The teaching staff is known as Teaching and Research Staff (PDI) or academic staff. This group consists of the university's teaching staff, both permanent and temporary, in-house or associate researchers and instructors and research grant holders, who are considered trainee academic staff. The PDI can have different educational profiles depending on their situation:
Public Servant PDI:
Hired PDI (categories specific to the university area):
The teaching staff forms part of a department and perform their professional activities in the field of the teaching, research and university management. The department to which the professor is affiliated entrusts them with delivering education on the bachelor's or master's degrees taught at the FEP.
The main functions of the teaching staff are:
The departments are tasked with organising and carrying out research and with providing and managing teaching in their own areas of knowledge, in coordination with centres and faculties. They also provide support for their academic staff’s teaching and research activities and initiatives.
The three departments at the FEP are as follows:
The teaching staff at these departments mostly impart the FEP's bachelor's and master’s degrees, although they may also have educational roles on other degrees at other centres or faculties at the UdG. Likewise, teaching staff from other departments at the UdG also impart teaching on our bachelor's degrees and masters.
As a PDI, you will form part of a department and an area of knowledge. When you first join, the department will provide you a work space, access to a computer and all the support for you to perform your academic tasks.
The FEP delivers bachelor's and master's degree studies. Each degree has a coordinator, responsible for organising and coordinating the teaching with support from administrative staff.
On the web page of each one of the degrees, you can find general information and other data of interest in relation to access, professional prospects, continued study, subjects, calendars and timetables, practical work, bachelor's or master’s thesis, mobility, enrolment and other specific aspects.
