During the study of the applications received, the selection committee reserves the right to call for an interview with candidates residing in Spain or by means of a written questionnaire to those residing outside the country. As well as the verification of works and projects carried out.

The Masters selection committee meets weekly (as from December 2018), to evaluate the applications received in the last month and to grant acceptance responses. This means that it is possible that the available places are assigned in full before the deadline.

SELECTION CRITERIA

The selection committee of the master’s degree tries to choose a heterogeneous group, coming from different latitudes and different areas of Audiovisual Communication studies. However, in the various editions of the Master’s, it has been observed that more and more people from areas such as Fine Arts, Anthropology, Sociology, Political Science, History or Psychology are becoming interested in studies in the field of Audiovisual Communication and in the programme of studies offered by the Master’s Degree. The academic coordination is interested in the perspective and view that people from these areas may have on the different aspects of reality and has tried to establish selection criteria in such a way that each year students from different areas can participate to enrich the work at the content level.
