Information for future incoming students (academic year 2020/21)

Currently, due to the health crisis caused by Covid-19, it is not possible to foresee what the situation will be in September 2020 and to confirm that the on-site teaching will be resumed by then.
For this reason, we recommend that students nominated to study at UAM from September onwards, check periodically the up-dated information that will be published on this website, as well as the information that will be sent by e-mail to students and partner universities. We also recommend not making any mobility-related expenses (airline tickets, accommodation, etc.) yet.

For questions related to the application for a student visa,you should check directly with the Spanish Consulate in your home country. The situation is evolving and the student visa procedures could be on hold at the moment. Also, different countries might establish different restrictions or specifications for the visa procedures.
