Visiting Students 2020/2021


The visiting student programme is aimed at students who wish to complete their education by studying certain subjects, chosen from all those taught at the university.

Students who are interested in studying in the ULPGC for one or two semesters outside an exchange program can do so as an independent fee paying student. These students follow the same procedures, need to meet the same entrance requirements as exchange students and pay the official rates.

Visiting students are all students or graduates from non-Spanish universities which, in order to extend their training or to have been admitted to ULPGC centres for a temporary stay, in order to be able to take part in the partial studies of the undergraduate or non-professionalised master’s degree courses given at this University and will get a certificate of their academic progress, in case they take any exams. However, the scores obtained as a visiting student won’t have academic official validity in ULPGC.

  • 1º Semester: 15th May until 30th June
  • 2º Semester: 1st September until 31st December

  • The enrollment at the courses will be subject to the availability of places in the courses;
  • Visiting students cannot enroll the final project of undergraduate and master degrees.
  • Visiting students are not eligible for mobility programs and are not entitled to complete a university degree at ULPGC;
  • Visiting students are required to organize all aspects of their study abroad independently (admission, enrollment and non-academic requirements such as visas, accommodation and travel, living and academic expenses).

The final decision will be taken within two weeks after the application.
