More information

The 9 ECTS of the Practicum are grouped in the 4th year as they are related to the professional internship. It will be carried out over the two semesters in the subjects Practicum I (4.5 ECTS) and Practicum II (4.5 ECTS). During this time the student will be supervised by an external work placement tutor and by an academic tutor, who is responsible for the subject at the University. We recommend having passed at least 150 ECTS of the Syllabus in order to do the Practicum.

The offer of professional internships in the Degree in Psychology with a specialisation in Health Psychology is very extensive, as the University has collaboration agreements with both private and public entities in the different branches of Psychology.

By clicking on the link below, you will find the Quality Assurance System Procedure, which has the objective of establishing the system that will be applied for the organisation of external internships integrated in the Syllabus as well as for voluntary extracurricular internships. The procedure is applicable to the organisation of external placements during an academic year, and includes students, university services and institutions that are involved in these placements.

Practicum Agreements

The Undergraduate Dissertation is a compulsory subject that is required in order to obtain the degree in Psychology with a specialisation in Health Psychology; it consists of 9 ECTS and is taught in the 4th year of the degree course.

The subject consists of the development and presentation of a research study. The object of study of the dissertation will be linked to any of the knowledge areas of the degree, with the student having the possibility of choosing the line of research in which the project will be conducted.

It is an independent and personal project of the student, which will be carried out under the supervision of a tutor. In addition to individual supervision, there are also seminars or work sessions on specific techniques that help students complete the project adequately, led by the subject's teaching staff.

In this case, there is no need to establish a termination period (which is only contemplated in the case of old study plans).

The university has a Procedure for the Planning, Development and Termination of the Degree (PCL 05).

The purpose of this Internal Quality Assurance System Procedure is to establish the way in which the Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia (UCAM) guarantees the planning and development of its training programme, as well as the mechanisms to carry out the correct termination of the degree. This procedure is applicable to all the official degrees offered by the UCAM, as well as to the different university stakeholders (students, companies, administrative and service staff, teaching and research staff, public administration, society in general, etc.).

The Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia has drawn up the Regulations on Academic Credit Recognition and Transfer for Undergraduate and Master's Degree courses, which include the following basic principles, as established in the applicable legislation:

A) Recognition of credits of Core Courses

- Degrees belonging to the same branch of knowledge. At least 36 credits corresponding to core courses of that branch will be subject to recognition.

- Degrees belonging to a different branch of knowledge. The credits obtained in the core courses that belong to the branch of knowledge of the destination degree will be subject to recognition.

B) Recognition of other credits

The remaining credits may be recognised by the university, taking into account the suitability of the skills and knowledge associated with the other subjects taken by the student, or associated with previous accredited professional and work experience, and those foreseen in the syllabus or which are of a cross-disciplinary nature.

Credits corresponding to the Undergraduate Dissertation (Trabajo Fin de Grado) will not be eligible for recognition.

C) Recognition of socio-cultural activities

At least 6 credits will be recognised, depending on each syllabus, for participation in university activities of a cultural, sporting, student representative, charitable and cooperative nature. These types of credits are generally attributed to credits for optional subjects.

D) Subjects may not be partially acknowledged.
