Credit transfer and recognition:
It consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different education for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
It implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, at the same or at another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official degree, will be included.
The USC regulates these two figures in the following regulations published on the web:
Recognition of university activities and transversal competences of the usc:
Students will be able to obtain up to a maximum of 12 optional credits for the recognition of the activities contemplated in article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 and of the transversal competences of the USC. Cross-cutting competences for all USC Master's degrees are considered instrumental knowledge of (1) foreign languages; (2) Galician language, and (3) information and communication technologies. In any case, the maximum number of recognizable credits for the activities of article 12.8 of RD 1393/2007 will be 6.Professional outingsThe teaching profile is the majority among current graduates from previous degrees, who, in any case, in order to carry out this activity in secondary education must complete the specific postgraduate training established. The generalization of the study at this level of the educational system of a second foreign language and the necessary and more than foreseeable increase in the diversity of the linguistic offer will determine a growth in the demand for graduates in these fields of study. To this must be added the considerable development that the Official Language Schools have experienced in recent times.
Additionally, there is a series of emerging profiles; the most relevant quantitatively are those related to publishing, the media, translations and cultural industries.
