Entry requirements for Spain
Our entry requirements will vary depending on your level of study, the course you are interested in and your English language proficiency.
We will consider students who hold the Titulo de Bachillerato (LOGSE)/Curso de Orientacion (CoU). As a general guideline, we will consider applicants with a grade of 7.5 overall or above although this will be decided upon by the admissions tutor at the time of application.
Students who have taken GCE A Level examinations and the International Baccalaureate (IB) will also be considered for entrance to undergraduate courses.
Alternatively, the successful completion of one or more years of undergraduate study at a recognised Spanish university may also be considered as acceptable for entry on to our undergraduate degree courses.
Postgraduate taught courses
Applicants who have successfully completed a Título Universitario Oficial de Graduado (Grado) or a five year Título Universitario Oficial de Licenciado / Ingeniero / Arquitecto (Licenciatura) from a recognised Spanish institution will be considered.
As a general guideline, we will consider applicants with a grade in the region of 7/Notable or above, although this will be decided upon by the admissions tutor at the time of application.
Postgraduate research courses
There are a number of possible entry routes to postgraduate research courses at Cardiff University.
We will consider applicants who have successfully completed a master's from a recognised Spanish institution.
In some cases, we will consider applicants who only have a bachelor's degree, although applicants may be required to complete a master's course at Cardiff University prior to embarking upon PhD studies.
A relevant English language qualification is also required — normally a minimum of 6.5 overall in IELTS, however, this may vary from course to course.
In some cases, it may be possible to consider the overall grade in the English language element of the Titulo de Bachiller or evidence of continued use of the English language since High School.
