Preregistration and matriculation

Preregistration

Students who meet the access requirements and wish to enrol in one of the specific taught components of the doctoral programmes offered by the University of Salamanca and regulated by Royal Decree 99/2011 must apply through completing the preregistration procedure.
Preregistration applications must be sent via email to escueladedoctorado@usal.es. They will be attached as a single archival file whose file name will contain the name of the applicant and that of the doctoral programme for which he or she is preregistering. The archival file will include the following numbered documentation:

  1. Preregistration/matriculation form
  2. Copy of national identity document or passport
  3. Copy of the university qualification that allows the applicant access.
  4. Transcript of the courses studied for the university qualification that allows the applicant access. This must expressly mention courses’ names, durations and qualification levels, as well as the average grade obtained.
  5. Copy of the university degree certificate and, where appropriate, for international qualifications, a copy of the access decision for master’s studies at the University of Salamanca.
  6. Transcript of the subjects studied in the degree
  7. Curriculum vitae
  8. Specific documentation required for each doctoral programme. Information on this documentation is located in the “additional information” section for each doctoral programme.

Preregistration is a separate procedure from the access procedure to be completed by all students with foreign qualifications from outside the European Higher Education Area. Individuals should have received a favourable outcome to the access procedure before completing the matriculation process
