Become a teacher – study and teach in English

Tampere University of Applied Sciences offers a Teacher Education Programme in English.  

Application period is on 8 January to 22 January 2025.

Professional teacher education benefits those who are already in a teaching position as well as future teachers.

The professional teacher education is based on recent research in educational science and applies the principles of participatory pedagogy and methods of exploratory learning. The education provides the pedagogical qualification required of teachers in Finland.

After the studies, you will qualify to work as a teacher in vocational institutions and universities of applied sciences. You can also teach in other institutions depending on your own education and work experience. The studies will give you useful skills in various education-related fields such as education export, HR or coaching.

The professional teacher education programme taught in English is for professionals who wish to teach in English and/or who are not proficient in the Finnish language. The extent of the studies is 60 credits.

The form of studies is blended learning and the studies are organised mostly online. You can study alongside work and complete your studies in 1.5 years (on average). Participation also requires attendance on weekdays.
