More information

Applicants interested in studying the Bachelor's Degree in Veterinary Medicine of a general nature at UCAM must have completed the Baccalaureate in Health Sciences. Regardless, students are expected to have a knowledge of Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Biology.

In addition to meeting the previous requirement, students must provide proof of the minimum level of English and Spanish required (B1 level), according to the European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). However, B2 level is recommended. No level certificate will be required for students who are native speakers of a language, i.e., if a student is a native English speaker, he or she must only provide a B1 level certificate in Spanish.

The final grade obtained in the PAU/EBAU will be taken into account for candidates who have taken this examination. In the event that the number of applications during the temporary allocation phase exceeds the number of places offered, or in the case of candidates with identical qualifications, the date of submission of the application and the average marks obtained in the baccalaureate and/or EBAU will be considered for the allocation of places.

In the case of applicants with an International Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate, both in the European Union and outside the European Union and/or in possession of a qualification equivalent to a baccalaureate from education systems in European Union countries or countries with which international agreements have been established, the final grade obtained in their credential or equivalent document will be taken into account, in addition to a personal interview to check that their language skills in Spanish and English are equivalent to a B1 level, although we recommend a B2 level.

The universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia has established the Regulations on Academic Credit Recognition and Transfer for Undergraduate and Master's Degree courses, which include the following basic rules, as provided for in the applicable legislation:

A) Recognition of core courses credits in Bachelor's Degrees

Degrees belonging to the same field of knowledge - Provided that the degree to which access is sought belongs to the same field of knowledge, recognition will be granted up to the totality of the core training credits.

The rest of the credits may be recognised by the university taking into account the adjustment between the competences and knowledge associated with the other subjects taken by the student, or associated with previous accredited professional work experience, and those foreseen in the syllabus or which are of a cross-curricular nature.

Credits corresponding to the Undergraduate Dissertation (UD) and Master's Dissertation (MD) may not be recognised.

C) Recognition of socio-cultural activities

A maximum of 10 per cent of the total number of optional credits of the syllabus may be recognised for university cultural, sporting, student representation, solidarity and cooperation activities.
