The bachelor's thesis, the step prior to the labor market

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 in creating a business or research project that allows the student to demonstrate the assimilation of skills inherent to the degree.

For the thesis, the student can make a business plan, a management project, a strategic plan or a research project, always centers on the sports management sector.

The different parts of the thesis will be carried out individually. The final document must be written in Catalan, Spanish, or English.

The development of the thesis will last two semesters and will be supervised by a professor-advisor, both individually and during the Seminar sessions.

Thus, there will be a space of two hours per week in which the teacher-advisor will hold group seminar sessions in order to share the process being conducted (set guidelines and organize the activity, choose the topic, provide documentation, plan the activities, etc.). These Seminar sessions will be alternated with individualized follow-up/tutoring (in which each tutor will personally follow up on the thesis).

There will be three grading systems and assessment times:

  • The assigned advisor will follow up on each assignment throughout the academic year. During this period, the student will have make partial submissions.
  • Presentation and public defense in front of an assessment committee, constituted by several professors of the department.
  • Thesis final proposal: will be corrected by the teacher-advisor.

Admissions calendar

The admissions process for the 2022-2023 academic year begins on November 3, 2021, and ends on June 28, 2022. From this date, pre-enrollment will remain open in those bachelor degrees that have openings available.

Admission pathways to the School's bachelor degree studies

  • Successfully completed High School Diploma and University Entrance Exams. Students can access all the bachelor degrees at the School from any of the High School Diploma options. Even so, from an academic standpoint, the recommended access profile for the bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Speech and Language Therapy are students coming from the field of health and social sciences; for bachelor's degree studies in Early Childhood Education, Primary Education, Physical Activity and Sports Sciences and Sports Management, a profile from the field of social sciences and humanities is recommended; however, under no circumstances are the others ruled out. For studies where it is necessary, it is required to have passed the Personal Aptitude Tests.

  • Foreign baccalaureate degree or high school diploma with the UNED credential. Students from education systems within the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), or those with whom the Spanish State has an agreement, and international baccalaureate degree holders, must apply to the Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia (UNED) to obtain the credential certifying that they meet the requirements to access university studies within the state education system. (They do not have to sit the University Entrance Exams, however, without the credential they will not be able to enroll in our bachelor degrees.) The educational systems that they can access through this channel are: Germany, Andorra, Austria, European Schools (European Baccalaureate), International Baccalaureate, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Romania, Sweden, Switzerland, China and Cyprus.

  • Convalidation of foreign Baccalaureate. Students from education systems outside the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) that do not have an agreement with the Spanish State will be able to access our bachelor degrees by presenting the convalidation of their Baccalaureate degree by the Ministry of Education of the Spanish State or the duly authorized Autonomous Communities, as is the case of the Generalitat de Catalunya. Proof of application for convalidation will be sufficient for students to enroll and begin taking a bachelor degree course, however full enrollment is conditional on convalidation being confirmed. Bear in mind that convalidating studies can take more than three months to complete, so this process should be done in parallel with the admissions process to our bachelor degrees. If the convalidation resolution is not obtained in the terms requested by the interested party, the results of any exams taken, or the enrollment made as a result thereof, are rendered null and void. Candidates who are nationals of a European Union country, or resident in Spain, and who come from non-European education systems that have not signed a reciprocity agreement with Spain, should contact the department of admissions.

  • Higher education courses. Be in possession of a vocational training advanced technician diploma, an advanced technician diploma in plastic arts and design or an advanced technician diploma in sports.

  • Mature student access for over 25s. All persons who are 25 years of age or older before October 1st of the calendar year in which the admission test is held may apply.

  • Access to the University by experience accreditation. Persons with professional and work experience pertinent to these studies but who do not hold an academic qualification that allows them to apply to the university through other pathways, and who are 40 years of age or older on October 1st of the academic year in which the course commences, can access bachelor degree studies.

  • Mature student access for over 45s. Persons over 45 years of age who do not hold an academic qualification that allows them to apply to the university through other pathways, and who cannot prove professional or work experience, can access bachelor degree studies through this pathway.

Stages of the admission process

The admission process for bachelor degree studies at the School is developed in 4 stages:

  1. Pre-enrollment
  2. Admission test
  3. Admission resolution
  4. Enrollment

Pre-enrollment

Pre-enrollment entitles you to take part in the admission process and can be done online or in person.

Online pre-enrollment can be accessed from the pre-enrollment button on each bachelor degree webpage, or directly from here.

  • Official medical certificate stating, verbatim, the following sentence: The applicant (name and surname) is able to perform physical tests of maximum effort.
  • Curriculum comprising training and sports practice following the indications stated in section 2.3.1 of this protocol.

In-person pre-enrollment can be done on-site at the School, by visiting the Student Information and Orientation Service (SIOE) and submitting the following:

  1. Provide the following documentation:

Upon pre-enrollment, the applicant will be given a pre-enrollment receipt stating the day, time and location of the admission test.

Admission test

Besides having the university entrance route, the School of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences (FPCEE) has its own admission tests suitable for the degrees offered and these are held once pre-enrollment is completed.

The planned schedule of FPCEE admission tests is:

  • Wednesday, January 12, at 6 p.m.
  • Monday, February 21, at 6 p.m.
  • Thursday, March 31, at 6 p.m.
  • Monday, May 23, at 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, June 29, at 6 p.m.

After this date, in the event that there are openings available in any bachelor degree course, new admission tests will be scheduled. The date of this test is assigned upon pre-enrollment and is recorded on the corresponding pre-enrollment receipt, which students can always consult in their document repository. Students who reside outside Catalonia and Andorra and have proven difficulties in taking the test in person on the assigned day may change the date or request to do so online.

The admission test for all the School's bachelor's degrees comprises:

  • General culture questionnaire
  • Verbal and non-verbal reasoning questionnaire
  • English language questionnaire
  • Attitudes and competences questionnaire

Furthermore, there is a custom test for pre-registrants to the bachelor's degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences described in the physical test protocol for access to the bachelor's degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences.

Note: The physical entrance exams for the bachelor's degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences and the double degree in Primary Education and Physical Activity and Sport Sciences for the 2022–2023 academic year are suspended as a result of the situation arising from the pandemic.

Note: In light of the theory-practical characteristics of the studies of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, the Assessment Committee may amend the protocol of the physical tests, in the event that the candidates prove a disability and request as such.

Note: As stated in the current legislation, for access to the School, and specifically to the studies of Physical Activity and Sports Sciences, applicants who are correctly accredited as high-level athletes (who appear on the lists prepared by Spain's Consejo Superior de Deportes (CSD) and published in the Official State Gazette) and high-performance athletes (certified by the CSD at the request of the corresponding federations), are excluded from the physical tests. Note: You can view the criteria and conditions in the case of highly dedicated athletes at: Blanquerna FPCEE High-level Sports performance criteria.

Admission resolution

A few days after taking the admission test, students will be informed, via email, of the admission resolution (suitable or not suitable). In the case of being admitted, in the same email they will be invited to enroll during the next enrollment call based on openings available and instructions on who to enroll will be provided.

The criterion used to call admitted students for enrollment in the two enrollment periods (conditional and final) is by order of pre-enrollment. It is important to bear in mind one timetable option may fill up during the (conditional) enrollment period. Admission will be confirmed as final if the student delivers the necessary documentation with their university admission test, entrance exam or CFGS, and completes final enrollment in July. Until registration is formalized, students will not be able to obtain a place or choose a timetable in degrees that have more than one.

Enrollment

Persons admitted for enrollment can choose between two options, depending on whether or not they already have an admission pathway:

  1. Conditional enrollment
    Possibility to enroll in the degree, before having passed access route.
    Enrollment will be conditional on the presentation of the corresponding admission pathway.
    This option secures the place and allows the student to choose their timetable, in the case of courses with morning and afternoon options, while openings are available.
    In the event that the student does not secure the admission pathway, the enrollment fee is refunded, and they lose their place and timetable selection. If openings remain vacant, applicants can stay on the waiting list until September and their enrollment fee will be held, but they will no longer have a preferential timetable choice.
    In the event of not obtaining the admission pathway, the fee paid will be refunded.
  2. Final enrollment
    Enrollment is confirmed as final when the student has completed the admission pathway.
    Upon enrollment, students are eligible to secure the openings and timetable options available.

Note: The criterion used to call admitted students for enrollment in the two enrollment periods (conditional and final) is by order of pre-enrollment. It is important to bear in mind one timetable option may fill up during the (conditional) enrollment period. Admission will be confirmed as final if the student delivers the necessary documentation with their university admission test, entrance exam or CFGS, and completes final enrollment in July.
Note: The required documentation must be uploaded through the document repository.

Studies can be paid upfront or in interest-free installments. If payment by installment is selected, upon enrollment the student will have two business days to pay 50% of the total cost of the enrolled credits, using their chosen form of payment; this payment will not be taken by direct debit. The remaining 50% is split into nine monthly installments, from October to June, payable by direct debit using the bank account number provided upon enrollment (see Instructions for sending the SEPA document signed at Blanquerna). Prices are updated each academic year.

Here you can find the general enrollment conditions for studies at the FPCEE.

Once payment is made, the corresponding receipt of enrollment can be viewed in the student's document repository and via the student's portal.

Gender perspective

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.
