The European Higher Education Area has marked a milestone in Higher Education. Consequently, teaching methodologies have experienced several transformations and their focus has turned to the incorporation of ICT in socio-educational environments. Thus, it can be stated that digital competences development is a paramount element for university students’ training, as they need to be digitally competent. This study explores the degree of knowledge and training about digital competences that students pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate studies in Educational Sciences have. The questionnaire "University Student’ Basic Digital Competences 2.0" (COBADI/ Trademark 2970648) was applied to students of Early Years Education, Primary Education, Social Education and postgraduates of the Master’s Degree in Secondary Education from the Universities of Seville and Huelva (Southwestern Spain). Results show that digital competence in university students needs to be improved. There is, therefore, a definite need for transversal and organized training allowing students to master digital contexts efficiently.
