access.
  • All credits have enrolled the first year.

If you are already a student at the UC3M:
