    When it comes time to complete your teaching practicums, we have partnerships with public, charter and private institutions. In the case of public and charter institutions, the schools must be accredited by the Government of Catalonia's Department of Education. As for private institutions, we establish bilateral cooperation agreements with universities and institutions in and outside Catalonia and abroad.


    The practicums will help you strengthen the competences you have acquired and put theory into practice. Your skills will enable you to observe and carry out a descriptive and interpretive analysis of each context and intervene, first under guidance and then independently, in children's learning.

    How it works

    The teaching practicums are educational in nature and are part of the mandatory Practicum module.

    Practicums are divided into the following subjects:

    • School Practicums I
    • School Practicums II
    • School Practicums III


    The teaching practicums are governed by both legal and internal regulations. Under the legal regulations, an agreement must be signed prior to beginning the practicums. In this agreement we will set out the arrangements and commitments established between the institutions, UIC Barcelona and you. Insurance is included in your enrolment fee.

    The internal regulations lay down the guidelines for each teaching practicum and define the tasks of all those involved: the tutors at the schools, UIC Barcelona and you. These regulations are included in the course guide of each subject.

    Professional opportunities

    The Bachelor's Degree in Pre-Primary Education will enable you to work as a qualified teacher.

    You will be able to teach in government-funded schools, as well as both charter and private schools.

    You may also gain employment in other areas:

    • Publishing companies
    • Resource centres
    • Leisure activities
    • Education departments at museums or non-formal education centres
