Methodology

The TFG consists of carrying out a research project supervised by a tutor.

The program will be published in the Moodle classroom of the course calendar and the list of proposals for TFG conducted by the teaching staff. This list will consist of the teacher and the relationship of their proposals.

If the TFG is with data from a company or institution, students must notify the TFG Coordinator in order to study the viability of the work.

A first delivery space will open, where the student will have to upload the work feasibility request.

Once assigned the subject and the tutor/to, the student has to put in contact with the tutor/to set the first tutorship.

Tutor duties:

The tutor of the TFG will carry out a minimum of four tutorials during the course. In the initial tutoring the tutor will set the subject with the student and he/she will suggest a minimum of bibliography to start working.

The other two follow-up tutorials will serve to orienting the student's work. Finally, in the last tutorial, the tutor will suggest the final modifications.  

Students are advised to follow the FINAL thesis to submit the drafts indicated on the calendar in time to the tutor:

-Delivery 1: Introduction, objectives of the TFG, methodology and bibliographic references. The idea is that the first assignment will show the research carried out, the bibliography consulted and the approach that the students wants to the give.

-Delivery 2: First draft of the TFG where the part of development of the work is already in depth enough so that the tutor/can make the timely indications.

-Delivery 3: Completion of work completed so that the tutor can assess if the authorization for the formal delivery is pertinent.

The tutor will have this educational guide, available in the classroom Moodle of the subject and in the Web of the school, of a sheet of follow-up in which the development of tutorials will be recorded, the contents dealt with in them and the commitments assumed by the student. At the end of each session, the tutor and the student must sign the content and commitments adopted.

Students must attend the on-site sessions programmed at the time available on the website of the school. In these sessions it will focus on questions of methodology, editing, research and citations.

Annotation: Within the schedule set by the centre or degree programme, 15 minutes of one class will be reserved for students to evaluate their lecturers and their courses or modules through questionnaires.
