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.
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.
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.
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.
