Faculty Regulations

Mid-term Examinations

The regulations governing mid-term examinations on the degree programmes in the Faculty of Education were approved on 19th December 2012.

Mid-term examinations on degree programmes should be seen as an exceptional assessment tool. They are a random test on one half or a third of a subject's content and are taken in ordinary class time, coinciding with subject teaching periods. If these types of tests are not properly scheduled, they hinder normal class development. It should be pointed out that one week is scheduled for this type of exam on the UIB academic calendar.

For this reason, holding these tests is deemed exceptional and subject to approval by the Degree Programme Council for the subject in question, in accordance with the following procedure:

If a subject requires mid-term exams, the course lecturer shall present a proposal and the examination date to the Degree Programme Council before the course guides are finalised (June of the previous academic year), which shall approve the date and notify course lecturers. It is understood that if no proposal is submitted to the Council, no mid-term examination may be held.

Add/Drop Registration

  1. Students who have formalised their enrolment within the ordinary deadline may extend their registration. Adding or dropping classes may only be done for second-semester subjects.
  2. The basis for extended registration shall be in accordance with what has been submitted by the faculty or college and approved by the Academic Committee. The add/drop registration plan will be published before the ordinary registration deadline for new students.

The Faculty of Education has established the following add/drop registration plan for the 2018-2019 academic year:

  1. Extended registration applies to all second-semester courses, except external placements and the final degree project. The extended registration period will run from 4th to 15th February 2019.
  2. For elective courses, extended registration shall only apply to those that have not reached their set maximum capacity.

Application Deadlines for Clashing Examinations

The periods governed by the Academic Regulations are maintained: December for the February exam sessions and April for the June sessions.

Faculty of Education Regulations governing how to make up for activities not completed from degree programmes

  • For justified cases, lecturers must have planned a procedure whereby students' marks are not unfairly impacted by their not being able to do an assessed activity. In this sense, justified reasons shall be as follows:
  • Medical reasons: upon presentation of a doctor's note from a private insurance company, social security or the UIB.
  • Family death: death of a direct older or younger relative, also with proof.
  • In both instances, the illness or death must coincide with the activity date, making it impossible to take.
  • In other instances, the Degree Programme Council shall decide whether students have the right or not to make up for activities not undertaken.

Final Degree Project Regulations

The Ordinary Meetings of the Board of the Faculty held on 19th June and 14th October 2013 approved the changes to the Final Degree Project Regulations.

Faculty Regulations on Programme Advancement in the Faculty of Education

The Faculty of Education approved on 21st December 2012 that students in the Faculty of Education must pass a minimum of 30 credits in the first year and 60 between the first and second year to be able to advance in their studies.


Regulations on group changes in the Faculty of Education

In accordance with article 15 in the Academic Regulations regarding group allocation, at its meeting on 19th June 2013 the Faculty of Education Board approved that 3% of group places would be reserved for duly justified and documented group changes where the circumstances set out in the Academic Regulations arise.

Students who wish to change group need to submit a request via UIBdigital. The deadlines need to be checked with admin services. 

The accreditation documentation justifying the group change due to schedule conflict (employment contract, elite athlete, etc.) must be attached to the request. Requests shall only be processed where there are enough places and the schedule conflict is justified in line with the causes stated in the academic regulations and duly documented.

In no instance shall requests that do not comply with the aforementioned requirements and lack the accreditation documents be processed.

Group changes that do not follow the aforementioned procedure and have not been approved by the faculty board shall not be authorised.

Allocation of Places to Different Groups in each Subject

Once enrolment is complete, the centre shall make the relevant distribution of places if deemed necessary for academic or administrative purposes.

Taking Another Speciality in the Primary Education Degree Programme

Graduates from the University of the Balearic Islands Primary Education programme may take another specialisation. To do so, they need to fill in a general application form available here.

If the interested parties wish to request more than one specialisation, they must state this in the form in their order of preference, as well as the university campus where they wish to take it.

If there are more applications than available places, the home centre and academic record mark shall be taken into account.

Deadline: 7th to 14th October 2022

Submission: via e-mail to secretaria.gc@uib.cat stating 'Sol·licitud Nova Menció' ('New Specialisation Request') as the subject line.

Specific FoE regulations governing the performance and recognition of extracurricular placements

On 10th February 2021, the Faculty of Education Board approved that faculty students could undertake extracurricular placements as long as they do not clash with the respective curricular placement periods on the degree programmes where they are enrolled (Early Childhood, Primary Education, Social Education and Pedagogy), in order to avoid any scheduling conflicts.

In turn, the Board also approved on the same date that in no way would extracurricular placements be accredited as curricular placements on the Early Childhood, Primary Education, Social Education and Pedagogy degree programmes, since these placements are paid and not tutored.
