About our facility at Helsingør
We have premises at the ‘Kulturværft’ in Helsingør. The facilities are elegant, with a physical location close to the station, other public transport and close to the town’s wealth of cultural institutions. Then of course, there are the stunning surroundings and great student facilities, including classrooms, study areas, an excellent library, café and food market.
The Teach Education programme here includes a high degree of hands-on practical experience, mentor programme and focus on an understanding of technology.
If you are interested in an academic environment featuring a high degree of closeness, in which you are in action a lot, this may be the programme for you.
Programme content and structure
Based on the same content, scope and structure as the full Teacher Education programme at Campus Carlsberg. More details on programme structure.
The first two years will be spent on your first teaching subject. At this point, you can choose between Danish and mathematics. Apart from the first teaching subject, you will study five modules within basic teaching skills, a practical experience period and a specialist module within innovation and understanding technology.
During the fourth term, you will also start on your second teaching subject. All teaching subjects can be studied at Helsingør. If a sufficiently large number of students choose the same subject, it can be located at Helsingør. Alternatively, you will study a given subject either at Campus Carlsberg or online.
Practical experience and practice collaboration
University College Copenhagen works in close consultation with a number of schools in Helsingør Municipality. One of the schools will be allocated to you as your fixed practical experience placing. These schools undertake a special role in relation to their students. They also open their classrooms for student activities/tests outside their practical experience period. We want to make school laboratories an integrated part of the programme, giving our students the opportunity to get out and observe and take part in all elements of a school life, from teaching to school/home relationships, even outside a practical experience period.
Our practical experience collaboration includes strong focus on innovation and technology. During the first two terms, practical experience runs to the equivalent of 50 lessons, plus participation in the school’s theme weeks.
The practical experience period during the third term is designed to be ‘practical experience +’, i.e. a mix of days spent at the school on practical experience, and days at college. That generates plenty of opportunities to switch between theory and practice, to facilitate an ongoing discussion with lecturers and co-students around actual problems.
One of the specialities of Helsingør is its school mentor scheme. A school mentor is a teacher from the allocated practical experience school linked to a fixed group of students throughout the period (2 years), who will provide counselling on practical experience, take part in the introduction process and also able to teach on the programme on specialist themes.
All students will also be allocated a study mentor. This is a lecturer from the Teacher Education programme who will support you in your studies with interviews, regular feedback and to help you link each element of the programme together.
When do I start?
