New UC3M Bachelor's degrees

Nuevos grados en la UC3M

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (UC3M) will be offering a total of 41 bachelor degree programs for academic year 2016-2017, more than half of which will be taught in English.  

A new feature for the upcoming academic year will be two new UC3M open degree programs: in Social Sciences and Humanities and in Engineering.  These degrees offer the possibility of undertaking university studies without immediately having to declare a major. With this option a student can choose different subjects from any degree program in these Schools during the first two years and upon finishing the second year decide which degree to finally pursue.  In the major chosen, there will be recognition for subjects already studied in the open double degree.

At the same time, during this process the students will have a tutor at their disposal to provide support and orientation in matters relating to the degree program in which they eventually enroll.  

These are not the only new features for academic year 2016/2017. A new double degree in International Studies and Economics in English and two new double degree bilingual programs in Law and Business Administration and Management and Law and Economics are going to be offered. Furthermore, the current degree of Tourism will be taught on the Getafe campus.  

UC3M in the rankings

Thirteen of UC3M degree programs (two more than last year) are in the top positions in the 50 degree programs ranking published by El Mundo newspaper, which features the 50 degrees most requested by students and the top five universities where these programs are taught.  Regarding output, UC3M holds third place in Spain according to the U- Ranking 2016, developed by the Fundación BBVA and the Instituto Valenciano de Investigaciones Económicas (Valencia Institute of Economic Research).

The University also appears in international rankings of reference such as the QS, in which it is rated as one of the best 50 universities in the world under 50 years old, and it is listed in the Times Higher Education (THE) 150 under 50, which includes the 150 top universities in the world under 50 years old. 

UC3M student mobility and employment

 UC3M is one of the first universities in Spain and in Europe in the proportion of its undergraduate students participating in the Erasmus program.  Its students carry out exchange programs in more than 400 universities throughout 54 countries with which the University has agreements; some of these institions rank as the best universities world-wide according to the Shanghai Ranking. 

The University also has a high employability rate among its graduates. A total of 91.4% of its graduates have found work within a year after finishing their studies in a profession related to their major.
