Specific criteria for the Master's degree

The Master's Degree Academic Committee is ultimately responsible for determining admission. 

If demand exceeds the number of places available, students will be admitted to this Master's Degree according to the following scale:

  • academic merits (4 points)
  • professional experience (2 points)
  • university teaching activity (2 points).
  • research activity (2 points)

The score obtained is multiplied by a corrective factor according to the years that have passed since the completion of the original degree (to enable the admission of recent graduates with a good academic record and to avoid all the places available being covered by experienced professionals). The evaluation of the records and the application of the scale is carried out by the Master's Degree Academic Committee, which is made up of the Director of the Master's, the Head of Quality Assurance and the Secretary.

* Correction factor: 1 (less than 5 years since the end of the degree); 0.9 (between 5 and 10 years); 0.8 (more than 10 years)
