Basic information

2022-2023 programme with recognition of 1 ECTS credit (bachelor's degree studies)

Enrolment from Monday, 4 July 2022

Activities and studies can be carried out with the Sports Service under the Bologna plan’s curriculum, with a maximum of 6 ECTS for bachelor's-degree studies.

To obtain recognition of at least 1 ECTS, it is possible to do the following subjects:

L) Introduction to sport and health. They are semester-long subjects which are evaluated based on compulsory attendance on the course with a lecturer and an individual evaluation based on the sports practice proposed for each academic year. For the 2022-2023 course, around 15 different subjects have been scheduled. The programme is evolving and new subjects can be added during the year. 

II) Sports and leisure practice. It consists of taking part in activities programmed by the Sports Service like university contests, leisure activities, attendance at sports and health lectures, sports cinema forums, voluntary work at sports seminars, etc.

Participation in these activities is appraised with POINTS indicated for each activity detailed on the contests score board published on our website. When students have accumulated 40 points combining any of the activities and/or contests of the programme, they have to register and pay the registration free for ‘Sports and leisure practice’ and they will obtain 1 ECTS.

Alert! Enrolment on "Sport and leisure practice" costs €29. 

I) Enrolment for ‘Introduction to sport and health’ starts on Thursday, 4 July 2022 at 9 am only through the Sports Service web page. To access the system you will need the user name and the password that you use to access all the web applications of the UdG (the academic record, p e). Registration ends when all the places have been filled or when the course starts.

Remember that places may become free as long as the subject has not started, so registration will remain open. During this period, the Sports Service does not control the process as it is the computer system that frees up a place when someone cancels their place.

When the registration period ends, there will be a waiting list. If there are no places free on the activity you are interested in, write to and give your details (name and surnames, UdG code and telephone number) so you can be contacted if a place becomes available on one of the activities you would like to do before the start of the activity.

II) Registration for ‘Sports and leisure practice’ will start on 7 November and remain open during the entire course (until 30 September of every course). The enrolment has to be made once the 40 points have been achieved, the deadline for achieving this total is the 24th of September of each academic year.To access the system, you will need the username and password used to access all the web applications of the UdG (e.g. the academic record).

If at the time of registration you wish to benefit from the special price for members, become a member at the time of academic registration or in the days prior to registration so that the system applies the discounted price to the credits.

Attention: if you do not have user name or password yet, address yourself to the computer operator of your centre.
