Master's Final Project (MFP) 

Students must turn in the Master’s Final Project, which will be supervised by a PhD professor affiliated with the Master’s programme. This project is worth a total of 6 ECTS (equivalent to 48 hours of group sessions and other individual sessions). This project must be publicly defended before a committee made up of PhD professors in the Master’s programme. If the student chooses a research-based project, the members of the committee must be accredited by ANECA, AQU or an equivalent agency. It is recommended that one of the members of the committee come from outside the Master’s but be a member of some post-graduate programme in the Blanquerna-URL Faculty of Psychology, Education and Sport Sciences.

Defence of the project 

The student will have ten minutes to defend their project. They should prioritise the aspects from their project that they deem the most important and make a clear, precise and comprehensive summary of it. Once this presentation is over, the student must respond to any observations, comments and questions from the members of the panel. The Master’s project may be written in Catalan, Spanish or English.

Evaluation criteria

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. The project supervisor and the members of the panel will issue a report prior to the defence which will be submitted to the Post-Graduate Committee at least one week in advance.
  • 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.
