  This study programme will not be continued; new students will not be admitted. You can refer to the corresponding current study programme. .

The Degree in Primary Education is one of the programmes included in RD 1393/2007 of 29th October , Chapter III, Art. 12.9, as it qualifies graduates to work in a regulated professional activity in Spain. The conditions it fulfills are set out in the Resolution of 17th December 2007 from the Secretary of State for Universities and Research and Order ECI/3857/2007 of 27th December whereby the requirements for verification of official university titles that qualify graduates for Primary School Teaching are established. It is, therefore, an essential degree in order to work as a teacher of children aged 6-12 in the Spanish education system.

This programme fundamentally aims to train future teachers in primary school education. Society today requires qualified professionals for the teaching profession who not only pass on knowledge, but who are also able to transmit values and attitudes through their teaching methods. In this sense, and in very general terms, students will need to acquire:

  • Cross-cutting skills that include core, personal, interpersonal and systemic skills.
  • Socio-psycho-pedagogical skills linked to learning and personal development, education processes and context, and society, family and school life.
  • Didactic and disciplinary skills linked to the science of teaching and specific knowledge in the different primary school curriculum areas: experimental sciences, social sciences, mathematics, languages (Catalan, Spanish and English), music, plastic and visual arts, and physical education.

Finally, students will also need to attain practical skills related to all of the above.
