Find out about bachelor's degrees, postgraduate courses and all the educational courses offered by the UdG.
Teaching is concentrated in the faculties and schools, and the departments deal with research, which is also conducted by institutes and chairs, at the same time responsible for knowledge promotion.
Responsibility for monitoring and tutoring master’s students falls to the master’s coordinator and the academic tutors’ of the Master's Thesis. The tutoring of each student will take place at different times during the course:
The future students can request information about the master at the Technical Unit of Masters and to the coordinator of the study. They will provide information about studies in terms of their structure, learning objectives and professional prospects.
This tutorial takes place prior to enrolment (July or September). This one-on-one tutorial with the coordinator provides information on the general structure of the course, the features of the different training subjects and objectives. As applicable, information is also provided on student services and accommodation available at the UdG. The coordinator will provide information about whether the student needs additional support based on their prior knowledge, so that when choosing the speciality or the pathway the student is aware of the difficulties they may encounter and receive guidance that may help them. The student will also receive information on continuity regulations and the different scholarships he/she may apply for.
This information session is held during October and is for all students under the coordinator's guidance. At this session, information about work placements and the Master's thesis is given, in addition to advice on how to organise a work placement agreement and information on the selection process for the work placement offer and the assessment process for these subjects.
These are held at the moment the student joins the company, administrative body or research group to start their Master’s thesis. These meetings are daily or weekly, as specified in the convention agreed between the student and his/her tutor. In the first meeting, the objective and calendar of the Master’s thesis are defined and afterwards, a tutorial is held to discuss progress and lessons learned by the student. Students doing the TFM in an external entity will be assigned a tutor at that entity who will monitor then during their time at the institution/company. The student can also consult with the coordinator for any problems he/she incurs.
An occupational workshop is organised by the Careers Service each year to help with the search for work once the Master's Degree is complete.
