1. To be admitted in a doctoral program at the University of Alicante, it is necessary to fill in an electronic pre-registration form, available annually on the EDUA website.

2. Before starting the pre-registration process, it is advisable to consult the website of the chosen doctoral program in order to know the admission requirements demanded by the program.

3. The Academic Commissions (AC) are in charge of the admission process in the different doctoral programs.

4. The academic commissions decide annually the offer of places in every doctoral program according to the preconditions established in its Verified Memory. The commission may determine not to offer places when not having directors or tutors at any research line.

5. If the resolution is of “no admission”, in the computer application the reasons for the same will be detailed, having a calendar month to formulate an appeal before the AC; from the date of the resolution.



1. In parallel with the admission process carried out by the AC, the Doctoral School (EDUA) verifies that the documentation provided is the one requested in the pre-registration form.

2. Applicants with higher studies attained in countries different from the EHEA*, at the moment of pre-registration process should pay an administrative fee for the study of their documentation, (equivalence study). The price of the rate is fixed annually by the Government of the Generalitat Valencia, by Decree.

3. People who do not provide the documentation in the terms required in the access process, may rectify this incident within 15 calendar days, from EDUA communication or, exceptionally, within the period determined by EDUA according to the concurrent circumstances.

4. When the incidents detected have not been resolved in the form and time determined by EDUA, the originated file academic record will be closed, without further processing.

5. The Doctorate School will proceed to open academic records to those who have been admitted by the AC and have correctly provided the required documentation, sending them an email with instructions to complete the enrolment process.

When the result is "no admission" it is possible to consult the grounds in the available electronic application. It is possible to raise administrative appeal (recurso de alzada) against AC resolution, within a month since resolution date.
