English in teacher training programmes
Teaching is a profession that is both challenging and satisfying, and surely one of the most important ones for society. Karlstad University is well-known for its programmes in teacher education. English studies are offered as part of these programmes.
At Karlstad University we offer degree programmes for all educational levels, from preschool to upper secondary education. The different degrees require a different amount of credits in English, varying from 15 ECTS credits to 120 ECTS credits, for details please consult the pathway charts to the right.
For information on teacher education programmes, see the teacher education website.
It is also possible to enrol in the teacher training bridging programme, if you have already studied English before. For more information on the program and admission requirements please see the website for the teacher training bridging programme.
In addition to the courses in the teacher programmes, we offer continuing professional development courses for teachers who wish to increase their competence in the subject, or add a new subject to teach in, or learn how to use digital tools in language teaching.
