How much does registration cost at the UdA?

The UdA is a public university and the amounts of the fees for the State qualifications it teaches (bachelor’s and master’s degrees and doctorates) are defined each year by the Government of Andorra. They are published in the BOPA (Official Gazette of the Principality of Andorra). For online official studies taught in partnership with the UOC, it is also necessary to include the cost of the teaching materials and the fees associated with the registration. In the case of lifelong learning, the cost of the registration is set by the UdA in accordance with each programme.

What are the advantages of studying at the UdA?

  • UdA provides personalised attention and follow-up for the student and very small groups.
  • UdA degrees are characterised by a high degree of employment opportunities.
  • In all the courses taught at the UdA there is a close link with the professional and business worlds of Andorra, with the possibility of doing internships at institutions and companies in and outside Andorra.
  • In all the courses taught at the UdA there is a wide range of international mobility programmes, with the possibility of obtaining financial aid.
  • The educational model of the UdA is innovative and based on the achievement of competencies by overcoming challenges.
  • The UdA offers a combination of high-quality studies and a wide range of benefits with the university card, all in a natural environment.
  • All the qualifications that are taught are aligned with the guidelines of the EHEA (European Higher Education Area) and recognised in the countries that comprise it (48 states). In Andorra, first cycle university qualifications (bachelor’s degrees) last three years while those in the second cycle (master’s degrees) last two years.

Is it possible to access the official studies of the UdA if I haven’t studied in Andorra?

Yes, but the Ministry of Education and Higher Education of the Andorran Government (not the University) must recognise a foreign qualification equivalent to an Andorran high school diploma or an Andorran Advanced Professional Diploma. You must submit an application for access to higher education studies to the One-stop Government Service (Servei de Tràmits), together with the foreign qualification with the Hague Apostille.

Is there an admission test to gain access to studies at the UdA?

Admission to the University of Andorra is not regulated by cut-off marks, but there may be an admission test if the demand for studies exceeds the offer of places.

What language are the studies taught in?

UdA studies are taught in Catalan, although some subjects are offered in English and, in the case of the Bachelor of Teaching and Learning, also in French. During the first year, non-Catalan-speaking students are strongly encouraged to acquire knowledge of the Catalan language. More information

What level of English do I need to study at the UdA?

The recommended English entry level for the UdA is B1 in accordance with the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages), as the level of the English subjects for the different qualifications begins at B2.1. This level is recommended because some of the subjects are taught in English at the UdA. If you do not have the recommended level, the UdA offers additional English courses to enable students to reach the B1 level.

What are the teaching hours at the University of Andorra?

On-campus teaching for the UdA’s official studies takes place between 8.30 am and 5:00 pm from Monday to Friday, while lifelong learning has a broader schedule (including Saturdays) to adapt to the students’ working day.

Can I continue to study for a master’s degree in or outside Andorra with the UdA’s studies?

Yes. The bachelor’s degree (first cycle) qualifications of the UdA provide access to master’s studies in the countries of the European Higher Education Area. In the case of master’s degrees that provide access to regulated professions such as laws, it is necessary to meet the requirements stipulated in each country.

Are UdA degrees recognised outside Andorra for professional practice?

UdA degrees are recognised throughout the European Higher Education Area and they allow graduates to practise most professions (non-regulated professions).

With regard to regulated professions, as in the cases of Nursing and Teaching and Learning, the requirements of the country where one intends to practise the profession must be met. Information for the purposes of guidance in relation to neighbouring countries:

  • Nursing: Graduates in Nursing obtain direct recognition in France in accordance with the provisions of the Code de la Santé Publique, art. L4311-3. For recognition of the profession in Spain, it is necessary to have the qualification approved, an individual process that each student must undergo through the Spanish ministry responsible for higher education via the Spanish embassy in Andorra. (For more detailed information, please read the regulations of the country in question).
  • Teaching and Learning: In order to work in France, graduates in Teaching and Learning must have successfully completed the specific master’s degree in that country. For recognition of the profession in Spain, it is necessary to have the qualification approved, an individual process that each student must undergo through the Spanish ministry responsible for higher education via the Spanish embassy in Andorra.
