Information for students

Information and requirements

  • Admission Profile

The recommended entry profile for those wishing to study the Double Degree in Physical Activity and Sport Sciences (CAFYDE) and Primary Education is that of a person interested not only in the practice of sport, but also in the promotion of physical activity as a fundamental element in personal development and well-being and who would like to share this knowledge with others as a coach or teacher of Physical Education, as a sports manager or as a promoter of activities related to sport and health in educational environments or outside of them. It is also very important that the candidate shows an interest in pedagogical training, which is essential in the process of preparing future teachers. If you want to become a teacher, you should have a strong interest in understanding the human being and a reasonable belief that educational intervention, both in formal and non-formal settings, can make a decisive contribution to people's well-being. Furthermore, it would be important to have the conviction that, through the education of future citizens, it is possible to contribute to creating societies that are increasingly fairer, better prepared to face the challenges of the future and more caring. Students should also have a strong desire to commit themselves to achieving an excellent academic education at university level and be characterised by cultural, educational, psychological and social interests.
