Final Research Project (TFM)
Registration: Enrolment for these credits in September of the first year of the Master's Degree is not recommended. Instead, students should either enrol during the second enrolment period in the first year (February - March), or in September of the second year. It should be taken into account that the research project involves 375 hous of work.
Modality: research project
The project entails students conducting research on a topic related to the different fields of study taught on the Master's Degree. Students may propose a topic, but it must be approved of by their tutor. Students may also seek further guidance in the choice of their research projects by consulting research topics proposed by lecturers. In any event, students must hand in a research project proposal, which must be accepted by the Master's Degree Studies Committee. Here you can access a selection of Master's dissertations written in the last years.
