Final degree project

The Final Degree Project (TFG) of the Veterinary Graduate degree from the ULPGC is structured into:

Prerequisites to be able to present the TFG

In order to present the TFG you must have passed all other subjects of the degree, 294 ECTS passed. This does not imply that you cannot start doing your TFG earlier. It is therefore a requirement for its presentation and defense before the court that you must comply with when you submit the application for evaluation.


The TFG commission will annually approve a document that will be called "Portfolio" and whose contents will be prepared from the proposals of all the areas involved in the verification of the competences of day one (Day-One Skills) established by the EAEVE.

The portfolio must collect the evaluation qualification of each one of the competences of day one through evaluation activities. As specified in the degree verification report, these activities will be carried out in the subjects Clinical Practices, External Practices and Mobile Clinic I and II and Clinical Rotation in Companion Animals and Clinical Rotation in Large Animals. Each activity will be evaluated by a Tutor Professor who must be assigned by the TFG Commission. The portfolio will detail the criteria that the evaluator must take into account to assess the completion of the competition. The portfolio will be written in English.

As of the 2019-2020 academic year, the portfolio is managed through a computer application, e-portfolio integrated into the Academic application.

End of Title Project

In the case of the Degree, the TFG formats to be presented can be some of the following:

  1. Research, development and innovation work, and experimental work related to Veterinary Medicine, which may be carried out in Departments or University Centers, Research Centers, companies and other related institutions. In the case of being carried out in collaboration with companies, the interest of their legal representative in collaborating in the TFG must be accredited.
  2. Jobs of a professional nature directly related to Veterinary Medicine.
  3. Other works that will correspond to offers from the Departments or from the students themselves, not adjusted to the previous modalities, such as: Presentation of a Clinical Case or Cases, Retrospective or prospective clinical/pathological study, Bibliographic review on the pathogenesis, strategies, diagnostic, therapeutic and/or novel control (less than 5 years) of a disease, Risk Analysis and Control of Critical Points, Preparation of a Guide to Good Hygiene Practices, Preparation of a health or Preventive Medicine program for a livestock farm or zoo, Preparation of a Basic health, production and welfare report, Preparation of an expert report, Preparation of basic projects for livestock farms.
Academic Tutors

In order to guarantee the best academic supervision, the TFG must be assigned to an area of knowledge and it will coincide with the area of knowledge of the tutor and/or co-tutor.

The list of professors (in alphabetical order) who teach the title and their offer of TFGs will be published annually. Regardless of this offer, the student may propose a TFG not included in said list.

In the application for assignment of the TFG title and tutor, students must propose the subject and a shortlist of tutors (ordered in order of preference) from among the list of tutors whose area corresponds to the theme of the TFG. Said request will state exclusively the approval of the first professor who proposes for his/her tutelage, and must have had the verbal commitment of the other two. Likewise, it may indicate the designation of a co-tutor.

The TFG Commission will assign academic tutors to the TFG applications. In case of conflict, a tutor will be assigned starting with the student with the best average grade in the academic record.

As stipulated in article 7.1 of the ULPGC General End-of-Degree Project Regulations, the following delegation of powers is established: the Faculty Board delegates to the End-of-Degree Project Commission the establishment of the minimum and maximum number of TFG that a professor can supervise and co-supervise each academic year and will do so taking into account the number of works and tutors to be assigned. Once the possibility of assigning any of the 3 tutors proposed in the application has been exhausted, an available tutor will be assigned from the same area and chosen at random or, failing that, from a related area.

The updated list of professors who teach at the center and with the offer of Final Degree Projects is presented below.



The evaluating courts will be made up of three members: a president and two members. All professors who teach at the center, and who are assigned to the areas included in the teaching organization plan of the degree, are obliged to participate in the TFG courts. In no case may the tutor be part of the evaluation panel. It will be possible to justify the impossibility of belonging to a court for the reasons included in the General Regulation of End of Degree Work of the ULPGC.

Court Assignment.

The TFG Commission will assign each TFG proposal to an area of knowledge according to its theme and the area of the tutor.

The TFG Commission delegated by the Faculty Board, appoints the members of the courts. For this, it carries out a raffle among the professors of the area of knowledge of the TFG for the election of the President of the Court. The rest of the members of the courts will be drawn among all the professors of the areas of knowledge that they teach in the Veterinary Degree degree.

For the draws, participation in calls for previous courses will be taken into account and ensuring a balanced participation of teachers within each area and taking into account their academic dedication.
