Required documents

a) Portfolio of academic and/or professional work demonstrating your potential for the desired discipline.

  • All the works shown in the portfolio must be of the authorship of each candidate, in case of plagiarism we will proceed to disqualification.
  • The portfolio must be anonymous, so the candidate's name must be omitted in any part of the portfolio (in another document we will have all the necessary information). During the selectivity process, the Organizing Committee will be in charge of sending to the Selectivity Committee all the documents without any personal information that identifies the candidate so that the selection is totally anonymous.
