Exchange students

Courses at the Faculty of Education

The courses offered for exchange students are presented in the 'Courses for Exchange Students 2016-2018'. Those courses are part of the international Master's degree programme in Learning, Learning Environments and Educational Systems.

Do pay attention to the fact that in some cases the grading is done on a pass-fail -scale and it is not possible to get a numerical grade. The grading scale for each course is explained in the 'Courses for Exchange Students 2016-2018'.

Exchange student applying to the Faculty of Education are expected to have at least 2 years of academic studies in Education before their exchange period begins.

NB! The School Experience is open only to the exchange students of the Faculty of Education who study to become teachers.

Do take into consideration that if you choose courses outside the Faculty of Education the course timetables might overlap. In such cases you might have to drop some of the courses. There is no fixed schedule for the hours to be done at school for the School Experience. The exchange student agrees with the teacher of the class or teachers of different classes when to do the hours required for the School Experience.
