Extracurricular placements

Extracurricular work placements can be done at home or abroad and their purpose is to help students gain experience of working in the tourism or hotel business: travel agencies, hotels, tourist apartments, caterers, conference organisers, tourism promotion offices, etc.

Access to placements

The School, through its Jobs Bank and Placements Unit, offers its students over 700 places at partner institutions and companies in all sectors of Tourism.

These offers are posted on the UAB Campus Virtual intranet and on social networks. All students may apply for these offers as indicated in each one. Once selected, students should contact the Placements Unit for the cooperation agreement to be drawn up.

Admission requirements

To undertake a placement, students must meet the following requirements.

a) They must be enrolled on the university programme to which the basic competences acquired on the placement correspond.

b) They must not be employed by the partner organisation where they wish to undertake the placement or be related up to the second degree of kinship to a manager or external tutor.
