Both requirements, activities report and tutor report, are mandatory to pass the course. The student's evaluation will be carried out by the tutor responsible for the company or organization in a questionnaire designed and sent by the University. Aspects such as the tasks performed by the student, their personal disposition, the personal relationships established with both users / clients, where appropriate, as with colleagues and with the staff working in the company, organization or institution, will be assessed and qualified, among others.
