Second degree teaching qualification

 If you have already obtained a second degree in teaching in the same school subject elsewhere (e.g. at a university of applied sciences or through the educatieve minor) you will receive exemptions for 30 EC in total (Professional in Praktijk 1a + 1b (10 + 10 EC), Pedagogiek 1 (5 EC) and Vakdidactiek 1 (5 EC)).

As a result, your programme will take one and a half year instead of two years.

You will take subject-related science courses at the Faculty of Science ánd courses from the Graduate School of Teaching.

Please note: with a second degree teaching qualification you can only start in August/September and not in February.
