To successfully complete the optional component of the course, students may choose between Route II or Work Experience.

It is envisaged that teaching hours will be adapted to the particular circumstances of the students for whom this Bridging Course is intended, most of whom may be working.   This timetable will achieve the dual objective of enabling students to attend the course, and avoiding any possible conflict of teaching duties between the Bridging Course and the Degree course, in accordance with the timetable established in the course programme.

 

Estimated quantitative values for the indicators listed below and rationale for the estimation.

With respect to the bridging course, it is envisaged that the indicators used to evaluate learning outcomes will be better compared to typical values for the Degree, since students will already have ample knowledge of the subject matter.  Therefore, an improvement in indicators is envisaged and in consequence, the following values are proposed:

  • Effectiveness rate > 80 %.
  • Graduation rate > 50 %.
  • Dropout rate < 20 %.

 

Implementation timescale for the Bridging Course

The course of adaptation has registered high levels of demand in previous editions having been more than 200 students each year without the possibility of registration. In view of these data, it is expected that the first academic year in which it is not offered (2013/2014), there will be a high demand for enrollment of new students entering graduate from extinct plans. This would significantly reduce the chances of access to the level of new students from senior high school and vocational training and competing for the same seats.
To resolve this situation, it is proposed that an adaptation period, while demand is sufficient to cover 50% of places offered in this course.
