    These uses to mean (please, Spanish fellows, correct me if I am wrong):

TROncal: a subject which should be delivered in all deapartments which
    deliver the studies, and which all the students opting for a given
    degree must take. 

OBLigatoria (mandatory): a subject wich is set by a university as
    mandatory for all students pursuing a certain degree.

OPTativa (optional): a subject offered by the department(s) which also
    teach some degree and which can optionally be taken to fulfill the
    number of credits needed for that degree.  The TRO and
    OBL degrees are not enough to fill up the number of required

LIBre (Free, as in "Free Software" :-): similar to OPT, but issued a
    department different from the one some degree is offered by.  

OPE: No idea

    "Level" is right to me (but I am not an expert).

    Well, I guess was actually referring to the non-existence of the
requirement.  Just pointing out that we should probably want some
requirement, right?
