hours of internships in schools
The Blanquerna methodology is based on seminars, a core element in achieving personalized and qualitative learning and holistic training that includes not only academic and professional competencies but also personal and human skills.
Seminars with small groups of 10-12 students facilitate interdisciplinary learning, intellectual and professional reflection, and customized learning. The faculty advisor collaborates in students' academic, personal and vocational orientation.
We have agreements with more than one thousand internship centers and a 95% job placement. Internships are carried out in pioneering and innovative organizations, institutions and schools that allow you to vindicate everything you have learned during the degree.

ApS (Learning and Service) is a complex activity that integrates service to the community with learning: one of the main ideas is that our students can learn by accompanying other social institutions and continue to grow in the acquisition of values and critical thinking. These are activities or projects in which learning is linked to performing a real service.
The subjects of the curriculum are approached from different teaching-learning methodologies, such as cooperative work, project work, case solving, challenges, systematic observation, debates and school work experience.

At Blanquerna-URL, we emphasize the importance of the Practicum and internships at external centers. That is why we have agreements with more than a thousand organizations and entities where you can apply your theoretical knowledge to the professional world and start focusing on your professional future based on the reality of the sector. Our curriculum provides for work experience in schools from the first year. The program includes:
In the Education degrees, there is a single internship agreement with the Department of Education that affects all public and subsidized schools in Catalonia, as well as services that depend on the Department.
Blanquerna-URL has alliances with more than a thousand schools and educational centers. Our students do internships at:
The objective of the bachelor's thesis is to evaluate the assimilation of the core skills acquired during the bachelor's degree. Essentially, it consists of writing a research project or designing an intervention program that allows the student to prove they have assimilated the degree's competences.
The thesis is written during the fourth academic year and has its own seminar. The student decides the topic and type of thesis. To write the thesis, the student can decide to do a research project or design an intervention program that will be tutored throughout the academic year by a professor-tutor specializing in that area.
The topics may be related to any of the areas of the profession and, where applicable, may also be linked to the center where the student is doing the internship or to the School's research groups.
The work will be conducted individually or in groups. Projects must be written in Catalan, Spanish, or English. In any case, the work will have to include a summary in English, Catalan, and Spanish.
The bachelor's degree thesis will last two semesters and will be supervised by a professor-advisor, both individually and in the Seminar space.
Within this space, the process carried out is shared in groups, guidelines are established, and the activity is organized. These Seminar sessions will be alternated with individualized follow-up/tutoring (in which each advisor will personally follow up on the thesis).
There will be three grading systems and assessment times:
The degree that enables you to exercise the regulated profession of a primary education teacher in public or private schools in the educational range from six to twelve years of age.
Head, technician and/or teacher in different centers, services and educational institutions, in interdisciplinary teams, in educational services and in resource centers.
Non-formal education in child care centers, hospital classrooms, penitentiary centers, media, adult education, family spaces or educational service companies.
Professional development in different areas and educational programs of the public administrations.
Our work doesn't finish the moment you graduate. The Alumni department will support you to enable us to achieve an employment rate of 90% of students in the first year after graduation

As the European Union points out, gender equality is not only a matter of social justice but also affects the results of teaching and research. Promoting gender equality in research and innovation is one of the European Commission's commitments, and it supports the explicit integration of a gender perspective in Horizon 2020 projects. However, this recommendation is often poorly understood and misapplied. Various documents are presented here with a view to contributing to a better understanding and application of the gender perspective in teaching and research.
