Training at the URV 2015
During the last academic year the Universitat Rovira i Virgili initiated a new process for reporting its activities to the university community and society as a whole. The process is sectorial and distributed across the various meetings of the Governing Council and culminates with the rector's annual report to the Senate. In line with this, the present document reports on the 2015-16 academic year and outlines the main results of the URV's training activities in its bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees and its lifelong learning programme, these activities enabling the URV to comply with one of its primary missions; that is, the training of individuals. The report provides a representative sample of statistics and indicators with the aim of supporting the institution's academic staff and governing bodies in their analysis and evaluation of the registration figures and the academic results of the students following the various aforementioned courses.
The document is divided into six parts, one for each level of study (bachelor's degree, university master's degree, doctoral degree and lifelong learning), one regarding the URV's positioning within the Catalan public university system and a final section outlining the report's conclusions. Each of these sections contains important data regarding student demand, the registration figures and the academic results.
The data on the courses offered, student demand and registration refer to the 2015-16 academic year and the data on academic results and graduates refer to the 2014-15 academic year. It should be borne in mind, however, that this information is still provisional at the time of writing (30 September 2015) due to the fact that students can still register for bachelor's and master's degrees after this date.
The data for the master's degrees do not include inter-university master's degrees coordinated by other universities who, in accordance with the agreements signed, are responsible for registering students on those programmes.
Also excluded are the data regarding pre-registration for the Master's Degree in Training for Teachers of Compulsory Education and Upper Secondary Education, Professional Training and Language Teaching because this is carried out centrally for all universities by the University's Admissions Office. Regarding doctoral degrees, the report only contains data for the 2014-15 academic year because the registration period for the 2015-16 academic year will remain open until 10 May 2016, which means that the data for this period are still very much incomplete. Finally, the data for lifelong learning refer to activities started during 2015 that are still ongoing.
The report's principal source of information is SINIA, in particular regarding the data on admissions, registration and academic results. Other sources of information are the URV's Admissions Office, for data regarding student demand for courses (1st allocation of places in June), the employment survey by AQU Catalunya and the Information System on Universities and Research in Catalonia (UNEIX), for the analysis of the URV's relative position within the Catalan Public University System.
