Queen Maud University College work actively to protect children's rights and make children's perspective visible in society.
We put a strong emphasis on research regarding children and early childhood education and care. We participate in national and international research projects and conferences.
We aim to educate competent and reflecting early childhood education teachers and leaders. Our students shall be able to meet children with respect and guide them in their foundation process.
Queen Maud University College is an independent foundation within the Norwegian State Church, established in 1947. Our main subject is bachelor degrees within ECEC. In addition we also offer 4 Master degrees in ECEC, and several smaller study programmes and further education.
Our students are encouraged to travel abroad as exchange students. We find that the best way to broaden the cultural understanding is by studying some time in a different country.
We also welcome foreign students to follow courses at QMUC, to gain knowledge and experience about Norwegian children`s culture, pre-schools and early childhood education.
