Community Service is one of the most important elements in the humanistic and professional development of the students in our University. It is an indispensable requirement in order to obtain a professional degree.
Every student must contribute in no less than 6 months and no more than 2 years with 480 hours of community service. This service should be performed after having complete the 60% of the academic credits. All students should assist to an induction course offered by the University in order to prepare them for any social intervention.
