First year students

The admission process for 1st year students involves these steps:

  1. Application
  2. Selection
  3. Pre-admission
  4. Admission and Enrollment
  5. Administrative rules


The application for admission begins through the following link. Once it has been completed, you will receive an e mail with your personal user name and password giving you access to your future student portal.


The selection process consists of the evaluation of the candidate’s personal and academic records, admission tests and an interview.

The documentation must be uploaded into the application form in order to continue to the admission tests.

  1. 1. During the admission process you must provide the following documents:
    • Valid passport
    • Photo (passport-type)
    • Academic transcripts of the studies you have carried out to date, which allow you access to the Spanish University system. In the case of secondary school students, the grades for the last two completed academic years
    • Motivation letter
    • Curriculum Vitae (optional)
    • Language certificates (obligatory only for some IBP programs)
    • Grade equivalence document: needs to be submitted by those students who have completed a pre-university system other than Spanish and who wish to apply for a scholarship or the Degree in Dentistry. This document can be issued by the agency Homologation Student Services. Transfer students are not eligible for a scholarship and therefore, do not need to submit this document.

    The documentation must be uploaded into the application form in order to continue to the admission tests.

    If you opt for one of the International Degrees consult the language requirements for each program through this link.

    Grades: We do not require a minimum score or grade, since these are considered alongside your academic and personal records. For this reason, we recommend that all additional documentation required be prepared very carefully.

  2. 2. Admission tests: general competency and language, done online through the Future Student Portal
  3. 3. Interview: done through Teams with a university professor

Evaluation of the candidate:

  • 60% academic records
  • 40% evaluation of personal and academic profile during the interview (includes language competence)


If you have passed the selection process, you will be notified by email of your pre-admission. This notification will indicate how to formalize the pre-admission and the deadline.

The pre-admission process is formalized by making the payment of the reservation fee of €695 and the Hospitality Services fee of €500 by credit card or bank transfer. If you choose to pay by transfer, send us a proof of payment to

Payment of the pre-admission fee guarantees your place, provided that the payment is made by the deadline indicated. The amount paid as the pre-admission fee does not form part of the academic fees and is non-refundable.

Your definitive admission is subject to the delivery of documentation that gives legal access to a Spanish university. (Recognition of the High School Diploma, Academic Report, etc.)


Once the pre-admission payment is made, the candidate will be sent an email with instructions about how to formalize the enrollment.

Formalization of enrollment involves three steps:

  • Payment of the enrollment fees (€1295 for single degrees and €1795 for double degrees) within the deadline indicated
  • Completion of the enrollment form
  • Signing of the enrollment documents

Remember: definitive enrollment will be granted when the student has provided the documentation that gives legal access to a Spanish university. Recognition of the High School Diploma, Academic Report, etc.


International students wishing to study Medicine can find out about this process through the following link (in Spanish only).

Steps for selecting interview dates:

  1. 1. Enter your intranet of future student
  2. 2. Choose a date and a day to do the interview
  3. 3. You can do the interview online (Teams) or in person, as you prefer.
  4. 4. When you have chosen a date and time to do the interview you will receive an e-mail with the instructions
  5. 5. Do not forget which day you have to do the interview, (Spanish time) and before the day of the interview upload all the documentation we ask you for.

The admission interview is an exceptional occasion for us to get to know the candidates better and for you to get to know the CEU San Pablo University better. On the day of the interview, take advantage of the opportunity and ask the professor anything you want: How are the exams?; How many students are there in class?; What subjects are studied in the first year?

The professor will assess the reasons that lead you to study the chosen degree, your interests beyond the academic, as well as your language skills.

The objective of the admission test is to ensure your academic success at our University.

If after the test you forgot to ask something, call the International Admissions Service (+34915140404) or write to, we will be happy to help you!
