Pre-school and Compulsory School in Sweden and Abroad

7.5 credits

This course focuses on the Swedish school system in relation to the student’s experiences of some other school system. Democracy is a significant aspect when addressing the school system, in this course. Another significant part of the course is the 5 days of internship. The course involves different assignments combined with a major final assignment. The latter is based on the student’s own empirical work involving an analysis of a school phenomenon. This assignment is presented orally and as a paper. The course is given in English and consists of full time studies during period 1. The course is designed for student teachers.

To get access to schools/preschools in Sweden it is required that you present a certificate from the police when you arrive at your placement.

Extra costs for travel to and from the internship placement can occur

In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
