To apply for a place

Even if the student has contacted a company previously, all places will have to be processed through the internship platform and the student will not be able to start their placement until the education cooperation agreement has been signed and the student has completed enrolment. Anybody interested in completing placements in companies must obligatorily refer to requests for applications published by the Faculty of Law.

  1. The student receives an e-mail from the Faculty in which they are told the deadlines for the relevant call for applications.
  2. To consult the places offered by companies and the Office of the Dean, all you need to do is go to the website and use your code and password to access La Meva UdG (My UdG).
  3. Students can register as a candidate for placements they would like to complete.
  4. The company or institution can establish its own assessment criteria and interview candidates if required.
  5. The Faculty of Law selects students who opt for placements according to their academic record and the requested requirements
  6. The Faculty assigns a candidate to each available placement, attempting to satisfy the priorities of candidates and companies as far as possible.
  7. Students can find out what place that have got using the web platform.

Once a student has been assigned a placement:

Once placements have been agreed, the procedures to finalise the individual educational cooperation agreement and training project are begun.

1. The student contacts their tutor within the company and their academic tutor to specify the details of the placement assigned. If any information changes with respect to the information published in the proposal (e.g. placement start and end dates), the student must inform us by e-mail at practiquesempresa.dret@udg.edu

2. Should the student receive any financial grants:

3. Through the student, the centre will give the company: the educational cooperation agreement (three copies), the educational project (three copies) and the placement appraisal report (one copy). The student returns the documentation signed by the company to the centre.

4. Students are covered by school insurance, except for those over the age of 28, who will have to take out a supplementary insurance policy when they enrol on their subject.

5. School insurance only covers Spain. When travelling abroad, students must take out a voluntary travel policy and a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC - providing health care in countries in the European Community), or an E-AND-4 if travelling to Andorra.

Please note that placements cannot be carried out if the Educational Cooperation Agreement has not been signed and the student has not enrolled.

6. Writing the student’s placement report and handing it in to the teaching institution. This document must include a brief summary of the activities carried out and the results obtained. Likewise, it must also include the signature of the tutor at the company. The Faculty of Law will provide the student with report guidelines.

7. The company or institution sends the appraisal report to the centre.

8. The tutor at the University of Girona evaluates and grades the subject.

9. The student will be assessed with a number for external curricular placements and with pass/fail for extracurricular placements.

10. With the aim of continually improving the company or institution's placement offer, the Faculty of Law will prepare an internal follow-up report on the placement in which they ask the student to complete a questionnaire about the tasks and conditions under which they completed their placement.

  • This requires a minimum dedication of one full-time year or the equivalent, if it is part time, and the employment contract will have to valid when the application is submitted.
  • You will need to submit your application, which you will find attached, duly filled in. You can do this in the Procedures section of "La meva UdG". Choose the “Application to the administration” procedure and the “Practicals” sub-procedure. Applications must be accompanied by: employment contract, summary of contributory working life, certificate of tasks issued by the company’s manager, if necessary, and a description of the improvement project to be implemented as the placement report.
  • If the application is validated and therefore accepted, a tutor will then be assigned from the Faculty and the enrolment of the subject formalised with the Academic Secretary’s Office. 
  • The student will present the report, within the established time frame, which develops the project presented in the application.
