According to Royal Decree 1393/2007, graduate studies must provide the student with both basic and sufficient academic training for professional practice and qualify them to continue studying and pursue a master degree. Master degree studies include advanced specialized and multidisciplinary training, the aim of which will be academic and professional specialization or embarking on research activities. Master degrees are required to access PhD studies, which are aimed at providing advanced training in the field of research and lead to preparing a PhD thesis and obtaining a PhD qualification. The master degrees have been adapted to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and are structured in ECTS credits (European Credit Transfer System), which make it possible to share a compatible credit system, comparable criteria and methodologies and a duration similar to that of European qualifications, with the aim of facilitating and promoting the mobility and incorporation of students into the European workforce. Master degree studies have a minimum of 60 credits and a maximum of 120 credits. This equates to one to two academic years. ECTS credits are characterized by being student-centered to ensure the student leads their own learning process. Each credit is equivalent to 25 hours of training and is used to count class hours (theoretical and practical), personal study, participation in seminars, assignments, external internships and assessment tests. During an academic year, a student can get a maximum of 60 full-time credits and 30 if they have a part-time job. The master degrees at Blanquerna-URL School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences are aimed at diploma and bachelor degree holders and graduates, as well as professionals in need of continuing education.

The aim of the master degree thesis (TFM) is to engage students in a case study involving research, assessment and intervention related to the activities carried out in the external internship modules or with the lines of research of the master degree faculty members.
Students taking this course must submit a master degree project or a research study supervised by a doctoral professor attached to the master degree program. This project will be publicly defended before a panel made up of faculty members from the master degree program.
The aim of this course is to assess the extent to which the student has taken advantage of, and integrated, the contents taught throughout the master degree and how it has enabled them, through broad data research, to prepare an academic report in which they demonstrate their abilities to carry out an intervention or research project (thesis).
The master degree thesis enables students to delve into a topic of interest and design a research project in relation to it. This work will be overseen by an advisor who will conduct follow-up tutorials at seminar sessions held in small groups to foster cooperative learning.
The master degree thesis can be written in Catalan or Spanish. However, upon a prior written request from the director, the master degree or PhD academic management team (EGA) may authorize it to be submitted in another language. In such case, a summary of the project must be provided in Catalan or Spanish.
The master degree thesis will be publicly defended before a panel made up of faculty members of the relevant master degree, some of whom must hold a PhD. Students will have ten minutes to defend their thesis. Students must prioritize the aspects of their work that they consider most relevant and summarize them clearly, precisely, and completely. After the arguments have been presented, students must respond to observations, comments, and questions from the members of the panel.
OBJECTIVES: To show the intellectual maturity and research capacity of the student. To prepare an original work, based on the student's personal work carried out with their advisor's orientation and guidance, reflecting what was learned throughout the master degree course.
The teaching-learning methodology is grouped into three modalities through which the student's competencies in the subject are addressed: in-person work, supervised work and independent work.
The assessment criteria for the master degree thesis are concerned with the skills consolidated during the preparation process, the final product and the defense of the thesis itself. The final grade will thus be the result of various partial assessments:
The global approach of the master degree, and specifically of each of its modules, the master degree thesis and the development of external internships, is geared towards professional practice, with general and advanced training in the attitudes, skills and knowledge required for action in the field of health psychology.
Support in infant, elementary and first cycle of compulsory secondary education.
Teacher in special education schools.
Hospital classroom teacher in leading hospital schools where the relevant service has been created.
In specific centers and services.

University master's degrees are official degrees awarded by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training, in accordance with the requirements of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and the guidelines set out in the Bologna Declaration. To access the official master degree, you must hold an official Spanish university degree, or a degree from another country that is part of the European Higher Education Area. Access to master degree studies is regulated by Royal Decree 822/2021, of 28 September.
These studies are also open to students with a degree issued by an education system outside the European Higher Education Area, who do not need to have it approved, provided that the level of training is equivalent to that of an official Spanish degree and that, in the country of origin, the degree gives access to graduate studies. However, admission does not in any case imply the convalidation of the degree or any other type of recognition beyond allowing the student to access master and graduate studies at the University.
Phases of the admission process
The admission process for university master degree studies at the School is developed over 3 stages:
Students can pre-enroll online (by accessing Pre-enrollment | Blanquerna or the pre-enrollment option for each course) and also in person at the school.
For online pre-enrollment, you will need to:
Once pre-enrollment has been completed, the candidate will be offered a date for an interview with the degree coordinator, who will assess their suitability and solve any doubts they may have about the course for which they are enrolling. Motivation, academic transcript and professional experience will be taken into account for the selection of students. Once the assessment is complete, the student will be informed of the result of the admission and how to enroll, if admitted.
Prior to enrollment, the person concerned must upload the following to the document repository the documents previously mentioned:
Enrollment formalization is the final procedure to obtain a place in the master degree:
Alumni of official qualifications from the School are given a 15% discount on the enrollment fee (non-cumulative discount) if they enroll full time and for all the credits that the qualification offers. Prices are updated each academic year. Once enrollment is complete, the amount paid will not be refunded under any circumstances.
Students who are admitted can choose between two forms of enrollment, depending on whether they already qualify for university admission:
When a student enrolls, a contract for the provision of teaching services is formalized between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation, which is legally binding from the time of payment. Payment includes the corresponding insurance and, for students under the age of twenty-eight, compulsory academic insurance. If a student declines to take up a place, he/she will lose in full any amount he/she has paid.
The student accepts the rules for the use of computer services established by the Blanquerna Foundation. The student's personal data will be included in an automated file under the responsibility of the Blanquerna Foundation, so that this contract can be maintained and fulfilled. Students should note that their data may also be used to inform them about the future activities of the Foundation, or for the institution to send them publications.
In accordance with the provisions of Organic Law 15/1999 on the protection of personal data, students have the right to access their data to update, rectify or cancel them, or object to their use, by sending a letter, indicating which right they want to exercise.
This section is a summary of the general conditions for enrollment. It is only for guidance and therefore has no contractual value. In the event of any discrepancy, the provisions of the general conditions for enrollment specified in the receipt generated at the time of enrollment will prevail; this receipt formalizes the contract between the student and the Blanquerna Foundation; students can consult it on the intranet whenever they wish.
The School cannot guarantee that a course will be available if the requirement for a minimum number of enrollments is not met. In this case, the amount paid for enrollment and pre-enrollment will be refunded in full.
The School reserves the right to ask candidates with qualifications obtained outside the EES for a letter from their university, embassy or consulate to certify that their studies enable them to pursue a master degree or graduate studies.
Students are responsible for having all the official documentation necessary for their stay in Spain while studying at the School. Applicants can ask for a pre-acceptance document attached to the pre-enrollment receipt to initiate applications for visas or scholarships or carry out any other administrative procedure. Under no circumstances does this document guarantee a place if all the access and admission requirements are not met. Once applicants have been accepted and enrollment is complete, they can request a letter of admission from the Academic Secretary, if required, by paying the corresponding fees.
For any doubts or queries about the pre-enrollment or enrollment process, please contact the School's Student Information and Orientation Service.
Course fees are paid in installments without any interest. At the time of enrollment, 50% of the total cost of the credits for which the student is enrolled must be paid*; the remaining 50% is split into monthly installments payable by direct debit.
As the European Union points out, gender equality is not only a matter of social justice but also affects the results of teaching and research. Promoting gender equality in research and innovation is one of the European Commission's commitments, and it supports the explicit integration of a gender perspective in Horizon 2020 projects. However, this recommendation is often poorly understood and misapplied. Various documents are presented here with a view to contributing to a better understanding and application of the gender perspective in teaching and research.
Excellence is the future
