Access to each of the specialisations of the Master's Degree in Secondary Education Teaching of the Universitat de València is ranked according to the following priority levels based on the student profile:

 

Priority level 1:            Qualifications that grant direct and preferential access to the specialisation.

Priority level 2:            Qualifications that grant direct access to the specialisation, only if the number of places available is greater than the number of places demanded from preferential qualifications.

Priority level 3:            Qualifications that grant access to the specialisation, only if the number of places available is greater than the number of places demanded from qualifications in the previous priority levels, and only if candidates pass an entrance test.

 

Applications will be ranked according to the priority of the qualification granting access. If the number of places available is greater than the number of places demanded from priority 1 qualifications, the remaining places may be filled by candidates from priority 2 qualifications and, if the number of places available is still greater than the number of places demanded from priority 1 and priority 2 qualifications, the remaining places may be filled by candidates from priority 3 qualifications who pass an entrance test.

 

The entrance test will be specific to each specialisation. It will be designed to prove mastery of the disciplinary knowledge in the master's degree specialisation of choice and will address topics specific to it.

The above list refers to current EHEA bachelor's degrees (grau), but it extends to official university qualifications awarded under previous regulations: pre-EHEA bachelor’s degrees (llicenciatura), 5-year engineering degrees (enginyeria), 5-year architecture degrees (arquitectura), diplomas (diplomatura), 3-year engineering degrees (enginyeria tècnica) and 3-year architecture degrees (arquitectura tècnica). Furthermore, there is no catalogue that establishes the name of qualifications and, therefore, the above list shall be understood as applying to qualifications with different names but equivalent content to those in the table.

 

 

Admission to each specialisation follows the priority levels established in the access requirements.

 

Candidates within the same priority level will be ranked according to their academic record (from 1 to 10).

 

Student profile

 

Order ECI/3858/2007, of 27 December, establishes that admission to this master's degree requires accreditation of competences and skills relevant to the specialisation of choice, which will be verified by means of a test specially designed by universities, from which holders of a university degree corresponding to the specialisation will be exempt. Furthermore, access to the master's degree requires demonstrable knowledge of a foreign language equivalent to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, according to Recommendation No. R (98)6 of the Committee of Ministers to Member States of 17 October 2000.

 

The table of equivalences approved by the Governing Council and in force at any given moment at the Universitat de València shall apply for accrediting proficiency in a foreign language at level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

 

Table of equivalences for accrediting L2 languages at the UV (PDF)

 

Proficiency at level B1 will be recognised for students who have successfully completed upper secondary education (batxillerat) in a bilingual school. Also, for those who have passed more than 40 credits taught in a foreign language and for those who have successfully completed more than 40 credits of a university course of study abroad taught in the foreign language (approved by the Governing Council on 28 March 2013. ACGUV 45/2013).

 

- Students who cannot accredit level B1 in the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) can obtain the level certificate by passing the Foreign Language Proficiency Accreditation Test (PACLE), organised by the Language Centre of the University of Valencia.

 

The bilingual nature of the Valencian education system requires that future teachers be proficient in our two official languages. Accordingly, students must accredit knowledge of Catalan at C1 level or higher before they can be issued their master's degree certificate.

 

Candidates from foreign educational systems whose mother tongue is different from Spanish must also accredit a C1 level of Spanish before they can be issued their master's degree certificate.
