Locations and Universities

If you are planning to enroll, then you should start deciding which location/university fits better for you. Each location is handled by a different university:

Master Locations

Warning: if you come from abroad, please note that the campus at Ourense belongs to the University of Vigo, but there is no teaching at all in Vigo. If you plan to enroll at Ourense, you should look for accommodation in that city and not in Vigo.

Eligibility requirements

To be eligible, you will need to fulfill the following requirements

1 – Entry degree

As in any official master, you will need previously holding an University degree (at least undergraduate level) from the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) or, otherwise, you will need certifying that the degree grants access to master or postgraduate studies in your non-EHEA country.

2 – Background knowledge

The entry degree must cover a recommended background knowledge that includes Mathematics (analysis, linear algebra, geometry, basic statistics and probability), Programming, Data Structures, Algorithms and Computer structure fundamentals. For instance, the following degrees are automatically assumed to cover that background knowledge:

  • Computer Science
  • Data Science and Engineering
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Robotics
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Telecommunications Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering

For other careers not listed above, admission will be subject to justification that the background knowledge is covered. This will be assessed depending on the courses included in the student’s academic report associated to the entry degree.

Warning: other training certificates or working experience that cannot be accredited as university training will not be taken into account for fulfilling this requirement.

3 – Language requirements

Since this master is completely taught in English, the students enrolling are required a minimum command of that language, corresponding at least to a B1 English level (although a B2 or higher is recommended) from the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) for Languages.

Warning: to certify the English level, you will need an official certificate that explicitly states the CEFR level (or recognized equivalence) and is included in any of the tables:
ACLES association
CRUE (Conferencia de Rectores de las Universidades Españolas)

Spanish is not mandatory but some minor knowledge of that language is recommended, especially for the daily life and for administration. Besides, University of Santiago de Compostela has additionally required a B1 Spanish level in the past. Check the current Spanish language requirements at your local university.
