The university has a clear and efficient Admission Process for each of the programs it offers. Thus, each doctoral program has its own admission system and calendar.
How can I apply for a doctoral degree at the Catholic University of Chile?
To apply to a Doctoral Program, you must have the academic degrees of Bachelor (or equivalent) and/or Master.
Foreign academic degrees
In case of having academic degrees of foreign origin, these must be equivalent to those mentioned above, in accordance with the International Classification of Education (ISCED-UNESCO) and in force on the date of application.
If you are a foreigner student, the certificates must be legalized by the Chilean Consulate in your country of origin. Documents issued in countries subscribed to the Apostille Convention do not require legalization; this subscription is enough to carry out the procedure. If your country of origin is not part of the Apostille Convention, you will need to legalize the document at the Chilean Consulate in your country of origin.
