Each studies plan is designed individually, and its structure establishes the different itineraries, if any, and all the requisites, whether compulsory or not in the different subjects or modules.

In certain cases, it may be necessary to pass some requirements (credits/subjects) before the student is allowed to prepare the Master’s Final Dissertation (TFM), specified in every plan of studies and defined in the online application.

This information is also available at the Academic Offer link in our web.


  • Additional credits (ECTS)

If your Admission Letter specifies that you must realize “complementos de Formación” or “Additional credits”, you should also enrol those subjects in the online application, or consult the Postgraduate Studies Office at your Faculty, if you have no access to them.

7. Enrolment at UAM for students from interuniversity Master studies who have already enrolled at a different University

The aim is to offer these students access to the University services (Moodle, mail, university card, etc.) and create an academic file for them in Sigma in order to include them in class lists, files and surveys, as well as giving them access to examine their academic files in Sigma.
