Degree in Philosophy organised alongside the Saint Theresa of Jesus Catholic University of Ávila

Why study at UAO CEU?

1. Double Degree in Psychology and Philosophy

New double degree in Psychology and Philosophy that allows students to earn two official degrees. 

2. Employability 

93.3 % of our Psychology students find employment at the end of their studies, 10 percentage points above the average for Catalan universities (AQU 2020 Jobs Survey)

3. Methodology

In the degree of Psychology, our teaching model is based on practical, personalised training, linking theory with professional practice, through placements at companies, schools, hospitals and day centres, along with practical workshops and seminars. We have more than 15 years’ experience offering professional education in psychology.

We promote an active, enterprising spirit in students, such as through the creation of the Psykhé Group. This group organises the Annual Conference of Students of Psychology, in which students present a project or study they have carried out in a specific area in the course of their degree. It reinforces early research activity and provides valuable experience in public presentations.

The degree in Philosophy can be taken in person or remotely. Students have the option of attending classes two afternoons a week at Abat Oliba CEU University or studying the course from anywhere in the world thanks to our online teaching platform. This format means the degree can be combined with other studies or made to fit around your job. 

3. Comprehensive options

Philosophy: Students can continue their studies after the undergraduate degree by taking the Official Master's Degree in Humanistic and Social Studies, a cross-disciplinary programme aimed at helping students access a PhD programme in the field of humanities and the social sciences.
Psychology: The Official Master's Degree in General Health Psychology enables students to practise the profession, whether they are self-employed or employed by others in the healthcare sector.


The Degree in Philosophy is organised by UAO CEU and the Saint Theresa of Jesus Catholic University of Ávila (UCAV), a Catholic university located in Ávila (Castilla y León). This university is well known for their experience in offering distance learning.

UCAV has three faculties: Social and Legal Sciences, Sciences and Arts, and Health Sciences.

4. Therapeutic Psychological Care Unit

Third- and fourth-year Psychology students attend master classes in Psychopathology as part of the Master’s Degree in General Health Psychology, taught at the Therapeutic Care Unit run by UAO CEU at the Sagrat Cor University Hospital - Quirónsalud Group, allowing them to experience real therapeutic sessions with patients.

5. Teaching staff

More than 70% of the teaching staff of our Degree in Psychology are professionally active, specialising in the subject they teach.

€ 10,786*

*Price for the 2024-25 academic year

Tuition fees correspond, solely and exclusively, to the provision of teaching as part of the programme enrolled on, and this is the only service offered in exchange for the payment of those fees. By enrolling, the student accepts that decisions made by the competent authorities may, directly or indirectly, render it necessary to carry out teaching, tutoring, work placements or assessment tests either in person or via distance learning.

The student accepts that they remain obliged to pay any such fees in full even if, for reasons beyond the control of the University, some of the educational activities included in the degree cannot be carried out as initially provided for in the course guides at the beginning of the academic year. If restrictions are part in place, the University will provide the student with a guarantee that the activity will be rescheduled when possible, taking into consideration the interests of the student and any other applicable academic criteria.


Once you've been accepted on the course, you can reserve your place at Abat Oliba CEU University, which guarantees you a place on the course, before you pass the “selectivity” university entrance exam* or other entry requirements. You can do this by making a payment of €1500 (which will be deducted from the total price of the course).

*Reservation of your place will be effective exclusively for the ordinary examination period (June) of the Baccalaureate University Entrance exam. Candidates who do not pass the Baccalaureate University Entrance exam or other access requirements for similar studies in the ordinary period (June), and have paid the Place Reservation Fee, will have priority in the September enrolment if the University has places available in the degree course requested.

Cancelling your place after reservation: students have until 21 June to cancel their reserved place. This means you can book now and cancel if your circumstances change later on.**
