Recognition of credits

Credit recognition consists in incorporating credits previously obtained to the record of an official qualification, through education or professional experience.

The students of the Mathematics and Computer Science degrees that want to recognize/validate subjects done in other university courses and/or credits computable as optional for taking part in institutional activities of the Faculty and UB which are cultural, related to sport, representing students, solidary or cooperative, will have to:

  1. Fill the form for credit recognition and scan the academic documentation or other suited documents via the internet through the website.
  2. Hand in the documentation at the Secretary’s office. In case of soliciting academic recognition of activities organized by the Faculty of Mathematics, you need not present any document.

In the case of people not enrolled in this Faculty, the procedure cannot be done online. You will have to present the request for recognition and the documentation at the Secretary’s office of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science or via e-mail at sec-matematiques@ub.edu.

Documentation to attach at the application:

1. In the case of studies started in other Spanish universities:

  • Original personal academic certificate which includes the training obtained, the academic year and the marks with the average grade of the record (*).
  • Teaching plan for the subjects that include the competences, the associated knowledge and the number of credits, hours or weeks per semester or year, with the stamp of the corresponding center of origin.
  • Curriculum of the university of origin where the types of subjects are included: basic, compulsory, optional, etc.

*If it is another center of the UB itself, an academic record will suffice.

2. In the case of studies started at foreign universities:

  • Document certifying the nationality of the applicant issued by the competent authorities of his country, which can be replaced by a certified photocopy of the passport or residence permit in Spain or, in the case of Spanish citizens, by a certified photocopy of the DNI.
  • Original personal academic certificate which includes the training obtained, the academic year and the qualifications.
  • Teaching plan of the subjects passed in which they include the competences, the associated knowledge and the number of credits, of hours or of weeks per semester or year, with the seal of the center of origin.
  • Information on the grading system of the university of origin (minimum grade to pass) and total class hours of the subjects.
  • Plan of studies of origin. The documents must be official originals, issued by the competent authorities and properly legalized and translated. For more information, check the website of the Ministry of Education, Social Policy and Sport of the Spanish Government.

    Original documents must be submitted together with a certified photocopy. The original documents are returned to the interested party when the due diligence has been made. If the photocopies are already certified and legalized before a notary or by the consular or diplomatic representations of Spain in the country where the documents originate, It is not necessary to present the original simultaneously.

Note: If the documents do not appear in Spanish, they must be translated by a sworn translator.

 

3. In case of soliciting academic recognition of activities organized by the Faculty of Mathematics, you need not present any document.

Payment and resolution

To resolve the recognition / validation it is essential to pay the corresponding fees, which can be done directly if requested online or at the Secretariat by credit card, or at any “La Caixa”, Caixa de Catalunya or Banco de Santander with a receipt that must be collected beforehand in the Secretariat and of which a sealed copy must be returned.

In the case of academic recognition for participation in institutional activities, no fee will be required. This procedure is free and you only have to pay the credits recognized at the time of enrollment.

The student has to recieve the resolution of recognition at their address via certified letter. For this reason it is very important to specify it correctly.
