Prior training requirements
Due to the possibility that students with varying prior knowledge are able to start the Master’s Degree, four subjects will be offered as supplementary training courses:
Basic Finance in Wine Companies for Non-financial Personnel (3 credits)
The Fundamentals of Sensory Analysis (3 credits)
The Fundamentals of Enology (3 credits)
Environmental and Physiological Principles of Grape Composition and Production (3 credits)
Once the students’ pre-registration has been accepted, the Master’s Academic Committee will establish the need to study one or more of these supplementary training courses prior to starting the Master’s degree, or at the same time, based on each student’s curriculum. The credits corresponding to these courses do not count towards the official university degree.
After pre-enrolment, the students will be given academic advice from a personal tutor, as discussed in the section on support and orientation after enrolment. They will analyse the student’s previous studies and will guide the student when it comes to enrolling in one or more of these supplementary training courses. The Academic Committee will oversee and coordinate this guidance in order to ensure that this student training process is as effective as possible. Likewise, the Committee will intervene if there are any discrepancies between the student and the tutor regarding the need to take one of the additional courses, as well as if a student’s choice could interfere with the academic programme set out for the Master’s Degree.
- Student Record: Assessment of average grade according to Ministry of Education criteria (50%)
- Curriculum: Assessment of professional CV (30%)
- Other: Languages, courses, other qualifications (20%)
In addition to the merits assessment (professional CV, student record, and other criteria), each candidate could have an interview with a member of the Academic Committee to confirm the student’s interest and availability, as well as the suitability of this Master’s degree for their particular profile. Essentially, the aim is to ensure that the professional profile of the master suits the student’s needs and interests. The Academic Committee will use this interview and the merits assessment to select the students prior to enrolment. The information from the interviews will then be passed on to the tutors assigned to each of the selected students to assist them when it comes to providing advice on which course credits to take.
