Adaptation Tables Economics

The new degree will be implemented progressively, that is to say, academic year by academic year. Once one academic year of the previous study plan is phased out, four exam sessions will be made available to students wishing to continue their studies according to the old plan. There will be no official teaching for these exams and if a student has previously sat these exams the maximum number of times without passing, this will not be taken into account. Any students who have still not passed the exams after four exam sessions but wish to continue their undergraduate studies will have to adapt to the new degree. Credits will be recognized in accordance with the corresponding adaptation tables.

Adaptation procedure from the Degree in Economics to the Bachelor’s Degree in Economics

In order to minimize the negative effects on students who had acquired a significant proportion of the skills corresponding to each section of content, two complementary models have been designed in order to adapt their studies.

MODEL 1. Adaptation by module

This model is based on a classification of the subjects of the old study plan within the modules defined for the project of the new Bachelor’s Degree course. Students who have studied core or mandatory subjects within the old plan, in a module with the same or longer duration than that of the same module in the new plan, will receive the recognition of all the subjects included in this new module. A student not achieving the number of credits established in the new study plan module will then follow the process described in model 2 in the case of this specific module (see table 1). Any excess credits obtained by a student in a module of the old study plan, once converted to the same module of the new plan, will be recognised as optional credits.


For example, if a module consists of 20 credits and students have obtained 25 credits in the old study plan, the complete module will be recognised and they will be obliged to study five less optional credits within the new plan.

MODEL 2. Adaptation by subject

This model will be applied when a student has not achieved a number of core or mandatory credits in a module of the old plan with an equal or higher number of credits to the equivalent module in the new Bachelor’s Degree (see table 2). Credits corresponding to the subjects passed in the old study plan and not recognized in the new plan will be recognized as optional credits, in accordance with the table of adaptation by subject.


For example, if in a module consisting of 20 credits, a student obtained 18 credits in the old study plan, recognition by subjects will be applied. Supposing 12 of these credits are equivalent to credits in the new plan, the student will have to study 6 less optional credits in the new plan.
