Undergraduate teachings aim to have the student obtain general education in one or various disciplines directed to the preparation of professional activities. Undergraduate degrees have 20 credits containing all the theoretical and practical education that the student should acquire, although degrees subject to the regulations of the government law community could assign a higher number of credits.
Study plans are to have a minimum of 60 credits of basic education, of which at least 26 should be linked to the knowledge field of the degree. Generally these credits are concentrated into 6-credit classes. The remaining classes, up until the 240-credit mark, are to be made up of obligatory and optional materials or classes. If external internships are programmed, they are to have a maximum extension of 60 credits and the obligatory final project is to be of 6-30 credits.
In accordance to the regulation that the University establishes, students registered in undergraduate studies are able to obtain academic recognition in credits for the participation in cultural university activities, athletics, student representation, and activities related to solidarity and cooperation. These shall be applied to the calculation of optional credits.
In order to access undergraduate studies general University access requirements must be met.
Article 35 of Organic Law 6/2001 of universities, modified by Organic Law 4/2007 , of 12 April 2007, states that university teachings are to be structured in three cycles: Undergraduate, Masters and Doctorate studies.
Likewise, the Royal Decree of 1393/2007 , of 29 October establishes the regulation of official university teachings and develops the structure and design of Undergraduate, Masters, and Doctorate studies.
