The External Practices subject is a curricular subject whose main objective is to promote a comprehensive training of the student through the practical application of the knowledge acquired during the Master's degree, which facilitates direct contact with the professional activity and the opportunity to join the professional world with a minimum of experience. All practices are designed so that the students who participate in them acquire professional experience in real situations and conditions, applying the knowledge, skills and attitudes that are acquired in the training processes throughout the degree. The internships represent a decisive opportunity for the personal development and professional future of the students.
Internships are activities carried out by the student in companies, institutions and organizations; that is, in centers outside the university premises, which aim to enrich and complement their university education, while providing them with a deeper knowledge about the skills they will need in the future.
The External Practices subject will consist of two phases.
First. Completion of the internship period that offers professional experience related to any of the profiles that are expressed in the Verification Report of the degree.
Second. Preparation of memory.

CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE MINISTRY OF EDUCATION COURSE 2022/2023
El scholarship application deadline expands until the 16 of May of 2022. The student must apply for the scholarship even without being enrolled in the next course and even without knowing how many subjects he is going to pass in the current course.
Why is the application deadline advanced?
This way you will know if you meet the economic requirements or not before seeing what you are going to study.
For which studies can you apply for a scholarship?
You can apply for a scholarship if you think you are going to enroll in the 2022-2023 academic year at any of the following levels:
- university education for bachelor's and master's degrees.
Not included in this call for scholarships:
- Third cycle studies or doctorate
- Specialization studies
- University titles.
Indefinite subjects at the URJC (TFG, TFM, RAC, Modern Language and External Practices)
In the event that a student has enrolled in the subject of indefinite duration in an academic year and has not been examined, he or she must renew enrollment for successive courses, paying only the secretarial fees and school insurance, if applicable. The student who fails must re-enroll the subject as a second enrollment (third or fourth).
How do Indefinite Subjects affect the Ministry Scholarship?
Students taking indefinite courses (TFG, TFM, RAC, Modern Language and External Practices) They should know that, if you have not applied or they have not graded it in the current course and even if you do not have to pay the registration fee for said subject again in the following course, those credits would count as not passed for the ministry's scholarships.
Example: in the case of Modern Language, the student who has registered for the subject and who has some specific particularity (for example, who is an applicant for the MEC Scholarship) will have to take into account the requirements of said particularity when applying. decide when to enroll in a course of the subject (for example, if the MEC scholarship asks for a % of credits passed over the credits enrolled and the student enrolls but does not enroll in a group, the credits will appear for scholarship purposes as credits enrolled , but not yet passed in that academic year and this may harm you when obtaining said scholarship).
Cancellation, extension or modification of registration for scholarship applicants at the URJC
Those students who have applied for a scholarship must take into account that they can only request cancellation and/or change of subjects, which implies a reduction in credits, within the first set deadline. In the second term they will not be able to request a reduction in the number of credits initially registered.
Change of subjects: All those students who have applied for a Scholarship from the Ministry of Education must bear in mind that, in the second period of modification, they can only request the change between subjects with the same or higher number of credits, in no case lower.
Cancellation of subjects: Those who wish to request the cancellation of subjects already enrolled must check said subjects. All those students who have applied for a Scholarship from the Ministry of Education must take into account that, in the second modification period, it is not possible to apply the cancellation of subjects.
Extension of subjects: The student who wishes to request the extension of subjects in his registration must check said subjects. All those who have applied for a Scholarship from the Ministry of Education must take into account that, in the second modification period, it is possible to apply the extension of subjects.

How much money can you receive for your scholarship
The scholarship is the sum of different components. To calculate how much corresponds to you, you must bear in mind that the scholarship consists of a fixed amount of money (fixed amounts) and a variable amount of money (variable amount).
It is called a fixed amount because, unlike the variable amount, it is a fixed amount established each year in the call. If you meet all the requirements (general, economic and academic), you can get the sum of all the amounts that we explain below:
AMOUNT IN EUROS
It will include the amount of the credits for which you enroll for the first time
For family income
For change of residence during the school year
for academic excellence
50 € - 125 €
Take into account the following remarks:
- The price per credit will be the official price set in the 2022/2023 academic year. for academic services depending on the different degrees and universities.
- The scholarship does not cover second or subsequent registrations: only the price of the credits in which you enroll for the first time.
- It only covers the minimum required credits to obtain the degree.
- If you study or are going to study in a center attached to the URJC, the scholarship covers only the public price set by the Decree on Public Prices of the Community of Madrid.
Once we have assigned the fixed amount scholarships to all the people who have requested it and who meet the requirements, we distribute the amount that is left over from the total budget. We do this by means of a mathematical distribution formula that weights, that is, measures, the average grade of your file and your per capita family income.
In any case, the variable amount will be the minimum (60 €) if you enroll for a number of credits between 30 and 59 (partial enrollment) or if you take a double degree, in half of the credits that correspond to the full enrollment

The renewal of the accreditation of official bachelor's and master's degrees is organized in three phases: self-assessment report, external visit and final assessment.
In the first phase, the university describes and assesses the status of the degree with respect to the established criteria and guidelines. The result is the Self-Assessment Report (IA) that is presented. The second and third phases are carried out by a group of evaluators external to the evaluated title.”
