Professional and Technical Programs are higher education programs with a duration of four academic semesters (120 ECTS), including an internship for one academic semester (30 ECTS).
A Professional and Technical program confers the Professional and Technical Diploma and has a Level 5 classification in the National Qualifications Framework. A graduate of this program can also apply to IPVC licentiate degree programs without taking the entrance exams and receive partial accreditation for their training.
Those who are eligible to apply include:
- Graduates of a secondary education program or a legally equivalent qualification
- Holders of a specialist diploma in technology or of a professional and technical diploma
- Holders of a higher education degree who seek professional requalification
Those over 23 years old who have passed the special tests designed to assess their ability to attend higher education programs can also apply.
