How do I access a bachelor´s degree at the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria with pre-university qualifications from a country that is a member of the European Union?

To enter the Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC) with pre-university studies from the educational systems of European Union member states, you must first homologate your pre-university studies through UNEDasiss accreditation. This provides a digital certificate that enables you to participate in ULPGC’s admissions processes. Further information: 

https://bit.ly/2nROasE 

The admission score is calculated on the basis of the minimum and maximum pass marks in the mark scales of each educational system and in accordance with the criteria and requirements specified for each educational system in Annexe II of the UNEDasiss regulations. Converting the qualifications you obtained in your country to the Spanish scale gives a maximum admission score of 10 points

If the bachelor’s degree you wish to access has a cut-off score of more than 10 points, you can sit the UNED’s Specific Competency Exams or sit the optional phase of the EBAU at the ULPGC in the subjects that offer the most points. When doing this, you can choose 1 to 4 modules with the best two marks being added together to calculate your mark, adding a maximum of 4 points. (You should bear in mind that the maximum admission score for Spanish universities is 14 points.)
