External placements

Curricular and extracurricular placements

Curricular placements are those that are configured as academic activities within the curriculum and entail passing the requirements to obtain a degree, in accordance with the provisions laid out in the corresponding curriculum. Curricular practicals are therefore an optional or compulsory module.

Extracurricular placements are those that do not form part of the curriculum and that students can carry out voluntarily during their education and that have the same purpose as curricular placements.

Students in the Faculty of Tourism have the chance to complete voluntary placements (extracurricular) throughout their studies. The maximum duration of the academic course is 750 hours. To guarantee education quality, placements are always validated by a professor in the Faculty before processing the agreement.

The student can opt to carry out curricular and extracurricular placements in the same academic year as long as the total of both placements does not exceed 750 hours.
For both curricular and extracurricular placements, you need to enrol using the University of Girona company placement platform.

The placement period is formalised through a cooperation agreement. The student remains covered by school insurance.
