The Faculty of Educational Sciences


ResearchWhat does research say about the causes of bullying? How do students work in groups?  What do we really know about grades, homework and play?  

You can read about this and much more on our research web about school and education.  The website is aimed particularly for teachers, school politicians and school  officials. Therefore, the site is built as far as possible around concrete keywords like "bullying", "Ethics",  "Rating and assessment", "Leadership”.

Welcome to our research web!

Doktorshatt Around 80 researchers and doctoral students are currently active within the Faculty of Educational Sciences.


The Faculty of Educational Sciences provides a comprehensive teacher training programme and offers postgraduate programmes with opportunities for research.

Teacher training is available for all levels of the Swedish school and pre-school system. Future educators have considerable freedom of choice in subject specialisation and age group. Teacher training draws on a set of courses in general education. Teacher trainees come into contact with local schools from the very start.

Courses and programmes are generally taught in Swedish, although there are a number of courses offered in English which are open to international students.


Opening borders through cooking and discussion

In the newly-started mentor group LIKES, international and Swedish teaching students gather, with their profession and their training as common denominators. Among other things, it has arranged discussion and cooking evenings.

Wrong focus after Pisa

Focus on the pupil, not the frameworks. What’s important is what happens in the classroom. This was the message from Linköping University researchers at a well-attended seminar at the Almedalen Week.

"Don’t you have any rules at all?"

How does the Swedish school system work and how is it different from the school systems and teaching in other countries? This is what exchange students at Linköping University get to find out on the acclaimed course Teaching Practice.
