Thus, the third level corresponds to Master's degrees that are characterized as "advanced, specialized or multidisciplinary education, oriented to academic or professional specialization, or to promote initiation in research tasks", and whose characteristics are defined in the following descriptors:

The teaching system will be carried out entirely through the Virtual Campus, accessible from the Internet through the distance learning computer platform currently in use at the University.
Nebrija Platforms Access to the Virtual Campus
At the beginning of the course, the student is given, via online resources (email and downloadable material from the website), thegeneral documentation of the Master's degree, that will include:
Along with this general documentation and also electronically, the student will be provided with a didactic guide for each subject, which includes:
This material will be accessible at any time through the Virtual Campus, whose main page contains all the subjects in which the student is enrolled, organized by semester.
Each subject is coordinated by a tutor, who is responsible for setting the educational itineraries and providing students, through the Virtual Campus, all the necessary material to take the course.
The Virtual Campus of each subject is structured around a set of folders for communication, documentation, notices, etc. typical of educational e-learning projects. The platform also offers a series of fundamental tools for online learning, such as forums, videoconferencing, the submission of papers and repositories of documents for the dissemination of notes among students. Additionally, it incorporates tools such as surveys or exercises that allow students to interact with their progress level in the subject.
The teaching of the subjects is structured on educational itineraries that are learning sequences programmed by the tutor according to the contents of the subject, divided into modules (chapters) and stages. In the educational itinerary, not only are documents included, but it can include any of the tools offered by the Virtual Campus platform, so that the elements of the itinerary can be exercises, group work, participation in forums, surveys or any other element of the campus.
The tutor monitors the progress of the students, knowing at all times what documents they have read and how much time they have devoted to it, being able to establish for example mandatory milestones, so that if the student has not passed a test he cannot access the rest of the educational itinerary.
In addition to the material available on the campus, group tutoring will be scheduled on a regular basis and on previously set days, made through
The publication of documentation is distributed throughout the course, in several deliveries corresponding to the different modules and stages of learning, so that the student assimilates the subject matter gradually. Each of these publications of teaching material will be composed of various types of documents:
In each publication of documentation, the tutor will inform the students of the deadline for submitting each of the exercises and proposed work, which will normally be three or four weeks after the publication of the corresponding contents.
Although the evaluation system may vary depending on the particular characteristics of each subject, in general, the evaluation system is structured around the following elements:
The final tests of each subject can consist of both an exam and the presentation of a project submitted by telematic means.
In the final grade of the subject, the grade of said final test is weighted with the rest of the assessment elements as indicated in the Teaching Guide of each subject.
The specific percentages of weighting in each subject are included in the documentation delivered to the student at the beginning of the course.
All grades will be accessible through the Internet, in the student’s private section.
The Final Research Project of the Master's degree, consisting in the creation of a digital marketing plan, must be defended in a videoconference before a Tribunal.
Said Tribunal will be made up of Master's degree professors and relevant professionals of the sector.
The reading and defense of the Final Research Project of the Master's degree will take place in July or September, depending on the period of completion of the internship, and can only be done once the rest of the subjects of the Curriculum have been passed.
The evaluation will take into account both the individual work, embodied in the written and audiovisual document contained in the proposal (80% of the final grade), and the oral presentation before the Tribunal (20% of the final grade).
The School of Social Sciences of Nebrija University celebrates its Law and International Relations Week with top-level speakers and representatives from the best law firms, companies and institutions in the sector.
