Previous years


Las prácticas contribuyen a la formación integral de los estudiantes universitarios y facilitan el conocimiento de una metodología de trabajo adecuada a la realidad profesional. De este modo, ofrecen una experiencia práctica que permite la inserción de los futuros titulados en el mercado laboral.

Las prácticas son tutorizadas y se evalúan. Por lo tanto constan al expediente académico del estudiante. Además, se pueden hacer prácticas extracurriculares de un máximo de 500 horas, que se pueden prorrogar hasta 900 horas. Tanto en cuanto a las prácticas curriculares como las extracurriculares, hace falta la formalización previa de un convenio de cooperación educativa con la entidad colaboradora donde se tienen que hacer las prácticas.
