Freezing and Reduction Registration: The Two Sides of the Coin

The Basque Government, in an astute and successful maneuver, has frozen the prices of the registration of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) for the next course. The amounts will range between 805 and 1.135 euros, figures that vary according to the nature of the degree. But ah, dear readers, this is just the beginning of a sophisticated strategy.

STEM Talents, in the Spotlight in their prices

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degrees will have a discount of 5%. And you will wonder, why? It is part of the Basque STEAM Strategy, which seeks to encourage scientific-technological vocations, and -I must emphasize it- give wings to Basque women so that they immerse themselves in these disciplines. Bravo!

Benevolence or Strategy in your license plates?

This noble gesture of freezing occurs after a 5% reduction last year, in a legal and favorable environment for public universities. Is this the secret formula for a quality and accessible education?

The Sales that Defined a Course

I vividly remember that the team at Jokin Bildarratz, in a stroke of genius, cut rates by a 4.7% for first degree enrollment. Qualifying master's degrees received even more generous treatment, with discounts of up 35.9%.

Where does the Past leave us in these rates?

The rates of the UPV / EHU accumulated seven years of freezing until in May 2020, the Ministry of Universities granted a period of three years to adjust rates to a maximum of 18,46 euros per ECTS. This meant a return to the rates of 2011 and a downward adjustment in ten autonomous communities.

Pre-registration period: Are you ready?

The UPV/EHU keeps its doors open for pre-registration until June 30. Is your moment! Last year, the university received 19.085 applications, an increase of 600 from the previous year. The bar is set high, my friends, with cutoff notes above 12 at 19 degrees and over 43 degrees topping out at 10.

New Academic Offers that Awaken the Intellectual Appetite

The UPV/EHU adds two new degrees to its range of academic opportunities. biomedical engineering or with a double degree in Primary Education and Early Childhood Education. Applause for the university that does not stop in its search for excellence.

Dual Training: A Seal of Quality

As if that were not enough, eleven degrees have the dual mention stamp awarded by the Ministry of Universities. A training that amalgamates university education and business experience. In addition, in the 2021-2022 academic year, 12.835 practices, 7% more than the previous year.

A Mosaic of Opportunities

The University of the Basque Country emerges as a bastion of education. With affordable prices, strategic discounts, and an enviable academic offer, the UPV/EHU is, without a doubt, a beacon of knowledge in a world that needs brilliant and committed minds more than ever.
