Instructions to take into account when enrolling for company work placements
The subject Company work placements is an optional subject worth 12 credits, which is taken in the first or second semester, primarily during the final years of a bachelor's degree. To be able to do a placement you need to have optional or recognised academic credits still pending. These do not need to be exactly 12 credits and optional credits (OP) and recognised academic credits (RA) can be combined. If, for example, a student only has 2 RA credits left, they can register for the work placement, as can those students who have just 6 OP credits pending, or those who have 6 OP and 4 RA... any combination is valid provided there are still some OP credits and/or RA credits pending; but anyway, the subject carries an academic and economic value of 12 credits.
Enrolment.There are three options when enrolling for placements:
1. With prior authorisation, which is the option we're proposing here. This is the main means of enrolment. Students who are currently pre-enrolled can register for the placement in July.
2. All other students can register for the placements when they secure a place. In this case, if any changes need to be made to subjects, this can be done provided the subjects we have to drop have no generated records.
3. Students who wish to request recognition of a professional activity to have all the credits to finish their degree should submit their application along with the required documentation before 20 December 2019. Beforehand they need to contact the Work Placement office (firstname.lastname@example.org) .
Students who have finished their degree and need to register all the credits to do their Bachelor's thesis (TFG) and the credits to obtain the Bachelor's degree or grant, must enrol on all the optional credits needed in July, which can then be replaced when they are assigned a Work Placement, provided that the certificates for these optional subjects have not been generated.
Instead, optional credits will be exchanged for placements once the student selection period has ended and a place obtained for the placement.
Finally, it should be noted that if placements take place during the summer, the credits will not be included in the maximum of 75 that can be enrolled according to the Academic Progress Regulations. In this case this maximum can be exceeded but if you want to do them in the summer we will be able to register them without any problem once they have been awarded.
