Facultad de Educación

Academic year 2019-2020

Learning in English is a choice increasingly demanded by our home students as well as by students taking part in mobility programmes. They are European students as well as from other Universities all over the world whose integration contributes to the rich cultural diversity of our classrooms.

Bilingual education is a priority for Campus Mare Nostrum and, as a member, for the University of Murcia too. As International Excellence Campus, our goal is to reach teaching excellence and to contribute to the growth and the implementation of the knowledge society. The bilingual group in Primary Education is the first CMN bilingual degree and it is a response to the required training needs of Primary Education teachers' in the new social context. Language skills are nowadays essential and teachers should be ready to teach in English and to communicate with the international community in multicultural contexts. Moreover, this group will allow students who attended the Bilingual Secondary Education to continue to benefit from a quality university education in English.

Our faculty understands that students joining this bilingual group are the potential and natural candidates for the MENTION IN ENGLISH AS A FOREIGN LANGUAGE. These students start from a recognized level of English and, in joining studies in this language, they show their compromise with self improvement while making evident their commitment with school education in English.

 

What are the advantages of studying in the Bilingual Group?

Students taking part in the bilingual group will have their grades weighted by adding 2 additional points to their final qualifications, so that their access to the MENTION IN ENGLISH AS FOREIGN LANGUAGE is made easier for these students than for those who completed their studies in Spanish.

To this very purpose, students in the bilingual group will benefit from a specific aid scheme to take part in training and language courses, certifying exams and specific courses for the teaching in English in this University.

The participation in this project will be set out in the European Suplement to the students' degree and, when appropriate, in the transcript of records.
