Work placement types
In the UIC's Faculty of Communication two types of placement are available: curricular (or compulsory) and extracurricular (or voluntary).
- These placements are included within the curriculum, and therefore are compulsory to obtaining your degree.
- Audiovisual Communication and Advertising and PR students complete a work placement in the fourth year, and Journalism students must do so in both the third and fourth years
- The total number of placement hours to be completed within each degree is 300.
- Any UIC Barcelona student can take part in an extracurricular placement voluntarily. Exchange students cannot participate in work placements under the UIC Barcelona agreement.
- They are not included in the curriculum and are in addition to the curricular. placement.
- Students from all years can take work placements, provided they have completed the first 60 ECTS of the degree.
What do they have in common?
All placements are monitored on a personalised basis, to ensure the objectives set are met in terms of the tasks to be carried out, learning, assimilation of knowledge and acquisition of skills.
