Enrolment and full-time/part-time students
Full-time status, in general, entails 60 credits per academic year. However, you can request part-time status for each academic year, complying with the specific structure of subjects and courses that are offered for this purpose. To be eligible for part-time status, you must demonstrate legitimate reasons, such as:
- regular, accredited work activity
- participation in a high-level sport
- special educational needs
- family responsibilities
- student representation duties
Full-time students: you must take a minimum of 36 credits and a maximum of 72.
- You must include all pending subjects in the enrolment.
- The final year project is not included in these calculations.
- You may take fewer than 36 credits if you need a lower number of credit hours to finish your degree.
- You may request to exceed the limit of credits if you need a higher number of credit hours to finish your degree.
- If for two consecutive years you do not exceed more than 36 credits you cannot take more than 36 credits, with the exception of force majeure.
Part-time students: you must take a minimum of 24 credits and a maximum of 36.
- In assisted enrolment, a document certifying enrolment will be issued. In self-enrolment, the student automatically validates the data.

- Enrolment is not final until all fees are paid, except in cases of exemption.

If cancellation due to force majeure is requested before 31 December, students can ask for a refund of the tuition fees.
