Visiting students

Visiting students are students who participate in an official course of study at the UPC in order to complete part of their university education, but do not do so as part of a mobility programme or under any other sort of agreement that allows them to enrol at the UPC free of charge.

Visiting students at the UPC may take a maximum of 60 ECTS credits of a bachelor’s degree and 30 ECTS credits of a master’s degree, as this is the maximum number of credits that may be recognised in their academic record if they are later admitted officially to the same degree as UPC students. Until this occurs, visiting students are not considered UPC students.

Students affected by the academic progress regulations may not gain admission as visiting students.

Visiting students have the right to be assessed and to receive a certificate stating that they have studied at the UPC.
