What do I need to do in order to become a student?

All candidates need to apply for the “Entrance Examination” (Prueba de Acceso) that consists of a psychometric test, an interview, and an English test (to verify the level of English of the candidate). It is a Qualifying Examination.

For EU international students

You will need to obtain a “credential” from UNED. This document will certify that you are eligible to enter any university in the EU.

For Non-EU international students, there are three ways of being admitted to the Chiropractic programme

  1. If you are a current student in a college or university programme and want to continue your studies in the Chiropractic Programme.
  2. If you hold a college or university degree.
  3. Applying for a verification from UNED.

What is the language of the Chiropractic Programme?

  • This programme is taught in Spanish and English.
  • We recommend that non-Spanish speakers attend a basic Spanish language course before enrolling in the programme.
  • Once in the programme, we have a follow-up system to help the student develop skills in Spanish. Most foreign students transition well from a basic knowledge of Spanish to the level required for the upper years of training.
Program taught in:
  • Spanish (Spain)
  • English
