About the programme

The doctoral programme in Teacher Education and Educational Sciences is designed to educate future top education professionals. The main aim of the programme is for future doctoral candidates to gain a deeper understanding of the theoretical foundations and methodological concepts in teacher education and educational sciences. The programme pays particular attention to the interconnectedness of teaching, learning and assessment, as these are key factors in the development of relevant competences. Doctoral students will be trained to independently develop new knowledge in these areas and to address the most challenging professional and scientific questions in an interdisciplinary approach.
