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.
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).
Linköping University is taking the lead among Swedish universities in the academic field of education, according to a new ranking by the prestigious QS World University Ranking. LiU is now ranked as one of the world’s top 100 universities in the field.
Professor Eva Reimers, Department of Social and Welfare Studies, Linköping University, is invited as a guest professor at Saitama University, Japan in the month of March.
