If this agreement does not exist it can be signed, if the university believes it is convenient.
Learning activities and methodology
The students will develop practical skills, knowledge, and attitudes through internships in a company or institution for a period of time. The course will have the following development: 1) The academic supervisor will brief the students through specific meetings at the beginning of the course, in order to inform them about the general guidelines. 2) The students look for their own internship since the university does not offer internships for this diploma for the time being. 3) After passing the selection process, students will join to perform a minimum of 280 hours of practice in a particular entity. 4) While in the company, the student will have an academic adviser to support any inconvenience or constraint the student may encounter. The student will also have a tutor in the company in order to lead, guide and supervise student activity in the company. At the endo of the internship, the external tutor will send an assessment report to the university. 5) Finally, the students will complete their own report in English on the internship for evaluation purposes. More detailed information on External Practices is available at the "Secretaría Virtual" of the "Aula Global"
