All the courses offered by Comillas Pontifical University, at both bachelor's and postgraduate level, are subject to admission requirements and admission criteria, whose details depend on the course:

The admission requirements basically relate to the candidate's previous academic qualifications which enable him or her to apply for admission to a particular course.

The admission criteria are related to the process of student selection for each course. For example, admission to degree courses at our University does not depend exclusively on your final A-level Assessment for University Access (or other forms of legally established access), but there is a wider set of tests that allows a more specific selection for each course. The admission criteria usually include: academic record of the candidate, letters of presentation from teachers, multiple-choice tests carried out at the faculty/school concerned, personal interview, etc.

The admission requirements and admissions criteria are defined for each course.

The bachelor's degree admissions process can be summed up in five chronological steps:

01Visit the Center on the Open Day. This step is not vital, but potential candidates are encouraged to get to know the centers, see the facilities, and collect additional information if they have visited previously.

02Apply for Admission. The process starts on-line, once a decision has been taken about which course the candidate wishes to apply for. If it is deemed necessary, an application for grants and financial aid from the University can be made at the same time as applying for admission.

03Take the Admissions Test for the center which offers the course. There is information on the web pages of the centers about what types of tests are used as well as samples of past papers from previous years.

04Notification and P.A.U. University Entrance Exam. At the end of May candidates will be notified about whether or not they have been accepted for the degree for which they have applied. Being accepted does not exempt them from sitting the P.A.U. University Entrance Exam which is a legal requirement for formalizing enrollment.

05Formalizing Enrollment. Once admitted the student must formalize his or her enrollment. The process starts on-line, but it is necessary to present the printed copy of the enrollment and the additional documentation in the Registry before the end of June. Classes start on the first Monday in September. The pre-university campus for students who want to integrate into university life more easily takes place in late August.

Annex I

Comillas firmly believes that no promising student should be denied access to any of our courses for financial reasons. This system is mainly funded by the University itself, with contributions from the Comillas-ICAI University Foundation, the Grants Fund for Ecclesiastical Studies, as well as from alumni, friends of the University, businesses and organizations. We are able to support several hundred students through this system; but it is not enough. To fulfill our commitment to providing access to even our most expensive programs for promising students who lack the necessary financial means to meet the costs of higher education, we need and are prepared to do so much more. We have added several special grants to our range of financial aid that cover a broader spectrum of needs and are designed for academically outstanding students with limited financial means. In fair return for this financial support, the University asks for a solid academic commitment from recipients of these grants.

With this aim in mind, Comillas Pontifical University ANNOUNCES:

12 Extraordinary Grants for incoming students on ICADE, ICAI and RRITI Bachelor's Degree programs that cover over 60% of the cost of the program, subject to evidence of both the student’s academic excellence and financial situation.

Applications will be assessed according to the following criteria:

  • Academic Record.
  • Admissions test result.
  • Family financial situation.

The Study Grant Commission will process the applications and present them to the Rector who, where appropriate, will allocate the grants. The Rector's decision will be final.

Grants can be renewed each academic year under the same terms, provided that the student's academic performance places them in the upper half of the cohort of students in the same year on the same course, and that their family's financial situation prevents the amount of aid from being reduced.

If the student does not meet the requirements for renewal, but they do meet those established in the call for applications for study grants and financial aid from the University, their application will be assessed in line with this call.

 

DOCUMENTATION:

 

The application form, required documentation, submission date and grant simulator correspond to the call for applications for study grants and financial aid.

These grants are funded by the University itself, along with contributions from the Comillas-ICAI University Foundation and from individuals, businesses, institutions and organizations.

The Study Grant Commission is responsible for allocating University grants and financial aid.

These grants are especially designed for any of our programs related to Education and Social Work.

What do these grants cover?

These grants consist of reduced tuition fees during the 4 or 5 academic years of the program.

At Comillas, we firmly believe that no talented student with the ability to apply themselves and a strong affinity with our values should be denied a place at our University for financial reasons. As such, in addition to our range of study grants and financial aid, ICAI-ICADE Comillas Pontifical University also offers a limited number of places to live in Madrid in collaboration with various Halls of Residence and University Accommodation centers. This scheme consists of partial grants toward the annual cost of living in Halls of Residence and University Accommodation for students from limited-income families living outside the Community of Madrid.

Who is eligible for these grants?

Students enrolled on the first academic year of any BA degree program (excluding the San Juan de Dios' University School of Nursing and Physical Therapy), who come from limited-income families domiciled outside the Community of Madrid.

Call for applications

What do these grants cover?

These grants consist of a 40% discount on the annual cost of staying at the Halls of Residence and University Accommodation participating in this scheme.

These grants are renewable each academic year and will be renewed providing the requirements in the corresponding Call for applications are met.

The corresponding Call for applications will run providing there are places available among those offered at Halls of Residence and University Accommodation, including those offered due to the end of the current occupant's studies or due to students losing or turning down their places.

The Grant Commission for places at Halls of Residence and University Accommodation can revoke these grants if the student leaves the University, Halls of Residence or University Accommodation: 1) under application of disciplinary action in the corresponding Halls of Residence or University Accommodation; 2) due to failure to meet the renewal criteria set by the Halls of Residence or University Accommodation; and 3) if the student decides to stop living in the Halls of Residence or University Accommodation.

Study grants and financial aid from the University

University study grants and financial aid are funded through University funds and contributions from the Comillas-ICAI University Foundation, the Fund of Church Grants, the non-autonomous foundation for candidates to the priesthood and other organizations and individuals.

Financial aid and grants for Nursing and Physical Therapy programs are organized by the School of Nursing and Physical Therapy and the Brothers Hospitallers of San Juan de Dios (Bética Province).

The Study Grant Commission will decide on the award of University grants and financial aid according to the funds allocated to this service each academic year.

Students who wish to renew a grant can do so between March 1 and April 22, 2016. Students at Ecclesiastical Faculties and student members of religious or diocesan communities can also renew grants during this period. Incoming students should apply for grants and financial aid during the dates set for submitting their University Application.

Who is eligible for these grants?

University study grants are intended for future Bachelor's Degree students at Comillas.

What do these grants cover?

University study grants consist of a partial reduction of tuition fees for Bachelor's Degree programs.

How long do these grants last?

Grants are awarded for one academic year, with renewal subject to reapplication.

Students whose family income is within the brackets set by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in their call for grant applications must apply to the Ministry.

Academic requirements

  1. Incoming students should not already have a university degree. Exceptions may be made in special circumstances.
  2. Students should register for subjects or credits amounting to no less than 60% of the average amount for a regular academic year. Financial aid is not usually awarded for academic years or subjects that are being repeated or for credits above the amount recommended by the authorities managing the corresponding academic year of the degree. The student's academic performance, as assessed by the corresponding academic authority, will be taken into account in all cases.

Financial requirements

Students whose net family income is lower than the thresholds established in each call for applications are eligible to apply for study grants and financial aid.
