This article presents the initial results of a survey on the IT skills of prospective teachers of different teaching programs of the faculty of pedagogy of Dalat university (Vietnam). These students have no academic IT training in their curriculum, so the objectives of this survey were (1) to find out their self-perception about the skills IT they use almost every day but without a specific course, and (2) to identify specific profiles according to the different programs and to make a comparison between them. The survey has been conducted through the Internet, using Google Forms, and the responses were anonymous. The questions were focused on their self-perception on their skills regarding media processing (images, sounds, and videos) and website creation. 72 responses were received among which 70 were valid. The results show that there is not a significant difference between the student’s self-perception skills according to their programs whereas there are differences according to the kind of the media processing skills.
