Centre of Postgraduate Studies


The Universidad Autónoma de Madrid wants to become a benchmark among Spanish universities. The Centre of Postgraduate Studies (CEP) was created as an instrument to enable the university to compete on an equal level with other universities which have had similar management centres for a number of years.
CEP centres are involved in the academic and administrative management of official postgraduate studies. It is attached to the Deputy Vice-chancellor's Office of Postgraduate Studies and receives academic instructions directly from the Commission of Postgraduate Studies and the Doctorate Commission, in their respective areas of authority.
