Below you will find information on how to register online for PhD studies at UAB. There are 6 simple steps:
Each year you have to register for the PhD, as long as you passed the annual progress review for the previous year and this appears on your academic transcript. (See your academic transcript). Remember that your user name is your NIU or NIA code (which are the same).
If you do not register during the established period it is assumed that you have left the PhD programme and you will forfeit your right to admission and to a place.
You can register by clicking on the following link:

You can check if your device settings is appropriate to formalize the self-enrollment by clicking this link.
Remember that for registration or any other online procedure with the UAB you can use any computer with an internet connection. You may experience problems connecting to external websites if you are using a corporate computer. Check that your workplace has computers with free website access. If you have any problems you can check the technical requirements at this link.
NEW! When you register on line you can also manage your direct debit payments from a Spanish or European bank account, or a bank payment card. Payment using a bank card can be made even if you are from outside the European Union. If you choose this option remember to choose the Point of Sale (POS) option on the fees payment screen.
Payment by bank transfer is not accepted.
If you are a PhD student from abroad and you have to renew your study stay authorization (TIE), you can still register on line. To renew your study stay authorization (TIE) you can present a printed copy of the online-registration document and a copy of proof of payment of the fees either by direct debit or by bank card.
If you have problems registering for the first year of the PhD in person, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org (closed in August) (if you send an email, you must identify yourself by indicating your ID / passport, NIU, name and surname).
At the end of the self-enrolment process, when you make the confirmation, you will obtain the supporting document of the registration that you can save on your computer or send it to you by email. You can present this document to third parties as proof of registration, together with proof of payment (direct debit charge or receipt of the card charge).
Once you have made the confirmation, the registration is recorded and you will not receive any other communication from the university as you have done it.
