FAQs

CEU is the largest, not-for-profit educational institution in Spain, and the only one operating four different universities: CEU Madrid, CEU Barcelona, CEU Valencia, and CEU Sevilla.


All of them share the same values and quality standards, but operate independently.

Our four universities offer a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Although the majority of courses are offered in Spanish, there is a vast selection of degrees which are taught either in a bilingual mode (Spanish/English), or entirely in English.


When browsing our academic offer, make sure that the teaching language corresponds to your expectations: ESP, ENG or ESP/ENG!

Each CEU university operates independently, which means that the admission process may start in different dates depending on the centre.


In general terms, the process opens in November (undergraduate degrees) and February (postgraduate degrees), so make sure to keep this date in mind if you want to submit your application - and remember that applications are not shared by our four universities, you will need to send your application separately to each one in case you are interested in more than one CEU centre.

For undergraduate degrees, there is only one intake starting in September every year, while most postgraduate degrees start in November/December. Please refer to the program's website for specific information.

Other than the general academic documentation and a language test to prove your competencies in Spanish or English (when applicable), there is no specific access exam to any university of our group - of course each candidate will need to pass an admission process to make sure he/she is eligible!


For certain degrees related to health studies (Medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary Medicine...), there might be special access conditions and even an exam. Please refer to the following links to get detailed information:
