Grado en Educación Primaria (Bilingüe)


El inglés, la llave de tu presente y futuro

Actualmente, una de las herramientas imprescindibles en la comunicación internacional, y la llave que abre las posibilidades para encontrar un buen puesto de trabajo tanto en España como en el extranjero, es el inglés. En nuestro país, un 80% de las ofertas laborales ya requieren un excelente dominio de este idioma y, en muchas ocasiones, este criterio se impone por encima de otros como el expediente o la trayectoria profesional.

Es por ello que en la Universidad Europea del Atlántico los alumnos de todos los grados, a partir de segundo año estudian inglés como asignatura obligatoria, y a partir de tercer año además cursan asignaturas completas en esta lengua.

Para que el nivel previo de inglés no suponga una barrera de acceso a los estudios, UNEATLANTICO proporciona una enseñanza personalizada, en especial durante el primer curso, para que todos los alumnos alcancen unas competencias lingüísticas suficientes en inglés con las que superar con éxito las asignaturas de la carrera.

De este modo, independientemente de su nivel de inglés de partida, con un plan de apoyo global basado en tutorías, materiales específicos y grupos de trabajo muy reducidos, el alumno puede seguir las clases en un sistema bilingüe español/inglés de forma progresiva y al finalizar habrá adquirido competencias bilingües para el ejercicio de su profesión.


Once the student has completed the program, they will obtain a GRADUATE DEGREE IN PRIMARY EDUCATION as issued by the European University of the Atlantic.
