School of Education: tailor-made programme

Exchange programme

The School of Education offers a tailor-made programme which gives exchange students the possibility to choose their own courses in consultation with both their home university and the programme coordinators of the School of Education.

Students can choose courses from all Dutch taught Bachelor’s programmes within the School of Education. Students who do not have a good command of the Dutch language can choose courses from our Teacher Education English programme.

The School of Education provides Bachelor's degree programmes in Primary as well as Secondary, Vocational, and Adult Education. We train our students for teaching in primary education, the junior years of higher general and pre-university secondary education, and the entire curriculums of pre-vocational and vocational secondary education. The design of the various teacher training programmes is quite similar but, naturally, they differ in knowledge areas, training schools (internships), instructional methods, and educational theories.

In the exchange programme it is possible to choose courses from the different programmes. We can advise you in making these choices in order to compose an instructive programme.
Note that most courses are in Dutch, in the language department it is possible to follow lessons in English, French or German.
