Master´s Thesis


Students may choose between a research and professional track for their Master´s Thesis. The research track leads to a research report while the professional track leads to an internship report. During S4 students will take 2 courses (Research Seminar + 1 elective) while they do their Research or Internship. Internships last for 360 hours and they can take place between January and August. All students will have to write a final Master's Thesis (a research report or an internship report) and defend it orally in front of a committee. Students can choose whether to do their oral defense in July or in September.

Professional track

The coordinator organizes an informative session on the possibilities regarding the internships in October. Students interested in the professional track can, either contact the institutions where they want to do an internship themselves or apply for an internship offered by the coordinator. Internships can take place in Madrid or in any other city/country. However, you need to take into account that you will have two compulsory classes that will go on until late April or the beginning of May. Our administration will contact the institutions and an agreement will be signed between UAM and the institution where the internship will take place. This agreement needs to be signed before the placement starts.

Students following the research track wanting to do extracurricular internships are encouraged to contact the institutions at their own initiative. Once they are accepted, they can contact the coordinator who will facilitate all information and procedures about the signing of an agreement between UAM and the institution where the internship will take place. This agreement needs to be signed before the placement starts.

Institutional internship programs:

Students interested in certain institutions are encouraged to apply on their own to the different internship programs as long as they are compatible with the rest of courses and conditions of the EUROSUD program.

In case they are accepted, they will get recognition for the corresponding 18 ECTS, as long as there is an agreement with UAM and the rest of required criteria are met.
