The Faculty of Education and Society is one of the largest teacher training facilities in Sweden with 3 800 full-year-students and 300 employees. The faculty offers vocational training in the fields of schooling but also of culture, leisure and sports.
The city’s population of 300,000 is represented by a culturally diverse mix of more than 170 nationalities. This diversity with an inherited international and multicultural quality is further reflected by the faculty and its student body.
Teacher education covers the whole educational spectrum, from pre-school teaching to the upper secondary school/high school levels with four different exams: the preschool teaching, basic teaching, specialist teaching and vocational teaching. The faculty also offers sports science programs, education in professional guidance counseling, programs in special needs and other forms of training. The faculty offers training at the basic, advanced and research levels, as well as education for continuing professional development and customised professional competence courses. Since 2010, the faculty has been authorised to award doctoral research degrees in the fields of Sport Sciences and Science of Education.
Close collaboration with a great number of partner schools and organisations - including several international schools - makes it possible for international students to finish internships and/or to include extended periods of educational experience as parts of their studies in Malmö.
