The Teacher Education Programme
The Teacher Education Programme is a one-year course for students who have completed the required studies in the Humanities, Social Science or Natural Sciences at University Colleges or Universities. This programme is also offered alongside the subject studies, as part of a five-year education programme.
The Teacher Education Programme (PPU) gives qualifications for work as a teacher in upper primary and lower secondary school (grades 5 - 13 in the Norwegian school system) as well as in adult education. The two major components of the programme are classroom practice and educational and didactic theory. Classroom practice takes place at one of the Department`s Partner Schools in or close to Oslo.
The programme is offered both as a full-time study programme over two terms and as a part-time study programme over three terms. Either way, the program is taught in Norwegian only, and Norwegian skills at profiency level are required to be accepted.
