Timetables, exams and regulations

Classes timetables, exams schedule and regulations are available at: Current course (link). 

Prices and fees

The information about the prices is to be found at: Prices (link).

The credit price increases as the subject is repeated (the more times it is repeated the more the price increases).


        a) The Fall Semester period for changes ends on September 23

             (except Europhotonics, in which case this period ends on October 31)

        b) Spring Semester period for changes end on February 27.


      1. Except for MET students, you will need a document signed by your supervisor (they are listed in the step previous to enrolment, at the beginning of this page).
      2. After having sent that document, you will have to do the request by esecretaria.upc.edu (procedures > related to enrollment > enrollment change).

Only one change: You are allowed to do only one change request (unless a course ceases to be taught).

Additional fees. Changes after the deadline

If you do the change after the deadline fixed for enrolment changes, you must pay some additional prices.



  • The UPC regulations establish that the last day for modifications for the Autumn Semester period ends on September 23 and for the Spring semester February 17 (exceptionally given that this semester starts on the 17 we will allow changes until February 27).
  • They establish as well that the deadline to request the withdraw of any subjects  is the October 31 (Autumn semester) or March 31 (Spring Semester). No changes will be allowed beyond those deadlines and all the credits enrolled have to be paid on the established deadlines.

Reasons that give right to the reimbursement of fees after the deadline for enrollment changes

The reasons that justify reimbursement of fees are regulated by the UPC budget, which is available at the following link in Catalan: motius de devolució. They are basically: illness or accident of the student, changes for which the school is responsible and changes in the price of the fees (validation of courses in the same semester where they are enrolled, concession of a scholarship, etc.).

Reasons that do NOT give right to reimbursement after the deadline for enrollment changes

The following reasons do NOT justify the reimbursementof fees, and if they are not paid, payment will be claimed:
      1. Changes in working hours or starting a new job do NOT justify reimbursement of fees.
      2. Mistakes made by the student in their enrolment do NOT justify reimbursement of fees. 

Procedure to request reimbursement of fees

In order to request for reimbursement of fees, you have to fill in and sign a document in the Academic Office of Building B3. You will also have to submit official documents that demonstrate the reasons cited at your request (official certificate of illness or accident with the date where it started and the period of convalescence, etc.).

Deadline to do the request: In some cases, return is denied if the request is made after one month since registration date, or after some dates stated at the link above. You should do the request as soon as the circumstance takes place.

Compensation of money in the same semester

The price of the credits elliminated will compensate the price of other credits enrolled afterwards in the same semester. If the master is annual, it can be compensated in the same academic year. But remember that, if you do the change after the deadline fixed for enrolment changes, you must pay some additional prices.

Username, password and ICT services and useful websites

When you accepted the admission to the master, you were assigned a username and password to do the payment in advance of enrollment (300 euros). This username and password gives you access to:

  • The electronic secretary (e-secretaria), which is necessary to do changes in your enrolment, request for certificates, etc.
  • The Virtual Campus Atenea.
  • The ICT services of ETSETB (Intranet, student mail adress, etc).
