Recognition of credits

According to Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, the recognition of credits is defined as the acceptance by a university of credits that, having been obtained in official training, in the same or another university, are taken into consideration in other universities for the purpose of obtaining an official degree.

The transfer of credits implies that, in the official documents certifying the studies of each student, all the credits obtained in official training taken previously, in the same or another university, that have not led to obtaining an official degree, will be included.

All the credits obtained (transferred, recognised and passed) by the student in official training, will be included in his/her academic record and reported in the European Diploma Supplement.

As for the recognition and transfer of credits in Bachelor's Degree courses, the following basic rules must be respected:

  1. As of the 2015/16 academic year, and in application of Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February, which modifies Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes the regulation of official university education, and Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies, as long as the degree to which the student intends to gain access belongs to the same branch of knowledge, at least 15 percent of the credits corresponding to basic training subjects in that branch will be recognised.
  2. Credits obtained in other basic training subjects belonging to the branch of knowledge of the degree to which the student intends to gain access will also be recognised.
  3. The rest of the credits may be recognised by the University considering the adequacy between the skills and knowledge acquired, either in other subjects or studies taken by the student or associated with previous professional experience, and those provided for in the curriculum or which are of a transverse nature.
