The doctoral programme in Teacher education and Educational science is aimed at highly trained future experts in the larger area of education. The fundamental aim of the programme is to create highly trained experts and future scientists who will understand the basic concepts of theoretical and methodological approaches in the area of teacher education and educational science. The programme devotes special attention to the interrelationship of teaching, learning, and the assessment processes, since these are the key factors in developing the appropriate competences. Graduates of the programme will be capable of creating new knowledge in the area and solving scientific problems with an interdisciplinary approach.

The doctoral programme in Teacher Education and Educational Science is organized by the Faculty of Education with the cooperation of recognized experts in related areas from other faculties of the University of Ljubljana. The programme offers two study orientations: in the scientific area of Teacher Education and in the scientific area of Educational Sciences, both structured modularly. The programme curriculum consists of student research work and organized forms of study, and it comprises obligatory modules, study orientation modules, and elective modules. In its content, the doctoral programme follows the approach defined by the European TUNING project and therefore fulfils all the criteria for international exchange in Europe.
