Adaptation to new degrees 

 

The licenciaturas in Biology, Biochemistry and Environmental Sciences are being phased out. In the academic year 2014-2015 these degrees will not have teaching, only exams dates, two calls for core or compulsory subjects of the fifth year  and the optional subjects of second cycle(the last). There will be no examinations for the subjects of the fourth year. Students with a maximum of 3 subjects of the fourth year can request, through the  Virtual Office of the Secretary, an extraordinary examination sitting (A single exam).  For continuing the studies in case of not passing this call  students have to request the adaptation to the new degree for the academic year 2015-16.

The adaptation is only done by the students’ request,  and implies the  closing of the academic record of the licenciatura ( simultaneous enrolment in the licenciatura and degree is not possible). The automatic adaptation of the subjects successfully completed in the  licenciatura which appear in the adaptation regulations can be consulted on the  following tables .

However, in the Degrees in Biology  and Environmental Sciences there are subjects that are not included in the automatic adaptation regulations but, which are susceptible to recognition (marked with # and listed in red in the adaptation table). For recognising these  subjects, the submission of the credits recognition form is required  along with  the adaption form. 

Moreover, the First Transitory Provision of the “Regulations for the academic recognition of cultural, sports, students representation, solidary and cooperative activities” states that up to 6 free elective credits of participation in university activities may be recognised.

DEADLINE OF APPLICATION FORMS: From 1 to 28 July 2014
