la carrera de maestro de primaria

I'd guess that this means
same as primary school teacher's education, but not 100 % sure. Gracias :)

    Hello Louise.

    Yes, it may be referring to the years of education at the university to get a degree for primary school teacher. However, it may also be referring to the occupation, the profession itself, as primary school teacher: the career.

    Probably the context would resolve this question. Could you provide it?

    Yes, here is the whole sentence: Entre las razones del éxito se suele destacar la selección de los jóvenes más brillantes y motivados para estudiar la carrera de maestro de primaria: solo 10 % de los aspirantes consigue entrar.

    Thank you!

    In the U.S., you might say it this way:
    ...to study to be an elementary school teacher...
    ...to major in Elementary Education...

    You're welcome.
    I agree with fenixpollo. It's referring to the education, not to the career.
