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.
During the week of September 16-September 21, Dean Genevieva Wanjala, School of Education at Nairobi University visits Linköping in order to plan for a future exhange of students within the Linneaus-Palme program.

Also joining the meeting were the LiU Dean of Educational Sciences, Dr Karin Mårdsjö Blume and International Director Lars Holberg. Per-Olof Hansson from the Department of Engineering and Management is host for the visit and project leader of the Linneaus-Palme program.
