Rules on internships for bachelor degrees in Psychology, Speech and Language Therapy and Sport and Exercise Science
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.
To write the thesis, the student can decide to do a research project or design an intervention program, and the subjects may be related to any of the areas of the profession or make reference to it.
The work will be conducted individually. They 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 through 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 advisor will personally follow up on the thesis).
There will be three assessment systems and times:
The double bachelor's degree in SES and Physiotherapy provides a unique professional profile, focused on the field of sport and health. The skills acquired foster a professional praxis with a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach, providing better quality care to people who require physical-activity-based care to improve their health or as prevention, whether they are children, adults or elderly people. This profile is particularly appealing for companies to work in:
In social and health centers such as day centers, nursing homes and long-stay centers; rehabilitation centers; private centers, etc.
Sports facilities and centers, sporting events, sports equipment in nature, sporting goods design industry, sports federations, fitness centers, physical activity prescription centers.
Secondary education and vocational training services in special education centers.

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.
There are a number of different pathways for students to access a bachelor degree at the School:
THIS INFORMATION ON CREDIT RECOGNITION IS STATED SEPARATELY FOR EACH OF THE THREE BACHELOR DEGREES IN THE STUDENT GUIDE:
The admission process for bachelor degree studies at the School is developed in 4 stages:
Pre-enrollment entitles you to take part in the admission process and can be done virtually or in person.
Online pre-enrollment can be accessed from the pre-enrollment button on each bachelor degree webpage, or directly from here. You need to:
Upon pre-enrollment, the applicant will be given a pre-enrollment receipt stating the day, time and location of the admission test.
Note: For courses with more than one timetable option (morning or afternoon), admission is granted by order of conditional enrollment and persons completing enrollment in July, if a timetable choice is still available, must bear in mind that enrollment will be carried out by order of pre-enrollment.
In-person pre-enrollment can be done on-site at the School, by visiting the Prospective Students Service and submitting the following:
The Blanquerna School of Health Sciences has its own admission tests suitable for the degrees offered and these are held once pre-enrollment is completed. Applicants who pass the admission tests will be able to access enrollment, which remains conditional upon passing the PAU exam or completing their higher education training course. The test will be online.
The planned schedule of admission tests for the 2022-2023 academic year is:
Tuesday, August 30, 2022, 11 a.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.
The test consists of two instruments that aim to establish a numerical order of students according to an admission process aimed at their future studies, and can never be understood as a test that measures the intellectual capacity of prospective students. It is a question of having an individual profile of some cognitive functions, professional interests and preferences, personal characteristics and aptitudes to carry out the task corresponding to the chosen degree, and of the motivations of the candidate to pursue our studies.
Test 1: Questionnaire on personal values, goals and objectives, order and method, practicality, and decision-making.
Test 2: Expression and creation. Test 2 aims to assess the student's written communication skills (ability to analyze, synthesize, essay write...), and so they are given a number of topics to develop.
The prospective student must log in to take the online admission test on the date and time assigned at the time of pre-enrollment, and must show their ID card as identification. The approximate duration of the tests is 1 - 1.30 hrs. In the event that special educational adaptations are required (dyslexia, ADHD...), this must be stated at pre-enrollment, on the statistical data screen, and supporting documentation must be provided.
A few days after taking the admission test, students of Physiotherapy and Human Nutrition and Dietetics will be informed, via email, of the admission resolution. After the admission test, applicants for the bachelor degree in Nursing will receive an email informing them if they are apt or not apt. If they are apt, they must send us their Baccalaureate or CFGS grade point average as soon as they have it. At the beginning of June, places will be allocated, and they will be notified by email whether they have been admitted or not. In the case of admitted students, 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.
Persons admitted for enrollment can choose between two options, depending on whether or not they already have a university admission pathway:
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.
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. Prices are updated each academic year. Here you can find the general enrollment conditions for studies at the School of Health Sciences.
For the foreign student admission process, the following considerations and requirements must be taken into account in accordance with the prevailing regulations.
Students 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 (UNED Credential). 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 education systems that can be accessed through this pathway 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.
Can 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. For any doubts or queries about the pre-enrollment or enrollment process, please contact the admissions department/academic secretary: [email protected]
Studies are paid in installments and without any interest. At the time of registration, 50% of the total cost of the enrolled credits is paid*; the remaining 50% is split into nine monthly installments (from October to June) by direct debit.

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.
Excellence is the future
