Universidad Carlos III Application Deadline

What, Massey? Google maps shows that Getafe is only 15 kms (9 miles) from Madrid's center! I mean, that's kind of far, but hardly an hour away.

Also, the #12 subway has a stop right next to campus, apparently. The train route isn't very direct, though, so maybe that's why you say it takes an hour? (It makes kind of an L shape and you have to switch trains once, I would guess it takes 30-40 minutes.. )

Hi Sally, great to meet you. Could you have any clue about the Financial Analysis programme in UC3M? Do you know anyone alumni or prospectives?

hmm.. i did some more research.. and according to metromadrid.es it does take about an hour to get from the Juan de la Cierva metro stop (near Carlos III) to get into the city center via the subway system. But by car it's only about 20 minutes, according to Google maps.

Sorry for delay but I have not looked at this site for ages - I wrote the note about life at UC3M.

To get to the university there are a number of options, but it does not take an hour from Madrid - do not go there by metro or you will be travelling all day!!!

The train from Atocha is 20 minutes, so from Sol less than 22 minutes.

I used to get a bus from Plaza Eliptica in the south of Madrid which took 10 minutes. From my house near central Madrid that was a door to door journey of 30 minutes.

Hope this helps.

Yes Sally - Cercanias on the renfe, which means "local trains". You get line C3 to Parla. You can get it at Atocha, Sol, or if you live further north, from Nuevos Ministerios or Chamartin.

Alternatively get a bus 441 or 442 from Plaza Eliptica - for me this was the quickest but it depends where you are based in Madrid as Plaza Eliptica is south.
