External curricular internships offer students the possibility of starting out in the labour market, carrying out tasks in some of the companies or institutions related to their studies. In this sense, the Vice-Dean of the degree, in collaboration with the Guidance and Employment Service, which manages the administrative part of the internships, organises a meeting at the beginning of the academic year where third and fourth year students are given guidance on the guidelines and the process for carrying them out. The university offers an job bank, and also has several agreements signed with companies related to Cultural Studies perspectives, but students are also encouraged to take the initiative to seek out and make contact with companies related to their field of interest. The Vice-Dean can advise and guide in this process, but the initiative and the search corresponds, in the first place and as we have pointed out, to the student, as this involves becoming familiar with the pathways to finding a job. Once contact has been established and an agreement has been reached with the company, the Guidance and Employment Service will take care of the administrative formalities, which are essential to validate the internship at academic level. In order for the 6 credits of the subject to be validated, the student will have to complete 150 hours in the company or institution, after which the evaluation will be carried out as indicated in this document.
Skills and learning outcomes
Description of contents: programme
The contents of internships depend on the type of activities and organization that are conducted and, in any case, its specification is subject to the prior approval of the training project by the academic tutor.
Learning activities and methodology
The student will have to complete 150 hours in the company or institution where the internship is carried out. Tutorials will also be offered by the internship tutor to guide the student, correspond with the company tutor and resolve any difficulties that may arise during the process.
Assessment System
At the end of their curricular internships, for a total of 150 hours, the internship tutor will send a report to the academic tutor, which can be uploaded to the platform where the Guidance and Employment Service manages these placements (and where there is a questionnaire in which the student's performance is scored), and also in the corresponding task in the global classroom. Likewise, the student will prepare a report according to the template available in the global classroom. The assessment of the company tutor will count for 80% of the mark (which corresponds to the percentage of continuous assessment), and the academic tutor will complete the mark with 20%, according to his/her own assessment of the student's report.

The course syllabus may change due academic events or other reasons.
