    This cutting-edge campus, on a 13,000 square meter plot, has a capacity of 3,000 people and is equipped with the latest technology applied to the transmission of ideas and knowledge, in an exceptional location:

    • The nerve center of the North Madrid Business Park, one of the most strategically important business areas in Spain, and undoubtedly a major source of employment in the near future.
    • It has excellent road links to the center of Madrid (just a 15 minute drive from Plaza de Castilla) and to Barajas Airport (13 minutes way), and plenty of parking space.
    • Directly connections to public transport services (Madrid – Plaza Castilla, Alcobendas and San Sebastián de los Reyes)

    The course also has access to the infrastructure of the other campuses of Universidad Europea de Madrid, which are described below.

    Villaviciosa de Odón Campus

    To ensure that people with disabilities are able to access the facilities, amenities and services, regardless of the nature of their disability, improvements have been carried out to progressively remove all architectural and communication barriers.

    MATERIAL RESOURCES AND SERVICES

    THE DULCE CHACÓN LIBRARY: The library of the Universidad Europea de Madrid is a learning resource center, the mission of which is to provide all members of the university community with a high quality service that meets their training, information and documentation needs in the undertaking of their activities. It currently has 80,000 volumes in its bibliographic collection, a periodical collection with 1,100 titles, an audiovisual collection with 3,400 videos and DVDs, 780 reading stations and a digital library that covers the different areas of knowledge. Furthermore, the Dulce Chacón Library web page is now fully accessible to all users. It has Level AAA Conformance to WAI Web Accessibility Guidelines.

    THE UNIVERSITY SPORTS COMPLEX (Villaviciosa de Odón Campus): The university's most cutting edge facilities are at the Villaviciosa campus, where it has 14,000 m2 of sports facilities, reflecting the importance given to the educational value of sport. The facilities include: fitness room, heated pool, multi-sports pavilion, tennis courts, football pitch with artificial turf, athletics track, etc.

    THE LABORATORIES: The university has laboratories where students carry out practical research projects related to each of their specialist subjects. The laboratories are equipped with the instruments and IT equipment needed to meet the demands associated with each of the practical objectives of each training program.

    The UEM Lab: At the UEM, English as a second language is a key part of the training we offer our students. One of the main learning tools is the UEM Lab, equipped with an advanced multimedia system that enables students to quickly improve their English language skills and allows for personalized monitoring of students' progress, which is complemented with classroom lessons, tutorials and complementary activities. Students also have access to a wide range of extracurricular English language activities which are offered periodically over the course of the academic year.

    NetUEM: The aim of the Universidad Europea de Madrid is to boost the use of information and communication technologies on all its degree programs as a means of supporting and complementing teaching practice. The use of a Virtual Campus, developed on the Moodle platform as a complementary tool for working, increases the options for distributing knowledge and for communications between students and professors, making it easier to provide personalized attention and monitoring through virtual tutoring sessions, encouraging independent learning, enhancing student skills such as searching for and organizing information, planning and the capacity for debate.

    The Online Campus is integrated into the UEM's academic management system, which means that all teachers who have uploaded courses to it have automatic access to a virtual space on the Moodle platform associated with each course. Also, every student enrolled in a degree program will be linked in with the courses they have signed up for on the Online Campus.

    Using the Online Campus to provide students with documents in electronic format, to enable students to submit assignments in an organized and timely manner, to communicate with students on a particular course in a fast and efficient way and to carry out individual and group tasks (wikis, forums, chats, queries, etc.), enables teachers to perform their role in a fast and dynamic way and to establish an alternative means of communicating with students outside the classroom.

    Throughout this process, teachers are provided with institutional support, with access to class-based and online training courses. Each faculty also has a mentor who can advise and help teachers with matters such as technical aspects of using the platform and adapting their subject matter to the virtual environment.

    • Students will participate actively in a real sports event. They will have the opportunity to train as a team over months to tackle an obstacle course at the end of the Master's Degree.

    Admissions Process

    Period

    The admissions process for the programs of the Universidad Europea Real Madrid Graduate School usually takes place six months before the start of the course. During this period, all the candidate selection and registration processes will be completed, until the places are filled.

If calling from outside Spain, the phone number is (+34) 917 407 272.

    Process and requirements

    Before enrolling for the first time at the Universidad Europea, students are sent all the information they need on the entry and enrollment process, the course curriculum, academic fees and study grants. This information is available through the informational material of each degree, the admission regulations and the Master's Degree Teaching Guide, without prejudice to all the information shown on the website of Universidad Europea de Madrid and Universidad Europea Real Madrid Graduate School.

    Students can ask to visit either of the University' campuses and to have personal interviews with Admissions personnel or with the directors of the Master's Degree.

    Students enrolling for the first time at UEM follow the procedure established by the university, as follows:

    • Personalized advice
    • After the application with the documentation required for each case has been presented and verified by the admissions service, students will be invited for individual interviews with the professor in charge of the course they will take.
    • Universidad Europea de Madrid requires a personal interview before admission, and where applicable, evaluates the academic record, in order to assess elements relating to the academic and professional success of each student and detect their specific training needs.
    • During the interview there will be a non-selective English test, in line with the language skills required in each mode of study.
    • All students admitted after the selection process receive a letter from the university, informing them of admission to the degree program course for which they have fulfilled the entrance requirements.
    • Formal reservation of a place and enrollment.

    Following this process, the student will apply to the University's admissions department for admission to the Master's Degree in question. The application documentation will be sent to the department, which will check whether the student meets the requirements for entrance, if certain elements of their careers or academic records can be recognized, and if applicable, whether they can accredit the education needed to enter the relevant degree course. 

    The favorable report by the Director of the Master's Degree is sent to the University's Graduate Studies Committee which will issue admission to the relevant Master's Degree, for which the student will attend the interview established as the entry test, and if this is passed, enrollment in the Registrar's Office.

    Admission to the Master's Degree will not alter in any way the academic or professional qualifications already held by the interested party, nor their recognition for purposes other than acceptance onto a Master's Degree course.

    • Hold a degree from an education system outside the European Higher Education Area without requiring recognition of their degree, once the University has verified that they can accredit a level of education and training equivalent to the corresponding Spanish accredited degrees and which qualify the holder for admittance to graduate courses in the issuing country. Admission in these circumstances will in no way imply recognition of the previous degree held by the interested party, nor its recognition for purposes other than admittance to a Master's Degree course.
    • Demonstrate a suitable level of English for the chosen mode of study, to be assessed in a personal interview

This can be requested via the Universidad Europea de Madrid website.

    For these purposes, a credit transfer means that the official accrediting documents of the courses taken by each student will include all the credits obtained on accredited courses previously taken in this or another university, which have not led to the subsequent qualification being awarded.

    Also, credit recognition means that the University accepts credits which, having been obtained by the student in official studies, in this or in another university, for other official studies for the purposes of obtaining an accredited degree.

    In accordance with the relevant legislation, private degrees from universities and accredited professional experience can also be recognized in the form of credits, and will count towards obtaining an accredited degree, provided that this experience relates to the competencies inherent in that degree, to a maximum of 15% of the credits making up the curriculum. In no case can a graduation project be recognized.

    All the credits obtained by a student in accredited learning in any university, those transferred, recognized and passed to obtain the corresponding qualification, will be included on his/her transcript and reflected in the European Diploma Supplement.

    Through the Graduate Committee, the University will evaluate the student's file, accredited qualifications, private degrees or professional experience, and depending on the course curriculum and specific subjects with equivalents in the competencies, content and dedication of the student, determine whether they can be recognized.

    Information for enrolled students

    Before the academic year officially begins, all the new students enrolled for the first academic year receive notification of the date, time and place of an introduction and welcome session for their degree course, attended by the directors of the Master's Degree and representatives of the school's senior academic directors and Academic Coordinator, who will give them useful information for beginning their university activities. Also, this first session of the Master's Degree will include a presentation and explanation of the course curriculum, in terms of its goals, learning methods and forms of evaluation, teaching resources and facilities.

    After enrolling, students are offered ways to become part of campus life and enjoy the services the University offers to its students. In the first days of the academic year, there are information stands on campus, offering all university students general written and spoken information on the services on and around the campus.

    Graduate students are continuously supported and monitored by the University through contact with the Student Affairs department, the Academic Coordinator and Academic Directors, and especially with the Directors of the Master's Degree, who act as personal mentors to the students throughout the course.

    During the course, students are also kept informed on all the extracurricular activities going on in and around the University by email, the news forums of the Virtual Campus and the noticeboards on campus.
