Objectives and Contextualisation

The External Practices aim to:

  • Give the student the opportunity to transfer both theoretical knowledge and practical content studied and to enter the professional world at the end of the program with a minimum of experience.
  • Allow entities to collaborate in the training of future professionals, contribute to realistically introduce the knowledge that the development of tasks requires in the training of students.
  • Perform training actions developed by a student within any public or private, national or international entity related to the sports world, with the objective of applying and complementing the acquired training,
  • Bring the student closer to the business reality in which he will practice as a professional
  • Help the student to develop skills that favor their incorporation into the labor market.
  • If the internships are carried out outside the Spanish state, the student must take out a practical and civil liability insurance that covers the entire internship stay. Said insurance must be sent to the internship department two weeks before the internship start date for its corresponding validation.

Likewise, all internship agreements must contain an official digital signature of both the student and the collaborating company.
