IMPORTANT NOTICE: INCLUSION IN THE SOCIAL SECURITY OF ALL STUDENTS WHO CARRY OUT EXTERNAL INTERNSHIP OR TRAINING INTERNSHIP INCLUDED IN TRAINING PROGRAMS

 

In accordance with the provisions of the Royal Decree-Law 2 / 2023, of March 16, from January 1, 2024 students of any degree who carry out external internships, paid or unpaid, they must be registered with Social Security.

The URJC will assume the management and cost of this measure in all curricular practices without financial support (unpaid).


What practices will begin to contribute to Social Security in 2024?

All curricular practices carried out by university students, both those associated with Bachelor's and Master's study plans, as well as those belonging to the University's own teachings.

IMPORTANT:
From January 2024, and as long as you do not have your NUSS, the University will not be able to authorize you to carry out internships.
Internships that have started in 2023, whose duration extends to 2024, They must also contribute starting January 1, 2024. The University has until March 31, 2024 to retroactively manage the registration of internships that take place between January and March 2024.

Students Mobility Programs

Students who carry out internships within the framework of mobility programs (Erasmus, SICUE, etc.) also have to apply for the NUSS and be registered with Social Security.

All host students at the URJC who carry out training practices in Spain must obtain the NUSS and be registered with Social Security.

Training practices in foreign entities, carried out outside of Spain, by students enrolled at the URJC, will not be subject to registration with Social Security.


What must be done to be registered with Social Security?

In order to be registered with Social Security, It is an essential condition to previously have a Social Security Number (NUSS), also called Affiliation Number (NAF). If you do not yet have your own NUSS (beneficiary number is not valid of their parents), the student must request it as soon as possible and notify the University using the procedure indicated below.

As long as the NUSS is not available, the University will not be able to authorize the carrying out of the internships.

Foreign students

What documentation do foreign students need to apply for their NUSS and be registered with Social Security?

According to the information received from the General Treasury of Social Security (TGSS), foreign students who do not have a NIE may apply for their NUSS and be registered with Social Security only with their passport. In any case, obtaining the NUSS will be the responsibility of each student and they must carry out the appropriate procedures to do so directly before the TGSS.
