Once the student has been admitted to the Master program, the student must formalize his/her pre-enrollment. This happens through the main services of the Vice-Rectorate for PhD and Postgraduate Studies at the UPM. These services are accessed through the Virtual Polytechnic website.

The following criteria must be taken into account:

- Full-time students must complete between 27 and 33 ECTS because there are only 2 enrollments during one academic year.  One enrollment begins the end of September/ beginning of October and the other occurs at the end of January/beginning of February.  
- Students with scholarships could be enrolled for 60 ECTS during the first period of enrollment by making a request for a complete enrollment to the Secretariat of the Center (ETSI Agrónomos) addressed to the Center of Attention to Users (CAU).
- Part-time students must study at least 12 ECTS.
- Students could study supplementary training lessons in parallel with the Master subjects (up to the maximum number of possible credits per semester), whenever the Master subjects are not closed to supplementary training students.

Instructions for enrollment

The process of enrollment has two stages: obtaining a UPM email account and the self-enrollment itself.

To obtain a UPM email account, follow these steps:

  • Go to: https://www2.upm.es/gsr/correo_alumnos/solicitud.upm

  • Use the same identifier that was used to make the online pre-enrollment in the Master (ID Card or Passport)

  • Use the day and month of birth as the password in the following format (mmdd). Those students, whose date of birth does not have two numbers, must write a zero ahead of the number. Example: January 3rd: (0301)
