The internships made in external organizations (companies, institutions) constitute a subject of 6 ECTs, named External Internships. It is an optative subject and it is offered during the second semester of the last year of the Degree in Biology. These internships have as objective to ease the formation of the students for the professional exercise in order to improve their inclusion in the laboral world.
For being able to make the external internships, the students must have passed at least the 50% of the degree credits (120 ECTs) and the receiving entity must have signed an educational cooperation agreement with the University of Vigo. Our centre has agreements with about 90 public and private entities.
