Master’s Final Project (MFP)

Students must turn in a Master’s project, which can be a research study or an intervention that will be supervised by a PhD professor affiliated with the Master’s programme. This project must be publicly defended before a committee made up of PhD professors in the Master’s programme. On an exceptional basis and for reasons of specialisation, one of the committee members may come from outside the Master’s as long as they hold a doctorate.

Evaluation criteria 

The MFP is evaluated in two parts: the process and writing project evaluated by the supervisor (30%) and the written project and oral defence evaluated by the Evaluation Committee (70%). In order to evaluate the MFP, both parts must be passed, and the final mark will retain the percentages.
The criteria for evaluating the Master’s Final Project refer to the competences attained during the process of developing it, the final product and its defence. For this reason, the final evaluation will be the outcome of different partial evaluations:

  • Competences attained during the process of developing the project: The student’s persistence and perseverance in developing the project will be evaluated, along with their progress in acquiring the skills and attitudes needed for research and intervention. This assessment will be made by the project supervisor.
  • Product: The project will be assessed according to different aspects borne in mind by the majority of scholarly publications to ensure the coherence and quality of research or interventions. The project supervisor and members of the panel will issue a report prior to the defence which shall be submitted to the Post-Graduate Committee at least one week before the public defence of the project.
  • Competences achieved in the oral defence: The clarity, precision, originality and quality of the oral presentation of the project will be assessed depending on the conditions required by oral communication before a panel.

The final mark of the project will be issued by the Evaluation Committee according to the competences outlined in the curriculum.
