Given an increasingly globalized world, the introduction of multilingual approaches employing CLIL methodology and the spread of the competence-based curriculum, the need for students to be able to communicate in foreign languages (FL) within the education system has made it essential to take a fresh look at teaching and introduce innovative methods into the foreign language classroom. In institutional contexts like schools or universities, innovation in foreign language learning must necessarily involve collaboration between, on the one hand, teachers who are experts in a particular foreign language and, on the other, teachers who are using the foreign language as a vehicle for teaching non-language subjects and/or using it as a medium of communication within international projects.

The Master’s program offered here is intended to help teachers to develop a full range of skills specific to teaching in or about a foreign language, be fully familiar with the challenges of education in a multilingual context, and have the capacity to work as a team with teachers specialised in non-language disciplines.

Two itineraries are available, one focusing on Foreign Language Education (FLE), the other focusing on Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) .

This programme in fact consists of the first block of 30 ECTS credits of the Master’s Degree programme, so once students obtain the Postgraduate Certificate they need only complete modules 6 through 10 to obtain the full Master’s Degree (see the equivalence chart).

Career opportunities

Graduates of these programmes will have professional qualifications appropriate to:
- Teaching foreign languages in primary and secondary education, baccalaureate and vocational training.

- ICLHE (Integrated Content and Language in Higher Education) teaching in university programmes.

- Design and assessment of didactic material intended for publication related to the teaching/learning FLs or CLIL.


▪ Practical placements are carried out at a local educational institution such as a primary or secondary school and consist of two phases. In the first phase, the student will be a participant observer in the classroom, whereas in the second phase they will be required to manage the classroom on their own, initially under supervision and then independently. Students doing practical placements will be supervised by a tutor from the UAB programme and a teacher from the centre where the placement is occurring. All placements take place under the auspices of the Catalan government’s Department of Education.
The practical placement will be assessed as follows:
Placement portfolio as assessed by the UAB tutor: 45%
Evaluative report by the tutor at the educational centre where the placement was carried out: 45%
Public presentation of the portfolio as jointly assessed by the UAB tutor and the placement coordinator: 10%.
