About the programme

The BA in Teacher Education at KP offers an open and inviting study environment both academically and socially. The teaching incorporates different methods, including group work, innovative project work, discussions and lectures, and its primary focus is to provide you with the skills to plan both the academic as well as the educational aspects of your future teaching.

The Danish teacher education programme (primary and lower secondary schools) underwent a major reform in 2012/2013, which has significantly improved the academic and professional level, including stricter admission requirements as well as a new programme structure based on flexible modules and a competence-based curriculum.

If you want to become a teacher, you have to be skillful and knowledgeable within your subject area, authoritative, empathetic and compassionate in your actions and most importantly wanting to see others succeed.
