Special awards

General information
For each course a committee will select which students will receive a special award. They select from among all students graduating, and it is not necessary to apply for an award. These awards are made once a year on the date specified in the academic and administrative calendar.

In each faculty or centre, a committee made up of lecturers proposes which students should be given a special award. These proposals, written by the dean team, have to be approved by the Board of the faculty or centre, after listening to the Teaching Committee. Once the Board has approved the proposal, they pass it on to the UAB Governing Council for final approval. The UAB informs the concerned students of the decision.
Students who have won a special award for degree studies at the UAB are eligible for up to 30 academic credits free of charge when registering on an official UAB master’s degree, deducted from the applicable overall fees for that degree. This deduction will be applied at the student’s request and separately from the registration process; it is applicable only in the first year in which the student registers on the UAB master’s degree.

Requirements
To be eligible for a special award, you must have completely finished your course at the UAB and have obtained an overall grade of 8 or above.

Further information
Every academic year one special award may be conferred as far as the number of students who have finished their studies is equal to or less than 50. If the number of people finishing their studies is more than 50 and less than or equal to 100, then an additional special award can be granted, and this formula can be applied from there on.
