Professors and lecturers who make good teachers
The teaching team in the Faculty of Education consists of professionals who train future teachers using the most innovative methodologies. They are also involved in important research activities both inside and outside the university. Direct contact with professional practice allows our professors and lecturers to transmit a comprehensive, multidisciplinary and human overview of the reality in the sector to students.
UNESCO, via its 2015 report "Rethinking Education", and the EU, via its Europe 2020 Strategy, have made a firm commitment to inclusive education.
A commitment that the Government of Catalonia's Ministry for Education has implemented via Law 12/2009 of 10 July that recognises the need to adapt education to cater for the diversity of students and achieve greater equality of opportunity.
Against this backdrop, UIC Barcelona aims to provide crosscutting training to the teachers of the future via the double degree in Primary Education and Psychology. The combination of these two degrees will enable you to understand the aptitudes and attitudes of students and how they behave in the classroom, interact with their environment and learn.
It will also teach you how to support your fellow teachers and external professionals, which will improve the standard of education given and the development and learning of each student.

What is the Aptitude Test?
The Personal Aptitude Test (in Spanish, “PAP”) is a compulsory test in order to enter Pre-Primary and Primary Education Bachelor's degrees in all the universities within the Catalan university system. It consists of two tests that evaluate communicative competence and critical reasoning and logical-mathematical competence.
Why do I need to take the Personal Aptitude Test?
As a teacher, a sense of vocation is essential, because you will become an example to follow in terms of attitudes and values, you will educate and teach people who will become the society of tomorrow. However, it is also crucial to show that you have the necessary skills to become a teacher. It is essential to pass this test, as well as the Spanish national university entrance exams (PAU), in order to be able to enter the Education Bachelor's Degrees.
How is the Personal Aptitude Test scored?
The final mark for your Personal Aptitude Test will be a Pass or a Fail.
You pass the test if you gain a final mark equal to or above five out of ten. This final mark is calculated from the average for the two tests. Once you have passed it, the Personal Aptitude Test is valid indefinitely.
When can I sit the Personal Aptitude Test?
There are two sittings:
- Saturday, April 10
- Friday, July 16 (special sitting)
You can find out more about the enrolment dates and process here.
The results of the Personal Aptitude Test are published on the government site Portal d'accés a la universitat.
Who has to take the Personal Aptitude Test?
- Spanish Baccalaureate students.
- Spanish Higher Level Vocational Training students.
- Students coming from any education system other than Spain.
- Students who are entering the Education Bachelor's degrees through an academic record transfer.
- Students who are applying to university via the specific entrance exams for 25s, over 40s or over 45s.
- Students who, having sat the Spanish national university entrance exams (PAU) exams or the specific entrance exams for over 25s or 45s before 2017, have not met the requirements of the Personal Aptitude Test set out for pre-enrolment in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
Who is exempt from taking the Personal Aptitude Test?
- Students who have passed their PAP tests (personal aptitude tests) in 2017, 2018, 2019 or 2020.
- Students from years prior to 2017 who met the PAP test criteria as set out for pre-registration at university in 2014, 2015 and 2016*.
- Holders of a university degree or equivalent.
If I fail the Personal Aptitude Test in April, can I take it again in July?
You can take the test as many times as you like. However, please bear in mind that if you pass it in the special sitting in July, you will not have your place reserved for the programme chosen in your pre-enrolment in June. However, if you have taken the entrance exams to study at the UIC Barcelona Faculty of Education, you have passed them and you have reserved a place, we will keep your place for you until you find out the results of the July Personal Aptitude Test.
How can I study for the Personal Aptitude Test?
You need to study for the exam individually, using the test models available on the website Universitats.gencar.cat. You can also find out here how we can help you from the UIC Barcelona Faculty of Education.
