Students are obligated to register for all the credits required at the master’s degree programme.
The student should formalise registration for the master’s degree within the time periods established by ELISAVA and should bring the original of their diploma as well as the certificate of the academic transcript of records along with all of the aforementioned requirements.
This documentation is compulsory at the moment of formalising registration.

The final day by which a request to withdraw registration can be submitted is November 28th.
The withdrawal of registration has the same effect as if the student had not registered.
The withdrawal of registration does not entail the refund of registration fees.
In order to continue in their studies, students must have passed, at a minimum, 50% of the credits corresponding to the subjects registered within the master’s degree programme.
Those students with ongoing studies in the master’s degree programme who want to enrol or reinstate themselves in another master’s degree programme, or graduate degree from the UPF, while simultaneously completing the first, should request permission to undertake concurrent studies.
Those students that have abandoned their studies at ELISAVA because they failed to formalise their registration for two consecutive terms, and that wish to return to their studies, should request their readmission and this should be accompanied by documentation reflecting the motives for the request, not being necessary to have exhausted the terms set out for minimum progress at UPF.
