Academic, scientific or professional interest:

University of Valencia graduates in Preschool Education receive a suitable university education, in addition to 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 teaching activities and programmes for students from 0 to 6 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 learning. Students receive a general and specific didactic training in all of areas of knowledge and in all the school disciplines that correspond to the preschool stage of education. In addition, they are taught the principals of school organization and administration; and also, the processes of physical, emotional and intellectual development that are specific to the age group.

Worth Noting:

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

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

Students must also complete compulsory professional internships that last 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 to study part-time.

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