Due to the importance of competences in the European higher education area and the objective to adapt competences to the Bologna Declaration, our department during the last nine years program to test and evaluate the competences of students with the aim of knowing more on competences, present and evolution by the time.

This article reflects the analysis and compares the first study in course 2009/10 to this course 2015/2016 and the evolution of these competences in project management using an ICT application called Cycloid. This process evaluates thirty concrete competences both personal and social that can be further aggregated into six main groups. This model identifies a generic work role, namely project manager, a person ready to plan, organize, manage, and evaluate complex works or projects that need frequent and solid interaction with other people in order to complete the entire project. In these circumstances students are adequate to evaluate personal projects.

The objective of this paper is to explore competence assessment and development of a group of students from the University of Talca (Chile) coursing a Postgraduate on Design visiting the University of Girona, Spain for a semester during the course 2015/2016. We test their present and desired competence levels and we compare them to a similar group from the academic course 2009/2010 and 2013/14 in order to capture a dynamic perspective.

After these competences studies and analysis of our research group during the last years, conclude that students come to University of Girona with a better attitude and preparation. Their will and wish to learn change a lot, and their layout to work hard and learn are reflect with their marks and assistance to the course.

The aim of this analyse is to answer main question:
Q1-which competence change in a analysis during this last courses.
Q2- what changes are introduced to their studies in their university.

Preliminary results show that for this course, students have a creative tension in stress tolerance and language proficiency, the same as the previous studies but in a lowest level. The interest is the proposal corrective actions adopted and future proposal activities.
