Teacher Education Programme in Primary Education (Preschool Class and Years 1-3) will give you the knowledge and competence needed to teach and interact with pupils' aged 6-9 years. They are curious about their surroundings and filled with the desire to know more.

Fundamental to this programme is a comprehensive view of children's learning, where different subjects are integrated in creative and interesting work models. You will study Swedish, mathematics, English, social studies, science and technology. Within the courses in educational science you will learn about leadership, social relations, group development and conflict management.
