The minimum grade increases in 64 percent of the UC3M’s degree courses

All the places offered for the 2019/20 academic year have been filled


The minimum grades at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) have risen in 64 percent of its degree courses compared to the previous year. The University has the highest minimum grade of all the institutions in Madrid in 29 of its courses (two more than last year), with all of the places on degree courses which were on offer in the June applications being filled. The average admission grade in June 2019 was 11.621. These figures confirm that the UC3M continues to attract the best students.

In relation to the demand for university courses, for every 100 places offered, 163 applications were received. In addition, the UC3M’s attractiveness to students from other autonomous communities and other countries is evident from the fact that more than 45 percent of the students admitted come from outside Madrid.

The courses with the highest minimum grade in the Faculty of Social and Legal Sciences were the Double Degree in International Studies-Law (13.525) and in International Studies and Business Administration (13.339). In the Faculty of Humanities, Communications and Documentation, they were the Double Degree in Journalism and Audiovisual Communications (11.965) and the Open Degree in Social Sciences and Humanities (11.829). In the Higher Polytechnic School, they were the new Degree in Physical Engineering (12.975) and the Degree in Biomedical Engineering (12.874).

The three new courses that are offered this year, the Degree in Physical Engineering (English), the Degree in Applied Mathematics and Computing (English) and the Degree in Cultural Studies (bilingual), have met with a good response.
