Adaptation course

Adaptation course to the Undergraduate Degree

Through the Adaptation Course we try to respond to the needs of many professionals in the field of Primary Education, offering a training that complements their initial associate's degree.

RD 861/2010 establishes that "In those cases in which the university intends to offer a specific curricular design (bridge or adaptation course) for access to undergraduate studies by graduates of the previous ordinance, all the aspects related to that curricular design, as well as those related to the criteria and conditions of access to it must be specified."
In addition, the 7th Assembly of the Conference of Deans and Directors of Teaching and Education, meeting in Granada in 2009, stated:
“The Conference notes the existing demand on behalf of those holding an associate's degree to access the Undergraduate Degree, and therefore urges the Ministry of Education to give clear and common operational criteria, urgently, for the adaptation of Associate Degrees to Undergraduate Degrees. With regard to the undergraduate degrees of Early Childhood and Primary Education, the Conference has already adopted an agreement on the adaptations of Associate Degrees to Undergraduate Degrees of Teaching Early Childhood Education and Primary Education.”
Under this Royal Decree, a bridge or adaptation course will be organized, in a distance learning modality, to facilitate access to the Undergraduate degree courses by those holding an associate degree according to the previous ordinance, whose aspects related to the curricular design, criteria and conditions of access are described below.

Planning of adaptation course to the Bachelor's Degree:

  • Subjects:
  • 6 ECTS | Educational methodology, innovation and research
  • 6 ECTS | Attention to linguistic and cultural diversity
  • 6 ECTS | Strategies for oral and written communication in English
  • 6 ECTS | The curriculum in primary education
  • 6 ECTS | | ICTs in Primary Education
  • 6 ECTS | Practicum

  • Total: 50 ECTS
  • Access requirements:

  • To be have an associate's degree in Teaching with Foreign Language specialization.
  • To be have an associate's degree in Teaching with Music Education specialization.
  • To be have an associate's degree in Teaching with Physical Education specialization.
  • Have a B2 level of the CEFR in the English language for the bilingual modality.

This program will be taught in the distance learning modality to facilitate access to the course to all active professionals, as well as associate degree graduates in teaching who do not live in the community of Madrid.

This Adaptation Course aims to respond to the needs of many professionals in the field of Primary Education, offering training that complements their initial associate's degree and allows them to access postgraduate studies.

That is why training is offered in three basic subjects: Educational methodology, innovation and research, Interculturality and education and ICTs in primary education, as well as specific training in English, with the subject Strategies for oral and written communication in English I.

The 6 credits corresponding to the Practicum can be recognized if there is proof of having worked professionally in the corresponding field for at least 2 months, since Royal Decree 861/2010, of July 2, in article 6 Recognition of credits, indicates that "The accredited professional and work experience may also be recognized in the form of credits that will be computed for the purpose of obtaining the official degree, provided that said experience is related to the competences inherent to said degree.".

In no case will the Final Research Project (14 credits) be recognized, in accordance with Royal Decree 861/2010, of July 2, which in article 6 establishes that "in no case will the credits corresponding to the Final Research Projects be recognized."
