Mälardalen University may award preschool teacher degrees

May 31, 2011 | Student

The Swedish National Agency for Higher Education decided today to grant Mälardalen University degree-awarding powers for preschool teacher education, which means that we can offer the programme as planned in the autumn.

In the accompanying statement, the Agency writes that “the scientific competence among the teachers is good, and a sufficient number of teachers have a doctoral degree in preschool pedagogy”.

Despite the uncertainty concerning the degree-awarding powers, many students have chosen to apply for the programme at Mälardalen University, and the planned number of students has been reached by first-choice applicants alone.
