Procedures

Information about academic and administrative procedures

The UdG makes a series of electronic procedures available to students. These can be accessed via the "La meva UdG” intranet.

The catalogue of electronic procedures, which are conducted entirely online, is gradually being broadened to cover as many academic and administrative procedures as possible. At present, in the section on procedures related to each student's academic record you can ask for: an annulment of a call for a subject or of an entire enrolment, a Grade Certificate (CAP) or a replacement copy of the Degree Certificate, to communicate and/or modify bank data, for the documentation for legalisation to be prepared, recognised credit transfer, degree and Diploma Supplement certificates and/or an electronic copy, for a qualification to be processed by a consulate or an embassy.

For the procedures that are not yet available digitally, you may have to enquire at the Faculty as to how the procedure is carried out and to follow the explanatory models.

Formalities specific to the Area of Law and Economics Studies

Are you a student from a different university or faculty, or even from this faculty, but you wish to change your degree? Do you think that between your degree course and the one you wish to access you will have a total of at least 30 validated credits at the time of applying?

If so, you can request a direct transfer. For the 2019/2020 academic year }we offer:

Places: Two for each of the bachelor's degrees in the Faculty (Political and Administration Science - Criminology - Law) for students coming from Spanish studies and one place for students from abroad. No places are offered on the dual bachelor's degrees.

Application period: The regulations state the period 15 to 30 April. 

Documentation to be submitted: Detailed on the application form:

Fee: DECREE 131/2018, of 26 June of the Government of Catalonia (once the application is submitted, under no circumstances will the amount of the fees be returned).

All decisions on accepted or rejected applications will be published together and applicants will not be notified individually. Those interested must check the results directly. The decision will be made public on 31 May on the Faculty website.

Are you a bachelor's degree student at the Faculty and you would like to change degrees? 

If that is the case, you can request a change of study. This is a transfer among bachelor's degree studies with common curriculum sharing at least 30 credits in the first year. Students have to have obtain all the first year’s credits shared by both studies.

For the 2019/20 academic year we offer:

Places: Two for each of the bachelor's degrees at the Faculty (Political and Administration Sciences - Criminology - Law). No places are offered on the dual bachelor's degrees.

Period to submit the application and the documentation: 15 to 30 June.

The duly filled-in application form must be submitted in one of several ways:

  1. Reporting to the Faculty's Secretary's Office.
  2. For the purposes of authorising someone to carry out this formality, the authorisation must state what is being requested and come with a photocopy of the national IDs of the student and the person authorised.
  3. Send an email from the address the student has provided the UdG with as a contact address, to secretaria.dretieconomiques@udg.edu, attaching the filled in and signed application form (for these purposes it must be printed out, signed and scanned for emailing).

All decisions on accepted or rejected applications will be published together and applicants will not be notified individually. Those interested must check the results directly. The resolution will be published on 8 July on the Faculty's intranet (La meva UdG news).

If the resolution is positive, the Academic Secretary's Office will proceed to close the outgoing report and open the one for the new degree so that enrolment can be carried out correctly during the corresponding period. The academic fees in force will apply for the record transfer, studying the academic record (where appropriate) and enrolment of recognised credits.

Are you enrolled on a dual bachelor's degree and you want to drop one of the two subjects? 

Dual bachelor's degree students who want to change to one of the single subject degrees that comprise the dual degree just have to submit a request to officially drop one of the two subjects.

Application period and documentation to be submitted: 15 to 30 June.

Only the application form duly filled in must be submitted, in one of several ways:

  1. Reporting to the Faculty's Secretary's Office.
  2. For the purposes of authorising someone to carry out this formality, the authorisation must state what is being requested and come with a photocopy of the national IDs of the student and the person authorised.
  3. Send an email from the address the student has provided the UdG with as a contact address, to secretaria.dretieconomiques@udg.edu, attaching the filled in and signed application form (for these purposes it must be printed out, signed and scanned for emailing).

Before enrolling, the dual degree academic record will be closed and the one for the bachelor's degree the student wants to continue on will be opened. The student can then enrol on the single-subject bachelor’s degree.

Students who need just one more subject to graduate, apart from the bachelor's thesis, and who fulfil the requirements laid out in the Regulations governing assessment procedures and grading students can request curricular assessment or compensation for the subject to be shown as passed on their academic record.

Who can make this request?

Students who fulfil the following requirements:

  • Having only one subject pending, apart from the TFG/TFM.
  • The subject for which compensation is requested must represent fewer than or equal to 9 credits.
  • The last mark in that subject must be 4 or more.
  • The subject must be enrolled on and graded within the same year academic year in which compensation is requested.
  • In order to request compensation, the student must have enrolled on the bachelor's or master's thesis.

Documentation to submit:

Students who know the definitive grade (the exam record must already be closed) can start the procedure.

  • The application to request compensation must filled in and signed.
  • The person concerned can submit the application form by:
    • 1. Go to the Office of the Secretary of the Faculty.
    • 2. Authorise someone to carry out this procedure. The authorisation must state what is being requested and a photocopy of the national IDs of the student and the authorised person must also be submitted.
    • 3. Sending an email from the address the student has provided the UdG with as a contact address, to secretaria.dretieconomiques@udg.edu, attaching the filled in and signed application form (for these purposes it must be printed out, signed and scanned for emailing).

Resolution and notification:

Notifications of the resolutions are sent by email via La Meva UdG.

Students receive an email warning that they have received a notification. The notification must be accepted to be able to read its content and know the outcome of the resolution. If the response is positive, the Academic Office of the Secretary will proceed to incorporate the Compensated grade into the student’s academic record with a numeric value of 5. If the degree is completed with this compensation, the Academic Office of the Secretary will proceed with officially revising the academic record for the degree (see the corresponding procedure).

Article 3.2 of the Academic progress regulations in bachelor's degree studies specifies that students have three examination calls in which to pass each subject.

Article 3.2 of the Academic progress regulations in university master's degree studies at the University of Girona specifies that master's degree students have two examination calls in which to pass each subject.

If a student does not pass the subject in the available examination calls, they are able to request a final discretionary call.

To this effect, once the official records for each examination session have closed, an e-mail will be sent to all the affected students with the request application.

They must submit a duly completed application form, in one of several ways:

  1. Reporting to the Faculty's Secretary's Office.
  2. For the purposes of authorising someone to carry out this formality, the authorisation must state what is being requested and come with a photocopy of the national IDs of the student and the person authorised.
  3. Send an email from the address the student has provided the UdG with as a contact address, to secretaria.dretieconomiques@udg.edu, attaching the filled in and signed application form (for these purposes it must be printed out, signed and scanned for emailing).

Applications will be accepted until 13.09.2019.

The decision will be sent electronically.

Students will not be able to complete enrolment until they have received the decision.

When a basic and compulsory subject group is full, only in justified cases can a change of group be requested. Regarding the optional ones when they fill squares are not broadened.

Deadline for submitting applications: 20.09.2019

For group changes, the Faculty of Law Regulations on changing group for an enrolled subject, approved by Governing Committee 4/2019 of 13.06.2019, will apply.
