Enrolment and tutoring

Enrolment

The enrolment at the Master’s Degree final project should be made in the deadline established in the academic calendar.

The enrolment at the Master’s Degree final project entitles students to two official examination calls during the academic year.

The tuition fees, in any case, will be “without teaching”, although the studies are being phased out.

Tutoring

The Master’s Degree final projects should have at least one supervisor  who should supervise the work of students.

For tutoring the Master’s Degree final projects the Doctor qualification is needed except if the Postgraduate Studies Committee authorises the contrary.

If the Master’s Degree final project is developed in an institution, organisation or company separated from the University of Valencia an external co-supervisor should be appointed. The co-supervisor should collaborate with the academic supervisor in the definition of the content of the Master’s Degree final project and its development.

In the case of inter-university master’s degrees leading to the completion of a joint degree, any Doctor of the participating universities could be appointed as supervisor.

The tutoring of the project will be reflected in the POD (teaching planning) of the professor and it will be recognised in the terms established in the normative provisions of the university. If the tutoring is shared with more than one professor of the university, the recognition will be shared.

Each Coordinating Committee should establish if the students from mobility programmes can develop the Master’s Degree project at the host university. In any case, the draft of the project should have the approval of the Academic Coordinating Committee, and a supervisor of the of the University of Valencia will be appointed to it.

In pursuance of the current regulations on Master’s Degree final projects approved by the Governing Council of the University of Valencia, at the beginning of each academic year, the Academic Coordinating Committee (CCA) of the Master’s Degree in Research in Specific Didactics has to announce the list of doctors, belonging to the departments responsible of the teaching of the Master’s, who will supervise the TFM of the students admitted in each academic year, as well as the list of the topics available for research.

For being a supervisor of the TFM is necessary to be a qualified doctor and to have experience of research related to a specialisation of the Master’s Degree in Research in Specific Didactics.

Since the beginning of the academic year, the students can contact with any of the professors of this list for supervising their TFM. Some weeks after the beginning of the academic year, the CCA will appoint a supervisor to those students who already don’t have one.

The list of supervisors of the TFM   is available in this link in specialisations. Next to each professor, the research topic proposed for the TFM is included. As indicated in the current regulations, it is possible to prepare a TFM on a topic different of the ones from the list if the student and the professor agree..

InTFM documents are the general guidelines for the preparation of the TFM.

Assignment of project and supervisor

The topic of the project should be established by mutual agreement between students and their supervisors. In any case, the Academic Coordinating Committee will organise and guarantee the assignment of topic and supervisor for all the students enroled.
