Information for Applicants

System of Change of Institution/Course Pair 2021/2022

The information available on this webpage applies to the cycles of studies leading to a Bachelor’s degree and the integrated cycles of studies leading to a Master’s degree.

The approval of the number of places depends on the dispatch that regulates the establishment of the number of places in the academic year 2021/2022, which will be published by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education (MCTES) and, consequently, may undergo some changes.

Applications Calendar
from 1st July to 13th August

* Does not exempt the students from checking the opening notice for the course they want.

Definition



Change of Institution/Course Pair is when a student enrols and/or registers at an institution/course pair different from the one(s) for which he/she registered in previous academic years.

The Change of Institution/Course Pair may take place with or without interruption of enrolment and registration at a higher education institution.

ECTS Distribution

The places are distributed in two contingents: the 1st curricular year and the remaining years. The division of the contingents is done according to the number of ECTS awarded. The applicant awarded with 35 ECTS will be considered as a 1st curricular year student, but if the applicant is awarded with 36 or more ECTS, then he/she will be considered a remaining years student. The list is ordered according to this distribution.

General Conditions



Students may request for a Change of Institution/Course Pair:

a) if they have already been enrolled and registered at another institution/course pair and have not completed the course;

b) if they have sat the national secondary education exams that correspond to the access exams specific to that pair and that year within the scope of the general system of access to higher education;

c) if, on that exams, they get the minimum grade required by the higher education institution in that year within the scope of the general system of access to higher education.

The specific conditions required for each course will be published on the opening notice of each course.

Students who entered higher education by means of special contests for access should observe specific conditions that must be verified, as laid down in Ordinance no. 181-D/2015, of 19th June.


The Change of Institution/Course Pair is not allowed in the academic year in which the student has been admitted to a higher education institution/course pair according to any access and admission system, and has enrolled and registered.


Students whose enrolment has expired, pursuant to the Regulation of Expirations in the UC, can only apply to this change system after the two semesters concerning the expiration have finished.
