At the Faculty Meeting held on March 15, 2021, it was ratified the extinction of the Master's Degree in Physics of Complex Systems (MFSC), approved at the meeting of the Academic Committee of the Master's Degree held on March 4, 2021.
The beginning of the extinction of the master will take place in the academic year 2021/22, and will coincide with the implementation of the new Master in Advanced Physics (MFA), as foreseen in the Verification Report of this master. This means that new students will no longer be allowed to enroll in the MFSC from the academic year 2021/22 (inclusive).
Regarding the situation of students who have already started their studies in the MFSC, there are two main alternatives:
They will be able to continue their studies and therefore enroll in the remaining courses until the end of the course, in accordance with the following conditions:
The regulations guarantee that during the two academic years following the beginning of the extinction of the master's degree (academic years 2021/22 and 2022/23), the tutoring of the subjects and the evaluation process will continue to be carried out normally.
The regulations also establish that a student can be enrolled in a master's degree for a maximum of 4 years, with the possibility of 1 additional year if he/she takes advantage of the grace period, plus an extra year if only the Master's Thesis is pending and the additional grace period is granted. This makes a maximum of 5+1 years. Within this period, the student may continue to enroll and will be guaranteed the evaluation as it has been developed, but beyond the two initial courses mentioned above, there will be no attention or tutoring by the faculty. For example, if a student enrolled for the first time in the academic year 2019/20, he/she can continue to enroll in the ordinary way until the academic year 2022/23, apply for the grace call during the academic year 2023/24, and the additional grace call in the academic year 2024/25 (if only the TFM remains). However, you will only receive tutoring during the academic years 2021/22 and 2022/23.
Students will be able to transfer at any time they wish to the new MFA master's degree. Regarding this option, please note the following:
The new MFA inherits approximately 50% of the subjects of the old MFSC, so if a student of the MFSC has taken some of those subjects and wants to transfer to the new master, those subjects will be recognized directly in the new master as passed (with the grade already obtained).
In the case of subjects that do not have counterparts in the new master's degree, a recognition of competencies will be carried out. This procedure consists of comparing the competencies acquired in the subjects of the old master's degree with the competencies foreseen in the subjects of the new master's degree. In the case of finding two subjects with equivalent competencies, one will be recognized for the other.
In those cases in which there is no coincidence in content or competencies, as well as for any other problem that may arise from the request for transfer of a transcript, the Academic Committee of the new MFA will be the body in charge of articulating the corresponding procedure.
It is expected that the transfer mechanism will be agile and flexible. For any questions regarding administrative procedures, please contact: email@example.com
