Until recently most Spanish degree courses lasted five years. Students would be awarded a diplomatura (general degree) if they completed three years of study, and they would get their licenciatura (honours degree) after another two years. Now, under new planes de estudio, or curricula, licenciaturas take four years. The first two years are referred to as the primer ciclo and the final two years as the segundo ciclo.
