Clarifications about competencies model

The competences model of the URV has been updated. The new model consists of the specific competences inherent to each degree, and the transversal competences, common to all degrees of the URV (which substitute the previous transversal and nuclear competences).

The current specific and transversal competences of this degree can be seen on this page. Even though the nuclear competences are also listed, these no longer apply, as they are integrated within the transversal competences.
