Transnational Education and Training

The Faculty of Education at the University of Tampere is the most popular choice among the teacher education applicants in Finland. Research Assessment Exercise of the University of Tampere (2014), carried out by an international evaluation panel, has acknowledged the high quality of research at the Faculty of Education.

The Faculty of Education trains culturally aware experts in education, who are encouraged to engage in extensive and critical thinking. As a research and learning community, we analyse status of and changes in education and society, and participate in strengthening the civic foundations of society.

The Faculty of Education provides education and training on demand in its areas of expertise according to the framework of internationalisation at the University of Tampere

Values

Our values in research and education include analytical thinking, equality and equal access to education. We value life long learning as the framework of curricula and education design.

Student-centered approach and the latest learning theories as well as teachers' autonomy in making pedagogical decisions are important premises in our education.

We engage in effective working methods to meet the needs of various  learners and help students overcome any difficulties in learning.
