About the programme

The Minor in Education will prepare you to teach and to take up a position in the teaching profession. The minor will give you the opportunity to develop didactic and pedagogical skills.

The Minor in Education is equivalent to 30 ECTS, of which half (15 ECTS) are obtained by successfully completing a practical internship in secondary education. It is possible to follow the minor fulltime or part-time. It is also possible to follow individual blocks.

The Minor in Education is intended for students who are in the third year of their bachelor’s programme. One way in which you can follow the programme is during the time allocated for electives, but you can also take it as an additional module over and above your bachelor's programme. This programme is taught in Dutch. Further information can be found on the Dutch version of this website.
