The Degree Final Project consists of the student undertaking an autonomous project under the direction of a tutor, the completion of which is intended to help the students implement the skills that they have gained during their studies and ensure that they acquire the relevant competences associated with their degree.
Each degree has a Final Project Committee that aims, in part, to prepare the necessary guidelines for the organisation and development of this area.
The Degree Final Project is regulated by the Regulations of the Degree Final Project of the Universitat de València, developed by the Specific Instructions for the Degree in Dentistry.
The specific requirements for research projects will differ between disciplines. Always follow the guidelines that you have been given by your department, and check with your supervisor if you are unsure of your departmental guidance.

In order to graduate in a given term, a student must submit the dissertation or thesis by the published deadline for the term. Note that the dissertation submission deadline typically falls before the end of the term. The student must have defended the dissertation or thesis and gained final committee approval before submitting it for archiving. If the committee requires further revisions, the student must request a change to their graduation term from the Graduate College.
