Here's usefull information to gain admission to EINA's masters, prograduate's diplomas or courses.
How to apply for a place
To gain admission to EINA proprietary master's and postgraduate courses, you must first pass a selection process. The aim of this process is to ensure that the student has the necessary knowledge to be able to follow and make the most of the course.
The documentation you will need to present to apply for a place is as follows:
- University degree
- Academic certificate
- Academic and professional CV
- Book or dossier that contains a selection of work produced by the student and related to the academic sphere of the postgraduate course
- Passport photo for the card
You must ensure that you have the required qualifications before registering on the course. You can consult this in the following section: “2. Qualifications requirements and qualification obtained”. If you do not have the required qualification (in the case of the Postgraduate Diploma or a Specialisation Course), you can complete the forms that you will find below.
If you do not have the required university qualification, in the case of the Postgraduate Diploma or a Specialisation Course, you can complete and attach the following Declaration of non-availability of qualification. This means that you will be opting for a Certificate of Attendance. In the case of a Master’s, if it is being processed, you can attach the Declaration of non-availability of qualification for the registration, but you will have to submit it to formalise enrolment. Not having the required qualification disqualifies you from studying on the course (you can consider the possibility of studying on the corresponding Postgraduate Diploma course).
Postgraduate courses can be divided, depending on the credits, into three categories: master's, postgraduate diplomas and specialisation courses.
To gain admission to a Master's Course, it is essential, at the time of enrolment, to hold a university Degree or equivalent (EHEA university Degree of a minimum of 180 ECTS credits; an undergraduate Degree, diploma or engineering Degree prior to the implementation of the EHEA of a minimum of 3 academic years).
To gain admission to a Postgraduate Diploma and obtain the corresponding qualification, it is an essential requirement, at the time of enrolment, to hold a bachelor Degree or equivalent (i.e.: a university Degree equivalent to an EHEA undergraduate qualification -minimum 180 ECTS credits-, or a bachelor, associate or engineering Degree awarded prior to the implementation of the EHEA -minimum 3 academic years-). Coordinators might admit students without a bachelor Degree, if they are considered to have enough level to follow the course. Once the course has been passed, the student will be able to obtain a certificate signed by the Rector of the UAB. This option only applies to Postgraduate Diploma, not to Master.
To gain admission to a Specialisation Course no prior qualification is required. In each case, a Certificate of Attendance may be awarded.
In the case of students with foreign diplomas, please read the requirements on the UAB website.

Application period is open for the entire course. It ends one month prior to the start of the course or until all the places are filled.
When selecting a student for a postgraduate course, the coordinator will assess the academic background, the quality of the work (book), professional experience and the reasons stated. You must also have the necessary admission qualification.
