Keywords: Beliefs on the practical teaching | Future primary teachers | Changes in beliefs | Practicum

The research that we carry out seeks to identify and to report on the beliefs that Primary Education and Physical Education students of the Granada University have about the university practical training, before and after their immersion in the field experiences. We also want to confirm if some change or alteration in their previous beliefs takes place during their practicum. From the results obtained through statistical processing applied to the data we can conclude that, in general, students, before and after their practicum, maintain a positive attitude toward most of the statements in the inventory. The comparison carried out also reveals that going through the experience of the practicum makes them modify, alter or reconsider some of their beliefs on practical teaching.
