Once you have been awarded a definitive place at ESCI-UPF, you will receive a welcome email (at the email address you gave on the University Access Portal) with the day and time you have been assigned. You can also check your enrolment day and time here.
Check on the search engine and come on the day and time you have been assigned.
Your username is the passport or ID card number you used when you registered with the Pre-enrolment Office (Spanish ID number including any letters, passport number, NIE or other ID card). The default password is your birthday in ddmmyyyy format.
If you can’t find your data using the search engine, remember that you will only be called to enrol once your place is definitive. Check the enrolment timetable.
You will lose your place. If this happens, you should call Academic Management urgently on 93 295 47 10.
Read the Regulations on the admission of students who have started university studies. Remember that if you have passed more subjects that you want recognised, you will need to bring along a new academic transcript and the corresponding documentation required for recognition.
Only students who have come to enrol will be allowed into the enrolment area. If you bring someone along with you, this person (and no more than one person) will have to wait in a designated waiting area.
If you are in employment or meet the criteria set out in the Regulations for part-time students, you can request to take the part-time option of enrolling for only half of your credits. Follow this procedure to make this request. This request will not be granted automatically. Academic Management will enrol you for all your credits until your request has been granted.
If you have a large-family card, you should bring the original (which must be valid on the date of the start of term) and a photocopy with you when you enrol. If you bring a personal copy, you will have to state how many brothers and sisters are included on the large-family card. If the card has expired, you will have to present a slip from the Catalan Ministry of Wellbeing and Family, or an equivalent body, as proof that you have applied to renew it and, before 31 December, you will have to submit the renewed card stating that it was valid on the date of the start of term, in accordance with current regulations.
If you are entitled to any other discount on the government-regulated component of tuition fees, you should submit the corresponding documentation as proof of your status (original and photocopy).
Important: remember that you will only be able to claim the discount in question if you submit the required documentation for the situation in question.
Your academic transcript and European Diploma Supplement should state that you have acquired at least level B2 of a third language (English, German, French or Italian) within the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).
It serves to certify your proficiency in this foreign language on your academic transcript and European Diploma Supplement.
The Language Proficiency Certifying Exam is designed and organised by the UPF language programme. Candidates may certify their proficiency at level B2 or higher in different skills in different sections of the exam: grammar and vocabulary, written comprehension, listening comprehension, written expression and oral expression.
This exam is mandatory for all new students, unless they can certify that they have level C1 or higher in English.
It will be held on 19 and 20 September for students taking the Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing, and on 21 and 23 September for students taking the Bachelor’s Degree in Bioinformatics.
ESCI-UPF covers the cost of this exam taken before the start of term.
To certify your current level of proficiency in English and, if you so request, to certify English as a third language.
When you enrol, you will have to choose one of the following languages: Germany, Arabic, French, Japanese, Russian or Chinese.
Bear in mind that if you choose French, you will need to take a proficiency exam. Classes will be taught at the average level of enrolled students, roughly A2–B1. If you do not already have this level, you will have to choose a different language. All other languages begin at level A1, so students are not expected to have any prior knowledge or expertise.
The introductory week runs from 8 to 19 September. Attendance is mandatory.
The mandatory PCCL exam (obligatory for all students unless you already have level C1 or higher in English) will be held on 19 and 20 September for students taking the Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing, and on 21 and 23 September for students taking the Bachelor’s Degree in Bioinformatics.
Regular classes start on 20 September.
