EF Program: English-Friendly Subjects in the EPS

Última modificación: 20/11/2019 - 15:51

The approach of the “English‐Friendly” (EF) subjects has as the main goal increasing internationalization at the Technological College (EPS):

• More appealing academic offer for foreign students.

• Possibility of improving the English level of the students.

 

With the exception of two optional English courses taught in that language (25269 - English for Environmental Science and 28955 - English for rural and agri-food engineering), the rest of the courses in the EPS are in Spanish. The EF program offers a selection of subjects from our degrees in which students (under request) will be provided with materials, tutorials and assessment tests in English; and since they are given in Spanish, their teaching will not change at all. This opens the door to those foreign students who do not feel comfortable (especially at the beginning) with their level of Spanish (at least B1 is recommended).

Specifically, the EF subjects will have:

• Program in English.

• Books and/or alternative material in English with which the subject can reasonably be followed.

• Possibility of office hours’ attention in English.

• Evaluation in English: statements of works and exams in English. Possibility of answering in English.

 

During the academic year 2019/20, the subjects offered in the EF modality are:

 Each course will follow this procedure:

1. During the process of elaboration-revision of the Teaching Guides, the professors will communicate if the subject will be EF.

2. The offer of the EF subjects for each academic year will be reported on the website.

3. In September, Director will request the departments with teaching responsibility in the EPS to review the EF offer published on the web and to communicate about the possible changes that occur during the course.

4. Students who wish to attend to the EF program will notify the professors of the corresponding subjects at the beginning of the semester.

 

A subject is EF by decision of its teaching staff, who are not require a minimum level of language. It is important to remark that, if there were any professor changes or any other circumstance occurred, the subject could cease to be EF. For this reason, students who want to attend to the EF program should talk to the professor/s of the subject/s at the beginning of the semester. IN students are reminded to have two months since joining the EPS, to modify their learning agreements.
