Instructions for enrollment
The process of enrollment has two stages: obtaining a UPM email account and the self-enrollment itself.
1) OBTAINING A UPM EMAIL ACCOUNT
2) Online SELF-ENROLLMENT

In accordance with article 74 of the Enrollment Regulations of the UPM, full-time students must enroll in each period with a minimum of 27 ECTS and a maximum of 33 ECTS. Thus, it is necessary to enroll in all compulsory and elective subjects during the first period (a total of 27 ECTS), The Final Master’s Thesis (15 ECTS) and remaining subjects in the second period (18 ECTS) will make a total of 60 ECTS.

The Master’s Thesis begins during the online period in September and ends in June. Students have a more substantive work load during the second period.
