Official Postgraduate Studies
The University courses leading to obtaining official degrees are adapted to the European Higher Education Area and are taught at three levels: Undergraduate, Master’s and Doctorate (the latter two are considered Postgraduate degrees).
They are official degree programs whose purpose is the acquisition of advanced training oriented to academic / professional specialization or to initiate the student in research.
How long do they take?
They range from 60 to 120 ECTS credits (between one and two full academic years)
Which orientations do Master’s programs offer?
Official Master’s programmes can have any of the following three orientations:
Most of our Master’s degrees involve collaboration with external institutions or companies, and include internships which help students specialise in the orientation that best fits their wants and needs.
How much do they cost?
The regional government of Madrid sets the price of Master’s degrees by the beginning of each academic year.
What degree will I earn?
Completing these programmes entitles the student to an official Master’s Degree, valid throughout Europe.
How do they relate to Doctoral Degrees?
They are considered the Training Period for the Doctorate and therefore students are allowed to start the Research Period of a Doctoral Programme, which they then continue by working on their Doctoral Thesis.
Their aim is to train students in research techniques. The Doctoral Degree is the highest possible academic degree, and involves the authorship of a work of original research, known as the Doctoral Dissertation.
What is the difference between the various Doctoral plans?
The UAH currently offers 3 Doctoral plans, which take their names from the year in which they were regulated by royal decree.
The UAH has adapted most of its Doctoral plans to the European Higher Education Area. You can find detailed information on the different plans offered in:
