Master in Molecular Biology and Biomedicine


Internship subjects, Practical Module and/or Master's Thesis.

To request a place for carrying out Internships (6 optional ECTS= 150hr) you will need to access the internships web platform 

If you have any inquiries about internships you can contact us by emailing to


Submission dates for company-placement reports

     The assessment call takes place in February
    (deadline for submitting reports - 12 January 2024).

     The assessment call takes place in June
    (deadline for submitting reports - 14 June 2024).

     The assessment call takes place in September
    (deadline for submitting reports - 3 September 2024).

How to submit the report (before the submission deadline for each call)

  • Students must upload the report on the internships web platform before the deadline for presenting the enrolment call and answering the feedback survey.
  • Students must remind their respective company and UdG academic tutors to assess their internships through the internship web platform.
  • To enable the UdG academic tutor to assess the work placement, the report must be previously uploaded onto the platform and the company tutor must have made their assessment of the work placement on the platform. 
  • Assessment: it is essential for intership reports to be presented so the subject can be approved. The interships tutor will marks the various skills acquired and the learning results under a heading. It will represent 100% of the final note of the subject.

Practicals and/or Master's Thesis module

  • Enter the TFGM  platform with your user name.
  • Sign up to the platform’s offers (prioritising by order of preference).
    The research group will make the selection and you will receive an email with the confirmation of assigned place and, where necessary (external groups in the UdG), you will receive the agreement through an e-mail from the Sciences secretary’s office
  • The agreement’s document will have to be signed by the tutor from the company or research group.

The Practical Module is assessed by the tutor using the rubric .

Access to the Master's Thesis regulations and the evaluation rubric.
