Practices

Students have a wide number of institutions, organizations and companies with which the Ortega y Gasset Institute has signed collaboration agreements, in which they can carry out practices that will be accredited on completion. They are important in the training of students and allow them to come into contact with professional fields of their interest. However, it must be remembered that in the Research Master's the internships do not equal ECTS credits and, therefore, they are not graded.
The hours for carrying out the practices will be established according to their characteristics and the student's availability. The schedules, in any case, will be compatible with the academic, training and representation and participation activities carried out by the student at the Foundation. Regarding the duration of the internships, they will not exceed the maximum allowed in current regulations.

Some of the institutions, organizations and companies with whom we have had or have collaboration agreements for the practices are the following:

  • Efe Agency (practices in the field of information)
  • Spanish Agency for International Cooperation (AECID) (internships in the field of cooperation)
  • Diario de Prensa Digital SL (practices in the field of information)
  • German Sánchez Ruipérez Foundation. Reader's House
  • El Cano Institute Foundation (practices in the field of international relations)
  • Ponce + Oak Gallery
  • Greenpeace Spain
  • Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport (agreement for practices in Museology and Museography)
  • Mosaiq Marketing and Communication (internship in different projects)
  • Spanish Society of Radio Broadcasting. Chain Ser
  • Torres and Carrera. Communication Consultants (practices in communication, marketing, etc.)

It should be borne in mind that, at the student's request, the Ortega y Gasset University Institute will always agree to propose the signing of a new internship agreement with other entities of their interest. On the other hand, it is important to point out that the practices are subject to the availability of vacant places by the receiving institution, a circumstance that this center cannot always guarantee.
