Degree in Primary Education

240 credits - Faculty of Education

For admission to the Early Childhood and/or Primary Education degree programmes, as well as the double degree in Early Childhood and Primary Education, preference will be given to those who pass the personal aptitude test (PAP_EDU).

Below are the main data and benchmarks, as well as the results of the satisfaction surveys for the degree programme, which are periodically analysed and monitored by the centre administrator, the head of studies and the corresponding quality assurance commissions, with a view to promoting the ongoing improvement of the programme.

Places 240 240 240 240 240 150

New students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning for the first time. They may have recognised credits or not.

New SIIU students: these students are starting their studies from the beginning, registering on a programme for the first time and, in accordance with SIIU criteria, may have fewer than 10 credits (for a Master's) or 30 credits (for an undergraduate programme) recognised. This set of students may also be referred to as the optimum new entry group. 

Registered students: these students have an active registration on a programme for an academic year. This set of students may also be referred to as the total student population.

  • Registration reservations are not included (due to the students awaiting a place at another university or credit recognition)
  • Registration cancellations are not included
  • Students with unpaid debts are not included

Graduates: these students have passed (passed or accredited) all credits required for the degree programme and have, therefore, finished their course regardless of whether they have requested their degree certificate be issued or not.

Average duration 4,59 4,59 4,59 4,59 4,50 4,50

The average length of studies measures the average number of years that students take to graduate. The reference population is the optimum group.

Academic performance rates

Graduation and drop-out rates in relation to the entry cohort

 

Data and description

2014-15 2015-16 2016-17 2017-18 2018-19
Graduation Rate 62 % 66 % 66 % 72 % 74 %
Drop-out Rate 24 % 32 % 28 % 25 % -

Programme drop-out rate: the percentage of students from a new entry cohort in an academic year who fail to finish their programmes within the timeframe set out in the curriculum, or an additional academic year, and do not enrol for the planned last year on the programme or subsequent academic year. New full-time students are the reference cohort.

Graduation rate (RD 1393/2007): the percentage of students from a new entry cohort who finish their programmes within the timeframe set out in the curriculum, or an additional academic year. New full-time students (SIIU) are the reference cohort.

 

Graduate efficiency rate in relation to the graduating class

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23
Graduate Efficiency Rate 93 % 94 % 93 % 92 % 92 % 94 %

The efficiency rate is defined as the percentage ratio between the total number of credits passed by students throughout the registered programme from which they have graduated, and the total number of credits they effectively registered for. The reference population is the optimum group.

Degree success and performance rates

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23

Performance Rate 86 % 88 % 90 % 93 % 90 % 91 %

Success rate: the percetage ratio between the number of passed credits and the number of credits taken for assessment.

Performance rate: the percentage ratio between the number of credits passed and the number of credits registered for.

Satisfaction of groups involved

Satisfaction index

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23
Student satisfaction 2,76 2,76 2,73 - 2,79 2,68
