Description

The Bachelor of Education is a four-year programme, which will qualify you to be a teacher for primary and lower secondary levels in Denmark in three subjects. The programme mixes theoretical instruction in teaching subjects and educational studies with practical experiences of teaching. The first year you are to choose between studying to become a teacher of English or German as a foreign language, and the language of instruction is English or German. You will be integrated in a class of Danish students wanting to become teachers of English or German. You will also be studying modules in psychology and education taught in English, as well as participating in the first period of teaching practice at a school. During the first year, you will receive intensive training in the Danish language at the local language centre, planned in cooperation with the college. (Read more about language)

From the second year and onwards you will follow most of the curriculum in Danish; however, there will still be some modules offered in English. There will be educational modules during the 3 years, e.g. teaching skills and classroom management, special needs education, school and citizenship, general education.
Furthermore, you are to choose two more subjects as your teaching subjects, and you can choose among the following subjects: mathematics, science, physics/chemistry, geography, biology, English, German, art, music, home economics, sports, history, social science, religion.

Teacher education in Haderslev has a strong profile in using new technologies in teaching and learning, thus the use of interactive boards is an integrated part of classroom teaching. One of the characteristics for the Danish way of teaching and learning is a friendly and informal atmosphere, which is highly appreciated by our international students. The syllabus is a mixture of lectures, group work, student presentations, and project oriented learning.
