Curricular evaluation

The curricular evaluation is the system that allows the joint evaluation of different knowledge areas with the objective of value the global performance and the progress of the students in the Degree.

The Study Plan of the Degree in Architectural Studies has a structure determined by three curricular blocks.

Block 1 - Initial phase: is made up of the 10 subjects from the first course, in accordance with the study plan. 

1º

Block 2 - 2nd, 3rd and 4th course: is made up of the 10 compulsory subjects from 2nd course, the 9 compulsory subjects from 3rd course, and the 9 compulsory subjects from 4th.

Thematic studio I Thematic studio I
Theory II Structures IV
Construction IV Law and management in Architecture

 

Block 4 - Optatives: it's formed by all the elective subjects that the student has studied and, if applicable, the recognition of elective credits that may have obtained.

 

Evaluation of the curricular block

The evaluation of the curricular block will take when the students have studied and have qualified all the subjects that form the block. In the case of elective block will be evaluated the number of obtained credits in the qualified subject and the credits recognitions, if it's appropriate, reach the minimum of 24 ECTS established by the study plan.

The course Commission will meet, at least:

  • two times, one at the beginning of each semester, to coordinate the programming of the continued evaluation acts of all the subjects.
  • once, at the end of the course, for the curricular evaluation.

The results of the curricular evaluation will be known to the students through the publication of the curricular record.

 

Block approval

BLOCK 1

Given his singularity in the curriculum and as a basic education in the curricular evaluation of the Initial Phase is considered as approved when one one the following points is fulfilled:

  1. when have a grade equal or higher than 5 in all the subjects of the block.
  2. when have one subject with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade not less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the average grade is equal or higher than 6.
  3. when have two subjects with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade not less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the average grade is equal or higher than 6,5.


BLOCK 2

The approval of the block 2 will be completed when:

  1. when have a grade equal or higher than 5 in all the subjects of the block.
  2. when have one subject with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade not less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the weighted average grade is equal or higher than 5,5.
  3. when have two subjects with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade not less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the weighted average grade is equal or higher than 6.
  4. when have three subjects with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade not less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the weighted average grade is equal or higher than 6,5.

BLOCK 3

The approval of the block 3 will be completed when:
  1. when have a grade equal or higher than 5 in all the subjects of the block.
  2. when have one subject with failed as descriptive qualification and numerical grade no less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the weighted average grade is equal or higher than 5,5.

BLOCK 4

The approval of the block 4 will be completed when: the number of credits between qualified subjects and elective credit recognition, if applicable, reach the minimum of 24 ECTS that establishes the Degree's curriculum and:

  1. when have a grade equal or higher than 5 in all the subjects of the block.
  2. when have one subject with failed descriptive qualification and numerical grade no less than 4, the rest of the subjects passed and the weighted average grade is equal or higher than 5,5.
In this block 4 or optative's block, the recognition of elective credits that do not have a numerical qualification will be considered for the purpose of credits number but won't be considered to calculate the average grade of the block. 

Block TFG

The Degree's Final Thesis determines by itself a curricular block. As a consequence, for its approval a numerical grade equal or higher than 5 is needed.
