Degree in Primary Education to the UAB

The Bachelor's Degree in Primary Education aims to provide basic training needed to work as a teacher of the 6 to 12 year age group in compulsory education. The degree is based on the teaching methods of Rosa Sensat, known throughout the country for her tasks as an educator and teacher. The bachelor's degree aims to train professionals prepared to teach within the context of the Catalan school system.

The degree offers general training with the possibility of choosing from four specialisations: Foreign Languages, Physical Education, Musical Education and Special Educational Needs.

The syllabus includes training in the areas of Education Studies, Psychology, Sociology and Teaching Methods, with a series of work placements done either in primary schools or adult education centres. There is a high demand to enrol in this degree. Ninety per cent of our students complete the degree and 97% of them enter the workforce.

The importance this degree has for the UAB is demonstrated by the fact that it forms part of the Campus of International Excellence's strategic line of action, the Education and Training Cluster which was designed as a space for long-lasting improvements and innovations.
