The UCA offers this course a total of 78 degrees for about 5000 students.
The ten public universities of Andalusia offer for this academic year 2022/2023 an academic offer made up of 1,469 bachelor’s and master’s degrees, adding both teaching modalities to 72,985 places. These are the data offered by the Ministry of University, Innovation and Research of the Junta de Andalucía.
In the case of degrees, the degrees add up to a total of 595 and have 50,829 places assigned. The academic training in which students are specialized is quite heterogeneous in terms of subject breadth and scope of knowledge, with a growing catalog in recent years. In this range of possibilities, we can also see the proliferation of the so-called double degrees, which combine similar or complementary disciplines to provide a more complete and transversal training.
The teachings imparted by nine of the ten Andalusian public academic institutions, since the International University of Andalusia (UNIA) does not have degrees, are distributed among the five major branches of knowledge: Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Legal, and Engineering and Architecture.
Taking into account the allocation of places in this new course that has just started, the titles most in demand by Andalusian students in first preference have been Medicine, Nursing and Psychology, followed by the degrees of Veterinary Medicine, Primary Education, Sciences of Physical Activity and Sport , Law and Dentistry. In the case of Medicine, a total of 9,625 people have chosen it as the first option throughout Andalusia, compared to a demand last school year of 8,515 applications. In Nursing, its high acceptance has resulted in 7,399 requests compared to 7,308 last year, and in Psychology, applications have reached 4,733, while last year they were 4,617.
In general, access to undergraduate studies requires passing the Baccalaureate Evaluation Test for University Access (PEvAU) and the allocation of a place is made by each academic institution by virtue of the grade (note court) and according to the preferences indicated by the students in the applications. For admission purposes, all the universities are constituted in a single space, called the Single Andalusian District, so that, in the pre-registration process, the student can choose degrees and centers from any of them under equal conditions.
Currently, Andalusian public universities are in the last phase of awarding free places for undergraduates for newly admitted students and the forecast is that the process will end in mid-October.
