Prior to enrolment
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 may need additional support based on his/her prior knowledge so that, when choosing subjects, he/she is aware of the difficulties that may be encountered and receive orientation that may help them. The student will also receive information on continuity regulations and the different scholarships he/she may apply for.
This informative session is held during the month of October for all students under the guidance of the coordinator, where information about practical classes is offered (Master's thesis, practical module and work placements), how to conclude the practical classes agreement and the selection process for practical classes and the assessment process for these subjects. The student is provided with information about Master’s thesis projects offered, the corresponding tutor, in each case, and the techniques that will be learned. This information will also be accessible on the web page for the corresponding master's degree.
Tutorials with the tutor of practical classes
They are held in a laboratory starting when the student joins a laboratory to complete his/her 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. If the student carries out the Practical Module at a different laboratory to the one at which he/she completes his/her Master’s Thesis, the Practical Module tutor will perform the student follow-up during his/her time at the laboratory. Students carrying out practical classes will be assigned a tutor who will perform the follow up during his/her 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.
