Working methodology

The subject establishes expository class sessions based on the teacher’s explanation (3 hours per week) where the theoretical bases are established that the student will then have to develop in the practice sessions (2 fortnightly hours). In theory sessions will be held presentations of topics by the students which have been previously seen in theory. These presentations correspond to the carrying out individual work. Eventually, they will occur conferences of alumni who will explain the development of their project proposal, from ideation to final presentation.

4. Methodology: Techniques and Models of Analysis

Study tools and documentation

5. Global conception / development

Applied work processes and workflows (Audiovisual production phases, Briefing, Communication or marketing plan, Production dossier ...)

6. Feasibility and planning of the project

Project planning; Feasibility of the project: Economic study, financing plan, budget ...

7. Conclusions, References and Bibliographic Citations

Learning activities

Activity 1 - Class presentations and presentations (corresponds to the following learning outcomes: LO1, RA3, RA4, RA5, RA6):

The student, in different practical sessions, will have to present and defend in front of the professor the evolution of his personal project in the following categories, and in a temporary frame determined by the educational:

-Introduction and objectives of the project

-Previous study: analysis of references and background

-Theoretical framework and methodology

-Global conception / development of the subject

General considerations:

-For each activity, the teacher will report on the particular rules and conditions.

-Individual activities presuppose the student's commitment to carry them out individually.

-Any activity not delivered or presented will be considered scored with 0 points.

Evaluation system

Activities 1 and 3 - Exhibitions and presentations in class (assessment method "Participation in the activities proposed in the classroom")

-Introduction and objectives of the project: 10%

-Previous study: analysis of references and background: 10%

-Theoretical framework and methodology: 10%

-Global conception / development of the subject: 10%

Other activities in class - 10%


Activity 4 - Preparation and delivery of the Final Project (TF) ("Exam" evaluation method)

Writing and delivery of the complete project on the chosen topic: 50% of the final grade.


-It is essential to obtain a 5 out of 10 as a minimum grade in Activity 4 (the preliminary project of the TFG). Any work that does not reach 5 will not be averaged with the rest of the grades, will be considered not suitable and will mean the immediate suspension of the subject. This minimum mark regulation is also applicable to the retake call for the subject.

-Spelling and writing will be taken into account in the correction of the project. Poor wording and / or misspellings will result in significant penalties in the assessment.

- A 0 in any of the sections of the rubric (that is, a section not done) implies an automatic suspension of the preliminary project and therefore of the subject.

-If plagiarism is detected in any of the exercises or in Activity 4, the subject will be automatically suspended and the Final Work will be considered unfit.


Students repeating the subject

In the case of students who repeat the subject, two cases are considered:

- Students who repeat the subject having passed the TFG: they are exempt from doing the practicals and the final grade of the subject will correspond to the grade of the TFG.
- Students who repeat the subject i they do not have the TFG approved (they have not submitted it or they have suspended it): they are not exempt from doing the internship. They must repeat both the practices and the delivery of the preliminary project and the other possible deliveries.
