In postgraduate studies, which have been reduced to Masters, the University of Alcalá has very interesting programmes in almost all the branches we have mentioned above. In fact, they have bilingual resources and research sufficiency in most of them, so it is a very good option when considering another level of studies.

As for doctoral programs, they are all very extensive, so it is more than certain that we will find the option that best suits us. Especially in view of the European doctorate, since the University of Alcalá more than meets the requirements that are needed, such as having dealt with the subject of the thesis in a language other than the native language, and in addition, it is proper to the European Union.

Other types of studies that can be given at this university are: preparation courses for access to the test for people over 25 and 45 years old. Language courses, in which the preparation for English and German stand out, although they have other less common languages such as Japanese.

And as for the most experienced preparation, they offer courses throughout the year, but more specifically in summer, where we can specialize for a future master or doctorate with very good activities for our preparation.
