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.
Teaching is a complex--rather than a technical or complicated—activity. Unless policy, research and practice designed to improve teacher quality “keep teaching complex,” they are unlikely to lead to changes that genuinely enhance students’ learning and enrich their life chances, writes Marilyn Cochran-Smith, Cawthorne Professor of Teacher Education Lynch School of Education, Boston College.
