Unit and Special Educational Needs Equality Unit The right to equality between women and men has been recognised by the United Nations as a universal legal principle and has been incorporated into the constitutions of democratic countries. However, legal equality, which represents a significant historical achie- vement for women and society in general, has proved inadequate to achieve genuine equality. Society faces the critical challenge of eradicating determined stereotypes and promoting the conditions necessary for equality between women and men to become an effective reality. The incorporation of women into education, and particularly higher education, is a good indication that significant advances have been made towards achieving equality. Nevertheless, various reports on the position of women in universities testify to the persistence of inequalities and imbalances regarding access to academic degrees, career paths and women’s participation in representative bodies. This evidence of inequality indicates that, in addition to addressing the root causes, there is a need to take positive action in order to redress and prevent these inequalities and achieve effective equality.To this end the Organic Law 4/2007 of 12 April, the Organic Law 6/2001, of 21 December, governing universities, amending provided that universities must have equal units. Through its gender equality plans, this Office designs strategies aimed at the entire university community, with the aim of eliminating any type of discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation in the UA, as well as of promoting the value of gender equality in all the university activities. UA has a Gender Equality Committee, which coordinates participation. The Committee includes Student Council members, so students are represented in this institution too. The Gender Equality Office assumes the prevention and intervention in situations of gender-based and sexual orientation harassment in the university community. Further information can found at the UA web page “Against Gender Violence�. web.ua.es/es/unidad-igualdad/violencia-genero/violencia-de-genero.html The Equality Unit is located on the ground floor of the Rectory building.

Training

University Courses and Degrees The process of adapting Spanish university teaching to the European Higher Education Area is being implemented progressively from the 2010/2011 academic year at the University of Alicante. The philosophy of the reform is based on: - Facilitating the mobility of students and teaching staff throughout Europe. - Favouring progressive convergence towards a common degree structure. - Favouring the continuation or resumption of courses at the same or a different university. The Spanish Government issued a Royal Decree on 29 October 2007 to regulate university courses (RD 1393/2007), amended by Royal Decrees 861/2010 of 2 July, 99/2011 of 28 January, 534/2013 of 12 July, 96/2014 of 14 February, 967/2014 of 21 November, 43/2015 of 2 February, 420/2015 of 29 May, 195/2016 of 13 May and 103/2019 de 1 de marzo. DEGREEE MASTER DOCTORATE WORLD OF WORK

The University of Alicante (UA) has also drafted its own regulations for the creation of undergraduate degrees, approved by the Governing Council on 30 June 2008, amended by the UA Governing Council on 29/11/2012 (Official Journal of the University of Alicante of 04/12/2012). Said official university studies consist of 3 cycles: - Undergraduate Degree. - Master’s Degree. - Doctoral Degree.

THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF STUDIES AVAILABLE AT THE UA CAN BE CLASSIFIED IN SEVERAL WAYS • According to the qualification awarded upon successful completion: - Official courses with full academic and professional validity throughout Spain. - Own Courses are designed by each university and cannot use the same name as official titles. They are generally specialist qualifications. • According to teaching level and admission requirements, official studies can be classified as:

028

- Undergraduate Degrees. They are designed to give students an overall grounding in one or more subjects and are designed to prepare them for professional activities. Name of studies will be “Undergraduate Degree in (name of degree) from the University of Alicante”, and may include the formula “with specialisation in (name of specialisation)” where applicable. The Degree Supplement will indicate which branch of knowledge the studies are assigned to. The 5 branches of knowledge are as follows: Arts and Humanities, Sciences, Health Science, Social & Legal Sciences and Engineering & Architecture. All study plans will focus on students acquiring the skills necessary to obtain the title. They will consist of 240 ECTS, except for certain degrees regulated by European Directives (Medicine, Architecture, etc.), which have more ECTS. Those 240 ECTS are distributed into four 60-credit academic years (30 credits per semester).

Student Guide

2019-2020

The University of Alicante currently offers 48 different undergraduate degree programmes, including four double degrees: Law & Business Administration (DADE), Law & Criminology (DECRIM), and Joint Undergraduate Degree in Tourism and Business Administration (TADE) and Joint Undergraduate Degree in Computer Engineering and Business Administration (I² ADE). Also, 56 Master’s Degrees can be studied at our campus, 30 Doctoral Programmes and 92 own postgraduate and specialisation courses (27 Masters, 21 Specialist and 44 Expert). Royal Decree RD 1125/2003 describes EUROPEAN CREDITS also known as European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) as a European credit system that organises study plans so that they are easier to understand and compare, thus allowing universities to understand each other more easily when it comes to managing academic records of international students. This teaching system is based on student learning, valuing the effort made by students to pass subjects, meaning that it takes into account time spent attending classes, hours spent studying, academic work, seminars, projects and time needed to prepare for and attend exams. The following are the main features of the ECTS: - Based on 60 credits as the workload of full-time students for one academic year. - Workload in Europe is 36 to 40 weeks per academic year; at the University of Alicante, it is 40 weeks. - In Europe, a credit stands for 25-30 hours work; at the University of Alicante, it is 25 hours. Students GRADE POINT AVERAGE will be calculated using the following formula: the sum of the credits obtained by the student, each of them multiplied by the value of the corresponding marks and divided by the total number of credits obtained by the student. Credits obtained through recognition of credits that are not integrated in the study plan will neither be rated numerically nor taken into account for the average of the student record. UA graduates must acquire specific knowledge and skills included in UA’s CROSS-SECTIONAL skills curriculum. The cross-sectional skills curriculum consists of the following knowledge and skills that all UA graduates must acquire, regardless of the degree or programme they have chosen: - Foreign Language: minimum accepted level is B1 as per the Common European Framework of Reference for Modern Languages, although B2 is recommended.

029

- Information technologies: included in the different subjects as specific learning results. - Oral and Written Communication: considered to be present in all subjects in each degree and programme.

Tuition in Catalan, English and other languages Why is it important to study in Catalan, English and other languages? Studying in Catalan gets you ready to enter the labour world and to better fit into the society in which we live. Lessons in Catalan will allow you to reinforce your language competence, that is, to know how to use the language both spoken and written, in any communication situation. Language competence in Catalan will give you access to work, both in the public and private sectors, in the region of Valencia, the Balearics, Andorra and Catalonia. The social context also demands the knowledge of English and other languages. Lessons in English will allow you to have a better command of this language to use it in an academic context and this will give you wider access to the labour market. Studying in English will allow you to: - Participate in university exchanges with universities in which English is the working language. - Continue to study and do internships. - Do research activities and work abroad. - Join multilingual teams.

Catalan and English Tuition Options UA has both Catalan and English tuition options for some undergraduate degrees. Also, there are several undergraduate courses that are taught in Catalan, English, French and other languages. Get informed at your centre secretary’s office, its website or at the Languages Service. sl.ua.es/en/dinamitzacio/teaching-activity.html

Work Placements at Companies and Institutions Academic work experience University students have the option of gaining both curricular and extracurricular work experience. In the undergraduate and master’s degrees, work experience is established as an integral part of the curriculum, and may be either compulsory or optional. Therefore, students who wish to broaden their education and improve their future employability may register in the corresponding subject as established in their curriculum. To this end, the UA and its centres have entered into cooperation and education agreements with numerous public and private companies and institutions which offer work placements to our students each academic year. Furthermore, students have the possibility of carrying out extracurricular work placements, which are also practical training and and take place under educational cooperation agreements with collaborating institutions, but which, in such cases, are not linked to a subject within the curriculum. These work placements may be carried out through the centre, as long as this possibility is allowed under its regulations, or by participating in programmes with a general call, such as the Aitana - Erasmus Training programme or the ONCE-CRUE Foundation grant programme. Extracurricular work placements should be managed and carried out in accordance with the regulations applicable to curricular work placements, except in those provisions only applicable to this work placement modality. The Employment and Student Support Office, which forms part of the Office of the Vice President for Students & Employment, and the Student Service Work Placement Unit organise the education cooperation agreements and set the principles

governing work experience management in the centres, which are responsible for the academic management of their students’ work experience. For the 2019-20 academic year, the UA has 6.000 agreements allowing UA students to do work placements. For more information, visit the work placement portal sa.ua. es/es/practicas-empresa/ or the websites of the centres.

European work experience mobility programmes: ERASMUS + The University of Alicante offers current students the chance to complete their education in another EU member state through work placements at companies, official bodies and institutions. The AITANA Project falls within the Erasmus + European mobility programme, approved by the European Commission for the 2014-2020 period. The main aim of this European work placement programme is to improve the qualifications of our university students and increase their possibilities of accessing the labour market with professional and life experience that adds value to their CV. AITANA-Erasmus Training is funded by the European Community and co-funded by the University of Alicante. It is coordinated by the Employment and Student Support Office, which reports to the Office of the Vice-President for Students & Employment and is managed by the Student Service Work Placement Unit.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FOR UNIVERSITY TRANSPORT Every year, the Regional Ministry of Education, Research, Culture and Sports offers a series of transport grants that cover students’ already existing and future transport fees from their towns of residence to the universtiy.

Town councils, university student associations, consumer and user cooperatives aimed at offering university transport services and alternatively (only for routes not covered by any of the above), permanent regular public transport companies may apply for these grants. If a public transport company is awarded this aid, discounts must be at least 25% off the official fare. In order be entitled to these discounts, you usually have to belong to the corresponding association or have a university transport card. Besides these aids provided by the Regional Ministry, students can also contact the company providing the service for information on any passes available that offer a discount on each individual trip. INFORMATION POINTS The Information Service actively works towards providing access to all the information you need: studies, activities, courses, university regulations, accommodation, financial aid, grants and university transport. The information provided below refers to the 2018-2019 academic year, as, at the time of publishing (May 2019), the associations and transport companies that would be offering or managing the services for this academic year had not been confirmed yet. You should therefore confirm the information for the 2019-2020 academic year here: - Information Service. Phone: 965 903 456 (Lecture Building 2). - Student Council’s.

University Ombudsperson The University Ombudsperson (Chapters 197, 198 y 199 of the UA Statutes) is appointed by the University Senate to ensure that the rights and freedoms of the University community are respected as regards the actions of the different bodies and services of the University. It is not managed by any university body, and it works autonomously and independently on the basis of equality and respect towards confidentiality. Usually, the Serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions are triggered by queries, complaints and claims, but it can also act on its own initiative and as a mediator to solve disagreements and conflicts, as long as the parties agree to do so. The University Ombudsperson shall: a) Collect the information necessary to perform his/her duties from the relevant university bodies. For these purposes, all university community members shall collaborate with the Ombudsperson as an urgent priority. b) Request the presence of the authorities of any university body where necessary for the performance of his/her functions. c) Attend meetings of the general decision-making bodies of the University when dealing with any matter relating to Ombudspersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions at the time. To this end, the Ombudsperson should receive a timely copy of the meeting agendas of those bodies. d) Draft any reports that are requested or that the Ombudsperson deems appropriate to issue in connection with his/her actions at the time. e) Propose solutions to the relevant university bodies, as the Ombudsperson deems appropriate, for the settlement of the matters that are brought to his/her attention. Once a year, the University Ombudsperson shall submit a report of his/her activities to the University Senate. In addition, this report shall include recommendations and suggestions for improving university services. All complaints, claims or requests for mediation must be submitted in writing, either in person at the office, by post or by email.

It is not necessary to submit these details during consultations. The University Ombudsperson investigates the facts in order to clarify the causes of the claim. He/ she then informs the interested parties of the result of the investigations. It is important to underline the fact that the University Ombudsperson is not empowered to impose sanctions or suspend administrative activities. However, he/she is responsible for making suggestions and recommendations for correcting any deficiencies or problems to those immediately responsible for the University services, the highest University authorities, and those involved in the measures that should be taken.

Administrative, academic and teaching matters

Administrative, Academic and Teaching Matters This section deals with the most common issues involved in academic and administrative procedures. Most of these procedures are regulated by specific norms included in the Academic Regulations Handbook, which may be consulted at: sga.ua.es/en/academic-regulations/academic-regulations-and-procedures-of-the-university-of-alicante.html The Organic University Law deals with students in Title 8. Article 46 specifically regulates students’ rights and duties. From this section, it is particularly worth highlighting the following: 1. “Studying is a right and a duty for university students.” 2. “The Statutes and organisation and operating regulations (of universities) must develop the rights and duties of students as well as the mechanisms necessary to ensure that they are respected.” Specifically, the University of Alicante Statutes, in Chapter 3 of Title 4, deals with students as part of the university community, and Section 2 in particular defines their duties and rights.

Among others, students have a right to: a) Receive an adequate scientific, technical and cultural education. b) Participate in teaching management and programming, as well as in teaching and teachers’ quality control, according to the relevant procedure.

138

c) Receive help during their training through an effective , cross-sectional guidance and monitoring system offered by the degree, which is supplementary to their comprehensive, critical training and prepares them for working life. d) Receive an objective assessment of their academic performance and have the means to challenge this assessment where appropriate, according to the relevant procedure. e) Know in advance the syllabus of the subjects in which they want to register, as well as the examination dates. f) Academic performance assessment based on public, objective criteria for their educational and continuous training, understood as an element in the teaching-learning process.

2019-2020

Timetables, Appointment of Lectures and Examination Calendar The Timetable contains the distribution of subjects over a period of time (four-month terms or a whole year) for each academic year, indicating study year and group, senior lecturers and all other lecturers per subject, as well as examination dates and the classrooms where the subject is to be taught. The periods within which the teaching timetable must be drawn up (generally between April and May of the previous year) are set out in the Academic Calendar and approved by the Governing Council. By designing the timetables within the specified periods, students are able to more easily choose and organise their academic year. The authorities of the centres shall appoint a lecturer who shall be in charge of organising the timetables and examination calendar for each curriculum or course. These timetables shall be approved by the centre board or a board to which this task has been delegated, and are final. Student representatives must be involved in setting the timetables and examination dates. Examination dates may only be changed for justifiable reasons (for example, due to a change in the Spanish university entrance examination dates), and until 15 days before the initially set date. In any case, modifications may only delay the start dates and must be published on the notice boards. If you have any doubts concerning these issues, please go to your centre’s secretary’s office. You may also obtain specific information from the centre’s webpage (web.ua.es/en/centres-departments-and-institutes.html) or more generally from the Information Service webpage: web.ua.es/es/oia/horarios-academicos/horario-de-clases-y-calendario-de-examenes.html

Group allocation and change When degrees have morning and afternoon timetables in which the same subjects are taught, places are divided into two groups in such a way that they both contain a similar number of students. Students with the best entry marks and academic records will be given priority to choose groups based on their timetables and therefore, they are called to submit their registration documents based on their marks. Some centres allow students to request a group change if they have a good reason. There is an application deadline you may consult at your secretary’s office. Generally, circumstances that may justify a group change are the following: a clash with working hours, transport difficulties, federated or university sporting activities, need to take care of a family member, etc.

Teaching and lecturers The departments are teaching units responsible for coordinating the teaching of their field of knowledge (Article 13 of Chapter 3 of Title 1 of the UA Statutes) Each sub ject taught as part of any degree course is integrated within a department which is responsible for appointing the teaching staff and ensuring that the staff fulfil all their teaching duties. Teaching is a right and a duty of the University’s teaching staff, which shall exercise academic freedom, with no restrictions other than those established in the Constitution and laws, and those derived from the studies planning carried out by the relevant University bodies (Art. 33.2 of Organic University Law and Art. 107 of Section 1 of Chapter 1 of Title 3 of the UA Statutes).

All departments have their own webpage with information about lecturers, studies, location, administration staff, useful links, etc. web.ua.es/en/centres-departments-and-institutes.html The head of department and the Department Council are responsible for quality, and they must ensure that all the hours assigned to their department’s lecturers are taught (Section 1 of Chapter 4 of Title 2 of the UA Statutes). Consequently, if you wish to report any deficiency in this regard, you should inform these bodies.

Tutorials 140

The Governing Council shall establish teaching duties with regard to both actual teaching as well as tutorials and student attendance, in accordance with Art. 145.3 of the UA Statutes. This is applicable to all lecturers with the exception of those who also carry out an academic role University President, VicePresident, dean, head, etc), who shall be totally or partially exempt from teaching and tutorials (Art. 161.2). University of Alicante students have the right to receive help during their training through an effective guidance system (Art. 166.c). For subjects that involve work placements at companies or institutions, students are entitled to receive guidance, during the work placement period, from the University teaching staff and a professional who works at the company, institution or entity where the work placement takes place. Each lecturer’s tutorial timetables shall be published on the centre’s notice board, in accordance with the Order of 29 March 1983. This information is also available at each department’s administration office as well as on the webpage of certain departments. An increasing number of lecturers publish their tutorial timetables on the UACloud. Students registered at the University of Alicante may access the “Tutorial Action Programme” by applying for it when they complete their registration.

Credit Transfer and Recognition CREDIT RECOGNITION Credit recognition may take place when a student accesses an official undergraduate degree with subjects (credits) already passed in the same or in another official undergraduate degree, or in university degree courses that are being phased out (4-year undergraduate degrees, 3-year undergraduate degrees, etc.). Criteria for credit recognition between undergraduate degrees: If a student register for an undergraduate degree after having passed several credits in a different beloging to the same field of knowledge, then core subjets that the student has alredy passed will be recognised with their original name, number of credits and mark obtanined. g If a student gains a degree from another branch of knowledge, the basic subjects common to both branches of knowledge will be recognized. g Non-core subjects (i.e. obligatory and optional subjects) will be recognised as per the following criteria: - number of credits must be at least 75% of the number of credits of the subjects whose credit recognition is being requested. - said subjects must include at least 75% of the contents included in the subjects for which credit recognition is being requested. - said subjects must provide students with at least 75% of the knowledge that would be acquired by the student in the subjects for which credit recognition is being requested. g The subjects corresponding to transversal competences or knowledge (in the UA, level of foreign language, competences in new technologies and oral and written expression) will also be recognized. g In any case, credits corresponding to the Degree and Master’s Programmes Final Projects will not be recognized. g It is also possible to request credit recognition in all undergraduate degrees from senior vocational education courses in Artistic Education and university own courses, which overall cannot be higher than 15% of the total amount of credits included in the undergraduate degree’s syllabus. Similarly, proven work and professional experience can only be recognised as credits for obtaining an official title as long as said experience covers at least 75% of the subjects for which credit recognition is being requested. g

146

Criteria for credit recognition between degrees that are being phased out (4-year undergraduate degrees, 3-year undergraduate degrees, etc) and undergraduate degrees. g

g

The “adaptation tables” included in the undergraduate degree information report shall apply when a student converts to the undergraduate degree replacing his/her degree. In other cases, the subjects passed in degrees that are being phased out shall be recognised depending on the similarity between the content of the subjects taken by the student and those contained in the curriculum of the undergraduate degree which the student has accessed (similarity between subjects).

CREDIT TRANSFER When a student accesses an undergraduate degree with subjects already passed in other unfinished official university courses and the subjects are not recognised, then they shall be transferred to his/her new academic record, so that they appear in the academic documents issued, especially in the European Diploma Supplement (EDS). REQUESTS FOR CREDIT RECOGNITION AND TRANSFER Requests for credit recognition and/or transfer are submitted at the secretary’s office of the centre (faculty/university school) in the period laid down by the University for each academic year. Documentation: g Syllabus of each subject, stamped by the centre where it was studied or by the department responsible for teaching it. g Personal Academic Certificate issued by the centre of origin or certified photocopy. Between University of Alicante courses it is enough to submit the academic record, duly stamped by the centre of origin. g Photocopy of the official curriculum publication. The documentation may be simplified when dealing with courses studied at the University of Alicante itself. Requests for credit transfer and recognition shall be dealt with by the centre boards created to do so. UA Regulations.

Qualifications records, academic record and personal academic certificate QUALIFICATIONS RECORDS Qualifications records are the official electronic documents that contain the fin al marks obtained by stu dents in a spe cific examination session and subject. The teaching staff fill in the records with the students’ marks through the UACloud Virtual Campus and using an electronic signature. Problems relating to academic of functional matters should be solved through the centre’s secretary’s office. The academic calendar lays down the deadlines for completing and signing the records. From that moment the marks are official and final. Academic Calendar 2019/20. Approved by Government Council on february 28th 2019 (BOUA 01/03/2019) sga.ua.es/es/documentos/normativa-academica/calendario/calendario-academico-2019-20.pdf

ACADEMIC RECORD Academic records contain a record of students’ academic life from the moment they enter the University, the course studied, the subjects passed and the marks awarded, transfers (if any) and degree obtained, where appropriate. The academic record is prepared, kept and filed in the administration office of the centre (faculty or university school). Students may check the details of their academic records by accessing the UACloud. They may also request information about their record from the secretary’s office of their centre at any time.

Administrative, academic and teaching matters

Summary of the Regulations Concerning Permanence and Continuation of Studies for Students Registered in Undergraduate Degrees at the University of Alicante Approved by the Social Council on 17 May 2017 (BOUA 18/05/17), this regulation is applicable to the degrees offered by the University of Alicante. sga.ua.es/en/academic-regulations/eees/permanencia/permanence-and-continuation-studies-grade.html

Types of regular registration and number of registration credits There are three kinds of regular registration: a) Full-time registration: at least 48 credits per academic year. Registrations under 48 credits will only be deemed as full-time whenever the student is registering for the last credits left to complete their degree. b) Part-time registration: between 24 and 47 credits per academic year. Students can apply for part-time registration due to personal or academic performance circumstances. c) Special fee for students with functional diversity: aimed at students who need to register for a lower number of credits each year in order to succeed in their studies. Granting of this fee will be subject to the presentation of a report by the Student Support Centre. This fee allows for registration of 6-23 credits.

Permanence regime and performance requirements in registering for specific courses and/or continuing studies New students (both part-time and full-time) must pass at least 30 credits in two academic years. Students with functional diversity who apply for a special student fee must pass at least 12 credits in two academic years.

150

If students fail to pass the minimum amount of credits within the above-mentioned period, they can file an application for continuation of studies. Should said application be unsuccessful or should students fail to file it within the deadline, they will not be allowed to register for the same degree in the two following academic years. Students will not be allowed to register for new subjects if they do not register for all core subjects that they did not pass in the previous academic years. Registration for the subject “Final Year Undergraduate Project” will only be possible once students have passed at least 168 credits (for 240-credit undergraduate degrees), or 210 credits (for 300-credit undergraduate degrees).

The number of times students can register in a specific subject Students have a right to register for each subject three times. A fourth registration opportunity will be automatically granted as long as their academic performance, which is calculated on the basis of a “credits passed (except recognised credits)/credits registered” ratio, is over 50%. Only students who have 60 or less ECTS left to finish their degree will be entitled to request a fifth and last examination opportunity from the University of Alicante President. Should students fail this last examination opportunity, they must abandon their studies at the University of Alicante. They will only be re-admitted to the same undergraduate degree in the event that they got said subject(s)’ credits recognised.

2019-2020

Curriculum adjustment In order to promote access, continuation of studies and taking the most of the academic year, university students can apply for a number of academic actions and techniques. These actions are aimed to support students in the classroom and in exams by providing them with the required adaptations. Curriculum adaptation can organise in two main groups: - The first group would include students with a degree of physical, hearing or mental disability equal or higher than 33% or those with NEAE (Specific Educational Needs). - The second group would include other students such as elite athletes or those representing the UA, victims of gender violence, students who are pregnant or in the process of adopting or fostering children, in charge of children under 3 year old or any other family dependant with a working schedule non compatible with lectures or students in a mobility programmes and some other cases. It is usually requested during the first two weeks of the beginning of the academic year or semester, although the term is open exceptionally for requests derived from unforeseen circumstances have occurred. www.boua.ua.es/pdf.asp?pdf=3301.pdf web.ua.es/en/cae/student-support/how-to-apply-for-curriculumadjustments.html
