Enrolment for New Students 2023-2024

To enrol at ESCI-UPF, you need to have received confirmation from the Catalan Government’s University Access Orientation Office or UPF that you have been awarded a place on the Bachelor’s Degree in International Business and Marketing.

Before you enrol, please check that you've been given a place on the accesnet portal. (July 12, 2023)

You need to enrol at ESCI-UPF in person. If you cannot come yourself, you may authorise someone to come in your place; this person should bring their ID (original and photocopy), an authorisation signed by you and all the documentation and information required to carry out the enrolment process.


  • First preference: from July 14 to 19, 2023
  • Definitive allocation: July 19, 2023

Once you have been awarded a place, check the date and time you have been assigned to enrol and enter your ID and your birthdate (ddmmyyyy) as password here to see details of your appointment.

If you do not enrol on your assigned date and time, you will lose your place.

Certifying proficiency in a third language

It is important for you to certify your proficiency in a third language and to have this information included on your academic transcript and European Diploma Supplement. With this in mind, ESCI-UPF organises (and covers the cost of) a Language Proficiency Certifying Exam (PCCL) before the start of term for all new students.


The Language Proficiency Certifying Exam (PCCL) is designed and organised by the UPF language programme. It is mandatory for all new students, unless you can provide an English Proficiency Certificate at level C1 or higher, in which case you should download and complete the Request to certify proficiency in a third language and hand it in on the day you enrol together with your English Proficiency Certificate (original and photocopy).


  • Mandatory introductory sessions: from September 7 to 15, 2023
  • PCCL exams: September 13, 2023
  • Regular classes start: September 18, 2023

  • 50% of tuition fees upon enrolment and the remaining 50% in early February
