No prior specific training is required for entry to the Degree course in Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, although most students expressing an interest in taking the entrance exams must demonstrate academic ability as well as practical skills and capabilities.

Normally the student who enrols at the ESCRBCC is one who has passed the Baccalaureate in Arts (plastic arts route) or Humanities and Social Sciences, but it should also be pointed out that each year there are students gaining admission with a Baccalaureate in Science and Technology. In fact, preservation and restoration is based on several disciplines (humanities, science and technology and plastic arts), which makes it a truly interdisciplinary field. So, the student who enrols at the ESCRBCC can have studied any subjects taught in the Baccalaureate, as well as degree courses in plastic arts and design.

The student must show an initial aptitude for plastic arts, such as the use of color and manual ability; knowledge of subjects related to the field of Humanities, such as history and art history, Science and Technology related subjects including a basic knowledge of biology, physics and chemistry, as well as having an interest in new technologies.

It is recommended that the student has an interest in different cultures, both present day and ancient, as well as having absolute respect for artistic and cultural heritage.
