STUDENTS in Murcia will begin their chosen college courses today for this academic year 2014-2015.
An increased 92,917 pupils have enrolled onto college courses for the upcoming educational year, a figure slightly elevated from last year’s records.
The majority of the students will be returning to the classrooms between today and Thursday, depending on which town they are studying at.
Seventeen per cent (16,500) of students will now be able to study their course in two languages, nearly 2,000 more than last year’s figures, although this could increase during the year as more colleges have the facility to teach bilingually.
Due to the importance of a secondary language, the education authority has introduced a system called ‘plus idiomas’ which they will incorporate into eight out of 10 public colleges in the region.
Another goal for this academic year will be to apply new technologies, so students will be able to exchange traditional old fashioned methods of learning with new digital equipment.
Two thousand students will exchange their books and pens for more modern methods utilising computers and tablets.
