For those specific cases in which the student of the Master’s programme shows an interest to read for a specific subject, or for a part or the whole of the Final Master’s Project, in another university or research centre, the Head of the Master’s programme will plan, monitor and evaluate all mobility actions. At any rate, the defence of the Final Master’s Project will be done at the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya. Similarly, it will provide the mobility of students who may want to do a specific subject of the Master’s programme within the framework of the agreements that the Faculty has signed with other universities.
- Adjustment of the mobility actions to the degree’s training objectives
All possible cases of mobility in the Master’s programme will be planned, monitored and evaluated taking into account the objectives of the degree and the abilities that the student should have acquired by the end of it. To this effect, the UIC shall sign mobility agreements with those foreign institutions offering a study programme (including objectives, development and monitoring) that is coherent with the UIC’s study plans.
- Mobility grants announcements and programmes with UIC participation
The International Relations Service will see to the handling and distribution of the information about all the aspects of the grant programmes relating to the mobility of students (MEC, OAPEE), and will collaborate with the preparation of the documentation required for those grants that can only be applied for by students on their own (AGAUR). In addition it informs and advises on all administrative transactions not only to the UIC’s own students (outgoing students), but also to the host students (incoming students).
To promote mobility among the UIC students, this Service has, among other functions, one of providing information to them by means of presentations during the period of lectures previous to the announcement of grants.
Information about the mobility programmes where the UIC participates is available from the International Relations Service and from the University website. Incoming students will also find information about the programmes where the UIC participates at their university of origin.
The centre will appoint at least one mobility coordinator – there could be more depending on the number of degrees in the centre – who will study the demand of applications from students and lecturers who may want to benefit from the exchange programme with universities with which there is an agreement, in order to carry out a selection of students, and approve and plan their participation in the mobility programme.
- Planning, monitoring, evaluation, allocation of credits and recognition of study plan. Student support and counsel
Each student participating in a mobility programme shall be allocated a mobility lecturer who will provide advice with respect to the destination and period of stay suggested, and about academic aspects and similarities. Monitoring by a mobility lecturer will also take place for host students.
Outgoing students: The mobility lecturer allocated to the outgoing student will, after and evaluation of the academic record, give advice about the destination and the period of the stay suggested and about the academic aspects and similarities to be formalised, and will outline the subjects to be studied at destination, which will be recognised when returning to the UIC.
The International Relations Service will, at all times during each one of the phases, provide the student with the relevant information needed to coordinate the administrative aspects of the stay, not only before leaving, but also once at destination, and before returning to the UIC and once returned to the UIC.
Incoming students: Once the university of origin has selected the candidates to study at the UIC, the mobility lecturer allocated to the incoming student will, in collaboration with the student, organise the academic aspects of the mobility, such as the content or the credits of the subjects to be studied. It will also be in charge of informing them and providing support before, during and after their stay at our University.
The International Relations Service, in turn will, during each of the following phases, provide the student with the relevant information needed to coordinate the administrative aspects of the stay – admission to the UIC as a mobility student, preparation of arrival once admitted to the UIC, and steps to ensure a swift incorporation once at the UIC.
Once the mobility is over, the International Relations Service collaborates with the academic department of the UIC where the student was studying to prepare and forward the documentation certifying the stay and the academic marks obtained.
In addition, the International Relations Service, with the collaboration of the different University services, organises welcoming and information sessions for incoming students and invites them to take part in the cultural and linguistic exchange programme offered by the Languages Service throughout their stay.
The mobility actions for the Master’s Degree in Restorative Aesthetic Dentistry will be planned, monitored and evaluated taking into account the objectives of the degree and the abilities that the student should have acquired by the end of it.
Mobility shall be offered to those students who decide to do the research project or the Final Master’s Project in another university or research centre, to foster the collaboration among the various research groups and make it easier for students to do their Final Master’s Project on the line of research best adapted to their interests.
To this end, a collaboration agreement will be signed with the chosen university or research centre for each specific case, so that the student may join a specific research team and be assigned a host tutor who will act as director of the research work. The Dentistry Faculty of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya currently holds agreements and research projects with institutions such as the following: University of Geneva (Switzerland), University of Montpellier (France), King’s College London (Great Britain), University of Minnesota (USA), University of Buffalo (USA), University of New York (USA), Nova Southeastern University (USA), Ghent University (Belgium) and University of Siena (Italy). The coordinators of the Master’s programme, with the support of the International Relations Service, will be responsible for contacting with the host university or centre, establishing the collaboration agreement and informing the student about the procedure to be followed.
The destination centre will assign the student a host tutor who will also act as the director of the Final Master’s Project. The lecturer-tutor will be in constant contact with the student’s host tutor at the external research centre in order to perform a continuous evaluation of the learning and the skills acquired by the student during the development of the Final Master’s Project.
Concerning the public defence of the Final Master’s Project, an agreement shall be reached in each case concerning the university centre where it will be held. The agreement will have the backing and the authorisation of the Management of the Master’s programme, of the director of the Final Master’s Project and of the host tutor – in the event of being a different one from the director of the Final Master’s Project.

Clinical practical programme
Courses and conferences
During their studies, all our students will be expected to attend conferences and courses imparted by renowned specialists in the field of restorative dentistry. They are also expected to attend scientific conferences, such as those organised by the Spanish Stomatological Prostheses Association (Sociedad Española de Prótesis Estomatológica) and the Spanish Coservative Dentistry Association (Sociedad Española Odontología Conservadora), and to participate with oral communications and posters. Students will be notified with sufficient time to allow them to programme any activities that may be affected by the timing of these courses and conferences.
They are also expected to publish the results of their research in high-impact journals.
