This is an extrapolation based 2020-21 rules: this year the Aragon government has not published the official fees yet. In case of mismatch, the official information is that found at: https://academico.unizar.es/en/preinscripcion-master/preinscripcion-master and related pages.
Calls for enrollment: (approx, based on previous years; we don't have the new deadlines yet)
1st call (pre-opening): March 22- April 14, 2021 (Enrollment and payment: end of July )
2nd call (official opening): June-July 2021 (Enrollment and payment: end of July )
Last call: September 2021 (Enrollment and payment: end of September)
1) since for the 1st and 2nd calls the enrollment is in July, applicants in the 1st call are pre-admitted upon advancing 150 euros; this amount is discounted from the total in case they complete they enrollment in July.
2) September offer refers to the free places still left after July enrollment (which is the main one), so that the general recommendation is "the sooner, the better".
case A): EU students, students residing in Spain, students coming under special agreements (Fundación Carolina, Nanjing Tech):37.4 eur (cost/ECTS) x 90 ECTS=3366 eur + 57.07 (fixed costs, insurance) = 3423.07 eur.
case B): Non-EU, non-resident students: 74.8 eur (cost/ECTS) x 90 ECTS=6732 eur + 157.07 (fixed costs, insurance) = 6889.07 eur.
Prospective students first apply for access (Non-EU students only) and admission: the applicants who don't already have a UZ identification number (NIA) should ask for one (see https://academico.unizar.es/en/preinscripcion-master/preinscripcion-master ); once they are granted admission, they are expected to pay the fee and enroll.
Students' applications undergo a two-step examination by the Board o Post-graduate Studies (Comisión de Estudios de Posgrado):
1) first, the Board checks if the applicant fulfils the conditions to enter the Master Programme (i.e, she/he has a proper bachelor degree, fulfils language requirements, etc) or if they are reasonably expected to do so at the moment of enrollment. This step is usually smooth for students with a bachelor degree obtained in Spain or EU countries, but requires a thorough analysis for non-EU students (type B in the previous slide), unless they have already obtained
a certification of equivalence from the spanish ministry, since the Board has to assess if their degree entitles them to access a postgraduate program.
2) In the "admission" step, the applicants that have been granted access are ranked and selected according to their academic score (70%), and the affinity of their previous studies (degree studies: 25%; extracurricular studies 5%) with the subjects of the master.
