From the moment you decide what you want to study until you actually enrol, you will have to take the following steps:

1. Prepare the supporting documents required and submit an ONLINE application for admission.


The first step will be to gather all the required supporting documents to submit your application. Students in the 2nd year of baccalaureate studies must submit the following supporting documents:

  • Candidate’s ID card or passport (or of the legal representative in the case of minors).
  • Academic record of the marks for 4th year ESO, 1st year and 2nd baccalaureate studies (up to the moment of submitting your application). You can ask your school for a certificate or your report card as long as they include your details, the school's details and the year of study.
  • Personal merits: sports, music, etc.
  • Some degrees require a letter of motivation.
  • Language certificates that you have.

See the supporting documents required for entry

When can I apply?

You can do it in two calls:

  • 1st call for applications: from 18 January to 18 February
  • 2nd call for applications: from 15 March to 21 May

You can read this instruction manual to see how our Virtual Office works.

2. Take the corresponding admission tests if the degrees you choose require so.

Admission tests will be held online.

When will admission tests be held?

  • 1st call for applications: 5, 6, 12 and 13 March
  • 2nd call for applications: 14 and 15 May

To find out if the degree you have chosen requires admission tests, please see the admission instructions.

In any case, once the university has successfully processed your application, and only if the chosen degrees require taking admission tests, you will receive all the information about the call by email with the day, time and procedure to follow to take the online admission test (instructions, username, passwords, etc.)

PLEASE NOTE: there are degrees that only require an English test, but if you submit a B2 certificate, you will be exempt from taking it. If you have chosen two degrees and you are exempt in one but not in the other, you will still have to take the test.

3. Check out whether you have been admitted.

You will receive an assessment of your choices in order of preference by email.

However, before receiving the email and until a decision on each of your options is made, you can check the status of your application at:

If you apply for admission and take the exams in the 1st call (March), you will receive a decision on your options on 4 May. If your status is 'waiting list', you should expect to receive a decision on you application by 30 June.

If you have applied in the 2nd call or you have applied for a single-process degree (Medicine, Psychology, Primary Education, Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, Physiotherapy and their combinations), you will receive the decision on 30 June.

4. Pre-enrolment

As there is a limited number of places in the degree programmes, the University of Deusto offers the “Pre-enrolment” system, which is optional for some degree programmes and compulsory for others.


5. Enrolment

You will receive an email with your letter of admission, which will indicate the dates on which you can enrol, always by prior appointment.

If you applied for admission in the 1st call, enrolment will take place in the second half of June, and from 6 July if you applied in the 2nd call or you have chosen a single-process degree.
