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.
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.
Linköping University has signed an agreement with the National Institute of Education in Singapore for the exchange of students for on-site training.
The Faculty of Educational Sciences, Linköping University, and University of Nairobi were granted 373,308 SEK for a Linnaeus-Palme project starting this year that include teacher and student exchanges (3 students in each direction). Projectleaders are Genevieve Wanjala (University of Nairobi) and Per-Olof Hansson (LIU).
