The Programme of Study

Programme

3 years - 180 credits

The programme for future teachers of German, Dutch and English is centred on language proficiency, the didactics of language teaching (Dutch-English), mastery of cultural topics and pedagogy. The specifics of each year’s programme provide a balance between these 4 aspects, ensuring that students develop into independent professionals.

Short duration language study trips in the regions or countries of the target languages are organised and are an integral part of the programme.

Work placements in primary and secondary will give you real opportunities to discover the different facets of being a teacher. They will allow you to learn from the comparison between the theories you have learned and the realities of the profession.
