How can I know my group? / ¿Cómo sé cual es mi grupo?​

English version:

Groups in the Faculty are organized by course and family name

There are several situations: 
1) Courses with four groups (A, B, C or D).
2) Courses with two groups 
     - GADE: Morning (A - A and B would be together), Afternoon (C - C and D would be together)
     - GE: A, B
3) Courses with a single group (courses which are taught in English and in Spanish, some elective courses). 


1) Check the updated document with the distribution of groups by family name. GADE website - GE website

For example, if my family name is ALONSO and I am registered in GADE courses, I will be in group C in first-year courses (Desde AG hasta FE), group C in second-year courses (Desde RI hasta AL), group B in third-year courses (Desde VI hasta CASA) and group B in four-year courses (Desde SANE hasta CORN).

2) Check the level of your course (first-year, second-year, third-year, fourth-year). 

For example, I am registered in G886 Contabilidad financiera (second-year course), so I am in Group C.


3) For each course/level, you will be in a group or another

4) Check whether you have timetable conflicts. If so, you have to ask for a change group. Information here - Solicitud de cambio de grupo (GADE - GE)

Spanish version:

Los grupos en la Facultad de Ciencias Económicas y Empresariales se organizan por curso y apellido. Hay varias situaciones.

1) Asignaturas con cuatro grupos (A, B, C o D).
2) Asignaturas con dos grupos
     - GADE: Grupo de mañana (A, que combinaría A + B), Grupo de tarde (C, que combinaría C + D)
     - GE: A, B
3) Asignaturas de grupo único (que se imparten en inglés o en español o algunas optativas). 


1) Comprueba el documento actualizado con la distribución de grupos por apellido. GADE website - GE website

Por ejemplo, si mi apellido es ALONSO y estoy matriculada/o en asignaturas de GADE, estaré en el grupo C en asignaturas de primero (Desde AG hasta FE), en el grupo C en asignaturas de segundo curso (Desde RI hasta AL), en el grupo B en asignaturas de tercer curso (Desde VI hasta CASA) y en el grupo B en asignaturas de cuarto curso (Desde SANE hasta CORN).

2) Comprueba el año en que se imparte la asignatura (primero, segundo, tercero o cuarto). 

Por ejemplo, estoy matriculada/o en Contabilidad financiera (que es una asignatura de segundo curso), por lo que estoy en el grupo C.


3) Para cada curso/asignatura, estarás en uno u otro grupo.

4) Comprueba si tienes conflicto de horarios. Si es así, tendrás que hacer la Solicitud de cambio de grupo (GADE GE)
