The evaluation will be made, once the stay in the means of communication, from the final report that the student presents to his tutor or academic tutor and the evaluation report provided by the company.

At the beginning or at the end of the stay in the communication company, it will be necessary for the students to do a tutorial with the tutor responsible for this subject.

As a measure to improve teacher follow-up, a reduced monthly report can be requested, which will also have an evaluative character and purpose, as well as other complementary documents, such as a brief file on the data, characteristics and circumstances of the internship position.

To pass this course, it is required to obtain a final grade equal to or greater than 5.

In order to be evaluated, students must use the document models (memory, company evaluation document, etc.) that each academic year indicates and / or expressly provide their academic tutor of the practicum. And they must also follow your specific instructions.

As a general rule, the final report and the evaluation document signed by the internship company must be delivered to the academic tutor within a maximum period of 10 calendar days from the last day of practice.

Students who do not make at least 2/3 of the hours set in the agreement, or / and who do not obtain an evaluation document from their tutor from the internship company, will be considered as not evaluable.

This subject, by its own configuration, is not recoverable.

This subject doesn't provide for the single assessment system.

For further information, students are recommended to consult the "Practicum Regulations" and "Final Practicum Report", available on the Faculty's website.



Review of notes:

The revision of notes is an automatic procedure that begins when the note is made public (either posted on the board installed next to the office of the responsible teacher or through some other digital or analogue means). From that moment, the students have a week to request, by e-mail, atutorial with the teacher responsible for this subject to analyze the final grade. After one week from the date of publication of a note, no request for note revision will be accepted.

This guide is a general regulatory framework for the practicum, but students should bear in mind that the academic tutors may change each semester and be different for the different enrolment groups. The assignment of tutors for each semester and enrolment group depends on the Departments with assigned teaching, which are responsible for publishing the names of the tutors for students to know. For this reason, as it is diverse and changing, the "teaching team" cannot be included in this annual guide.
