In the case of the San Rafael Nebrija University Center, students carry out supervised internships that put them in contact with the working world. The Coordinators of the Supervised Internships guide the student starting in the Second year, where he/she takes the subject "Basic-level supervised internship". As the student advances, the student will perform the "Mid-level supervised internship" (3rd year) and "Advanced-level supervised internship” (4th year). The internship coordinator informs the students of the rotations to be carried out.
The supervised clinical internships guarantee that the student has acquired all the competences required by the Bachelor's Degree. These internships are regulated by specific regulations. The competences, as well as the evaluation system, are specified in the respective teaching guides.
The training on the competences that must be acquired in the internships, includes the participation, on the one hand, of the tutors of the centers in which they are carried out and, on the other, of the professors responsible for the Practicum subjects.
In order to carry out the supervised internships, the San Rafael Nebrija University Center has a series of agreements with Centers in both the public and private sectors. On the other hand, there are also agreements with foreign universities that allow the student to stay abroad to carry out the internship and, in some cases, other subjects.
