UPV Regulations and recognition tables


After having completed registration within the deadline established on the academic calendar, the student must complete a request for credit recognition via their intranet.

Credits earned from the following may be recognised:

  1. Official university studies, from the same or another university
  2. Official Higher Education (High-Level Vocational Training)
  3. Non-Official University Studies (own degrees)
  4. Accredited work and professional experience, as long as said experience is related to the skills inherent in the official degree you wish to take.


Credits earned for any original subject/course may be recognised taking into account the relevance between the skills, contents, and workload associated with the subjects/courses originally passed by the student, and that anticipated for the study plan for the future desired degree. In this sense the minimum equivalence required between past and future studies for gaining recognition is 75%.

End of Degree Projects cannot be used for credit recognition.

Documentation required::

The documentation used to accredit any credits earned must be electronically added to the request and the original and a photocopy must be submitted to the secretary’s office once the request has been made on the intranet in order to process the confirmation:

  2. Accreditation of studies in High-Level Vocational Training (CFGS): academic certificate.
  3. Accreditation of passing non-official university studies university own degrees from UPV or other universities): academic certificate issued by the university’s authorised body, and (if applicable) the person in charge of the own degree. Furthermore, the course programme showing passed courses must be provided for credit recognition.


The Academic Degree Committee (CAT) for the Degree in Computer Engineering (II) shall review the recognition of credits as long as they are related to the skills inherent to the degree.
It must provide reliable and sufficient accreditation, having had the work experience in their job for at least 3 months, performing equivalent or higher functions than those for which they are qualified by the degree and having acquired the skills associated to the courses to be recognised.
The recognition for accredited professional or work experience shall be 10 ECTS credits for every year worked.
