External internships are understood to be the training action developed by students and supervised by the University with the aim of applying and complementing the knowledge acquired with academic training, bringing the student closer to the reality of the professional field in which will exercise its activity once graduated and develop skills that favor its incorporation into the labor market.

External internships can be developed in academic or administrative units of the same university or in collaborating entities, whether public or private entities, national or foreign. The Tecnocampus Foundation can also act as a recipient of internship students.

During their internship at the collaborating entity, students will carry out tasks specific to the professional field in which they will carry out their activity as graduates, with the aim of completing the theoretical and practical learning acquired with the their academic training and gain work experience at the levels to which, due to their degree, they can access.

Students will be subject to the schedule and rules set by the collaborating entity. The schedule established by the same must guarantee, in any case, the compatibility with the school schedule of the students and the necessary flexibility for the fulfillment of the obligations derived from the academic activity, formative and of representation and participation of the students to the University.

External academic practices can be curricular and extracurricular. Curricular practices are those listed in the study plan with the corresponding allocation of credits. Internships can only be considered curricular when the students are in 4th year and have registered the corresponding credits. 3rd year students who, at the time of starting their internship, have passed 50% of their degree credits (that is, who have at least 120 approved ECTS credits), can do extracurricular internships with academic treatment and register for the corresponding credits in 4th To do this, it is necessary to sign and return to the academic tutor a commitment document for registration of the practice subject in 4th year. This commitment document must be submitted before the start of the internship.


ECTS credits: total student working hours

A minimum of 4 ECTS credits and a maximum of 30 can be enrolled.

30 hours of dedication to external academic internships is equivalent to 1 ECTS credit.


In the framework of the new curricula adapted to the European Higher Education Area, special emphasis has been placed on the possibility for university students to do external internships, in order to achieve all the practical training necessary to complement the theoretical knowledge acquired through academic training, as well as acquiring the skills that prepare them for the exercise of professional activities.

External academic internships can be curricular and extracurricular.

Curricular practices are those that appear in the study plans with the corresponding allocation of credits and regardless of whether they are compulsory or optional. This means that they must register in advance, that they must have a tutor, and that they must be assessed and qualified.

Extracurricular practices are those that students can do on a voluntary basis during their studies and that are not part of the corresponding study plan. Students can start doing extracurricular practices when they have passed 60 ECTS of the degree (all 1st year approved).
