Program description

Master's Degree in Bilingual Education

This program responds to the need to train qualified professionals in compulsory non-university education, who need to strengthen their language competence and adapt to new social needs and the demands of both public and private bilingual education centers.

The master's degree includes an educational stay in the United Kingdom, with the aim of delving into an area related to the program's contents (CLIL materials development, evaluation, special needs and bilingualism, etc.), an essential point for professional development in bilingual environments.

Admission requirements

  • Have an official Spanish university degree, or another degree issued by an institution of higher education of the European Higher Education Area that grants access to Master's studies in the country issuing that degree.
  • Graduates of educational systems outside the European Higher Education Area may access without the need for the homologation of their degrees, after verification by the University that they accredit a level of training equivalent to the corresponding official Spanish university degrees, and that they grants access, in the country issuing their degree, to postgraduate education.
  • The access by this means will not imply, in any case, the homologation of interested party's previous degree, nor its recognition for other purposes than that of taking the Master's studies. In cases where the homologation of any degree, diploma or study obtained abroad for access to the University is required, Antonio de Nebrija University may conditionally admit students who accredit having submitted the corresponding application for its homologation while the procedure is resolved.
  • In the case of students with special educational needs derived from disability, the need for possible curricular adaptations, itineraries or alternative studies will be assessed.

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.
