One of the main distinguishing factors of this degree is the double orientation it has and, therefore, the two career profiles of the master's degree: professional and researcher.
The proposal presented in the master's degree maintains blocks of theoretical foundation in educational governance and, in addition, adds three elective subjects that the student will have to take depending on the profile they wish to acquire.
On the one hand, two four-credit subjects on methodology and analysis in the area are offered, in the case of the researcher profile, and, on the other, an eight-credit internship subject, in the case of the professional profile.
In addition, the combination of topics such as information and communication technologies, new methodologies in the teaching-learning process, as well as the organization and internal management of educational centers and organizations, gives it a unique integrating character that brings together the main characteristics necessary to lead these institutions.Read Less

For its part, the admission profile for the Master's Degree in Educational Governance from the Antonio de Nebrija University is defined as follows: university graduate or equivalent (bachelor's and associate's degrees) in Teaching, Pedagogy, Psychology (with a specialization in education) or Psychopedagogy. Likewise, given the transversal nature of the program, students who have completed the Master's Degree in Teacher Training for Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, Vocational Training and Language Teaching, or have the Teaching Aptitude Certificate (CAP), will be able to access the Master's Degree.
In general, the admission documentation must be submitted to the Admissions Department.
Students must provide the originals or certified copies of the documentation submitted within the period established by the University to formalize their enrollment. Any inaccuracy, falsity or omission of the data, statement or document provided by the student in the admission period will entail the impossibility of continuing to exercise the right from the moment in which the University has proof of such facts, proceeding to the cancellation of the admission application submitted and the place awarded, notwithstanding any criminal, civil or administrative responsibilities that may arise.
In order to access the official university master's degrees, it is necessary to submit the following documentation:
In the event that the studies with which the Master's pre-enrollment is accessed are completed in a Foreign Higher Education Institution, both the degree and the academic transcript (grades) must be official and issued by the competent authorities, in accordance with the legal system of the country of origin.
If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places offered, the student's academic record (average grade) will be taken as admission criteria.
Therefore, anyone interested in accessing the studies of the Master's Degree in Educational Governance must present, without exception, their academic record, since the average grade will be what decides their admission to the Master's Degree, in the event that the number of applications exceed the number of places offered.
Once the places are full, in the event that there are more candidates interested in being admitted, they will remain on the waiting list in the event of possible vacancies that may arise before the start of the academic year, and the admission and selection criteria detailed in point 4 will be applied for the rest of applicants.
In addition to the evaluation of the academic merits provided by the candidate (20%), students must carry out a personal interview (75%) and an English level test (5%). The interview, oral or written, will be carried out by the Director of the Program, or those responsible to whom he/she delegates, or by university advisors; this interview is aimed at verifying the suitability of the candidate and his/her profile in accordance with the degree. This is to determine whether the candidate has sufficient motivation, training and knowledge, skills, aptitudes, communication skills, extracurricular activities and future interests necessary to be admitted as a student in the Nebrija University postgraduate courses.
The English level test aims to determine the level of English knowledge of students; a placement test will be applied at the beginning of the studies to assess the candidates' level. The English level test consists of an exam with multiple-choice questions, oral and written comprehension, and use of the language. It will not be necessary for the candidate to take this test if they submit certification that proves knowledge of English at B1 level of the CEFR.
In addition, foreign students whose mother tongue is not Spanish must take a Spanish level test in order to know the students' real level of knowledge of the language. It will not be necessary for the candidate to take the language placement test if they submit certification that proves knowledge of a Spanish language at B2 level of the CEFR. The accreditation of the level will be validated through the official degrees admitted by the table of certificates admitted by ACLES and/or Instituto Cervantes.
In order to access this Admission Process, candidates must have previously accredited that they have a degree in Teaching, Pedagogy, Psychology (with a major or specialty in education), Psychopedagogy, or hold a Master's degree in Teacher Training for Compulsory Secondary Education and Baccalaureate, Vocational Training and Language Teaching, or have the Teaching Aptitude Certificate (CAP).
