Academic, scientific or professional interest:

University of Valencia graduates in Primary School Education receive a suitable university education, as well as professional training that guarantees they can work as teachers. The solid education they obtain about teaching allows graduates to understand everything related to education and qualifies them to design and develop activities and teaching programmes for students from 6 to 12 years old. The main object of the degree is to contribute to the education of children, helping their personal and social development, and also encouraging their extraordinary capacity to learn, all with the help of educational strategies that are specific to primary education. Students receive a general and specific didactic training in all of areas of knowledge and in all the school disciplines which correspond to the primary stage of education; in the principals of organization and administration of schools; and in the processes of physical, emotional and intellectual development that are specific to the age group.

Worth Noting:

Graduates are qualified to work as primary school teachers, in accordance with current laws.

The laws that regulate these studies state that you must have a C1 level of Spanish and Catalan and a B1 level of a foreign language before graduation. At the University of Valencia, students can choose either English or French.

Students must also complete compulsory professional internships during almost eight months, and are distributed throughout the first, third and fourth academic years. These internships are done in schools within the Valencian education system during the periods and timetables established by the corresponding authorities. This requirement makes it impossible for students to study part-time.

The Degree in Primary School Education and the Degree in Preschool Education share 13 subjects that are worth 84 shared credits in total. This makes studying both degrees easier.

This degree is also given in the private affiliated Florida University Education Centre.
