Description of contents: programme

If there is no agreement and it is deemed convenient, its signature will be processed with the corresponding institution.
Learning activities and methodology
The skills, knowledge and attitudes will be acquired by students through internships in a company or organization for a certain period of time. The course will have the following development: 1) The academic tutor conducts specific informative sessions for the students on the subject, with the aim of informing them about the guidelines to follow. 2) The students seek their own internships (either through the Orientation and Employment Office/La Oficina de OrientaciĆ³n y Empleo, or through their own contacts) since, at the moment, the university does not make a prior selection of students to carry out internships for this degree. 3) Once the selection process has been completed and the Annex to the Agreement has been processed, the student will be incorporated to carry out internships for a minimum of 140 hours in a specific entity. 4) During their stay at the entity, the student may contact an academic tutor in case they need any type of support, especially if they have any questions or problems with the development of the internship. She will also have a tutor in the institution in order to direct, guide and supervise the activity of the student in the organization. 5) Finally, the student will write a report on the practices for evaluation and will ensure that the tutor in the institution sends the evaluation report directly to the academic tutor.
