Career Opportunities

The Master's Degree in Bilingual Education tries to respond to the growing demand of competent professionals to deliver a bilingual education within the professional sector that is framed by the current context of language learning in Europe. At this time, it is considered essential to strengthen the students' communicative competence in English, a competence that facilitates the monitoring of academic, cultural and economic dynamics, and that offers them employment, mobility and personal growth opportunities. Likewise, the implementation of bilingual programs in all Spanish autonomous communities, in which languages are vehicular languages of instruction and communication, makes it necessary to have teachers who combine appropriate linguistic and methodological preparation.

There are numerous centers interested in hiring staff with the necessary skills for primary and secondary education, and with the communication and teaching skills necessary to teach in the bilingual modality.

Validations and Recognitions

The students' professional and research experience can be validated through a positive assessment of the Admissions Commission of the Master's degree program.

For the purposes foreseen in the current and applicable legislation, with the objective of making the mobility of students effective, it is understood that recognition is the acceptance by the Antonio de Nebrija University of the credits that, having been obtained in some official studies, in this or another University, are computed into different studies for the purpose of obtaining an official degree.

The following credits obtained by the student will be recognized in the new studies:

  • a) Those corresponding to basic training subjects between degrees belonging to the same branch of knowledge.
  • b) Those that are of basic training in the degree that is accessed and come from degrees of other branches of knowledge.
  • c) The credits taken in university education leading to the obtaining of other degrees, referred to in article 34.1 of Organic Law 6/2001, of December 21, on Universities.
  • d) Accredited work and professional experience, provided that this experience is related to the competences inherent to the degree.
  • e) The remaining credits may be recognized by the University taking into account the skills and knowledge associated with the subjects taken by the student and those provided for in the curriculum or that are transversal.

The maximum number of credits of cases c) and d) may not exceed, as a whole, 15% of the total credits that constitute the Curriculum.

Likewise, the transfer of credits implies the inclusion in the official accrediting academic documents the studies taken by each student, of the credits obtained in official courses previously taken, in this or another University, which have not led to the obtaining of an official degree.

Credit recognition must be requested by the student at the time of formalizing their enrollment. Exceptionally and with explicit authorization, a different time period may be established. The student must also pay the fees established for this purpose.

Criteria for the recognition of credits and their justification in cases c) and d)

  • 1.- Regarding credits taken in university education conducive to obtaining other degrees, referred to in article 34.1 of the Organic Law 6/201 of December 21, on Universities, the following criteria will apply:
    • 1.1.- CRITERION No. 1.- The usual criterion of credit recognition will be applied, that is, recognition will be carried out when there is a substantial identity between the competences of the subject studied in the degree of origin and the competences of the subject that is recognized. This criterion is justified by the usual practice in the recognition of university credits.
  • 2.- In the case of recognition by accredited work and professional experience, the following criteria will apply:
    • 2.1.- CRITERION No. 2.- The recognition of credits for accredited work and professional experience will be carried out if said experience is related to the competences inherent to the degree in the subject to be recognized. The accreditation may be based on reports and/or certificates issued by the companies or entities in which the activity was carried out, professional associations, etc. This is justified in the wording of RD 861/2010, which requires the accreditation of that experience, and it seems logical that such accreditation is carried out by third parties.
      The submission of this type of reports and/or certificates that accredit the work and professional experience will be a necessary, but not sufficient, condition for the recognition of these credits, since it will ultimately be the Antonio de Nebrija University that decides whether or not to proceed with the recognition of credits in view of the accreditation presented, in application of current legislation, in the exercise of its university autonomy and in accordance with its internal credit recognition procedure.
    • 2.2.- CRITERION No. 3.- The recognition of credits for accredited work and professional experience, together with those taken in other higher education, will have a maximum limit of 15% of the total credits that constitute this curriculum. This is justified because this is stated in the aforementioned RD 861/2010.
    • 2.3.- CRITERION No. 4.- The credits for professional experience may be recognized taking into account the adaptation of the competences and knowledge acquired, associated with that previous professional experience and those corresponding to the subject to be recognized. In no case will a general recognition of credits be made based on years of experience or any other similar general criteria.
    • 2.4.- CRITERION No. 5.- In the recognition of professional experience, any type of professional experience, distantly related to the competences of the subject whose recognition is requested, will not be admitted, but rather will be recognized only in the case of a good adaptation between those competences and professional practice. Recognition will also be denied if the student’s experience was brief. Therefore, the credit recognition commission will assess at the time of recognition a balance between the characteristics of that experience, where it has been carried out and its duration.

Nebrija University will take special care in the process of credit recognition for professional experience, which will be applied with a restrictive criterion and a clear correlation between experience and recognized competences, for a correct and orderly development of the new legal scenario, and within the framework of the instructions issued by ANECA, both in the verification processes and in view of the accreditation processes of the degrees.

Documentation

Students must present the following documentation to the Courses Secretary:

  • Academic Record (original or certified photocopy) stating the name of the subjects, their type, the number of ECTS credits and the qualification obtained by the student.
  • In the case of the credits mentioned in sections b), c) and e) they must submit the detailed program of the subjects (sealed original or certified photocopy).
  • In the case of the credits mentioned in section d), they must submit the documentation proving professional and work experience.

The University may also request as much additional documentation as it deems appropriate.

The Courses Secretary will send the submitted documentation to the Academic Committee of each department, which will issue the appropriate resolution accepting or denying recognition and/or transfer.

All the credits obtained by the student in official studies taken at any University, the transferred ones, the recognized ones and the ones passed for the obtaining of the corresponding degree, will be included in his/her Academic Record, and reflected in the European Supplement to the Degree, if it is requested. The recognition of the credits in cases c) and d) will not include their grade, so they will not be computed for the purpose of scaling the record.

Documentation and information for the recognition process and sending of an indicative estimate.
Credit recognition is possible through the academic record and professional experience in the case of the Practicum.
Nebrija University will carry out, upon request of the applicant, a previous study of credit recognition without any commitment or cost. For this, it will be necessary for the candidate to submit his/her academic record, together with the curricula of the subjects and their updated curriculum vitae.
