Given the academic and research nature of the master's degree, and taking into account the profile of the UNED students, who generally combine their studies with work life, no external internships are expected.
The only practical part of the Master is the Master's Thesis (TFM). During the TFM the student will be supervised by a tutor.
Master's professors will propose different topics for the TFM.
Each student will be assigned a TFM. This assignment will be carried out trying to balance the offer of TFM matters proposed by the Master's professors and the demand of TFMs from the students.
The TFM can be defended provided the student has passed the remaining courses (48 ECTS).
The defense of TFM must be public and before a committee made up of 3 faculty members/researchers. The defense must be in person at the Faculty of Sciences or through webconference from an Associated Center of the UNED .
