COURSE

Working with children in education is one of the most rewarding careers. Everyday teachers are shaping the minds of the future. They are teaching the future generation to be active citizens and create a better world. As an international teacher you are given the opportunity  to travel around the world and explore the many languages, cultures and people this incredible world has to offer, while educating a classroom in the art of being tolerant and open-minded. Every day an international teacher brings the world a little closer together.

 

The Course for International Teacher Education for Primary Schools (ITEps) is a Full-time Bachelor's Degree that spans over 4 years. The course allows you to intern around the world, study a semester abroad and expand your world view.

The Meppel campus is filled with students from all over the world. It incorporates incredible lecturers and motivated students, who all want to explore different cultures and expand their horizons.
