Characteristics of Dual University education 

Dual university training is a learning modality that takes place in official university Barchelor's and Master's degree, as well as in Lifelong Learning degrees. Royal Decree 822/2021 establishes the basic regulatory framework for dual university training in Spain Through the Dual Mention in official university Barchelor's and Master's degree course.

The main differentiating criterion of dual training is the greater responsibility of the external collaborating entity in the training of students. However, other characteristics that differentiate dual training from external academic placements are mentioned below: 

  • There is an alternation of training periods in the collaborating entity.
  • There is greater integration of the training period at the collaborating entity in the training curriculum.
  • There is closer coordination between the university and the collaborating entity.
  • There is a more integrated tutoring of the academic part and of the collaborating entity. 
  • There is an integration of the Bachelor's or Master's final project (TFG/TFM)
