Reserving your place.

If you are admitted and choose to study at UC3M, a 300€ non.refundable down payment is required to reserve your place. This amount will be discounted of the total cost of your enrollment. The deadline to submit your down payment and reserve your place is 15 days from the notification of admission. Credit cards may be used to submit the payment.

The down payment is not defundable and will not be applied to tuition for future academic years if you choose to defer your enrollment. Specifically, not visa or recognition of studies doesn't entitle to a refund of reservation.



Final course enrollment takes place when you arrive at the university. We will inform you of the neccesary steps to take by e.mail. If you come from a non-spanish-speaking country, you will automatically be guaranteed a place in a english group, if there are any in your degree.
