Are you a student pursuing an early childhood education major? Why not spend a semester at Queen Maud University College of Early Childhood Education? For over 70 years QMUC has been devoted to equipping students with knowledge, skills and tools to be competent and relevant teachers in early childhood education and care institutions. We offer English taught courses at bachelor's and master's level for exchange students.  

At bachelor's level the English taught courses focus on Early Childhood Education and Care in the Norwegian context, while the master's courses focus on arts education.

This is what some of our former exchange students say about studying at QMUC:

"I loved practical training! Hearing about it and actually experience it is completely different", 
Lisa Eeckhout, Belgium
"We were prepared for practice. It was good to have discussions in class and know the framework plan", Inês Cruz, Portugal 
"I liked EVERYTHING about the exchange program. Queen Maud University College staff members were supportive and a caring mentor made it a worthwhile and unforgettable experience.", Jieun Kim, Australia 

In addition to English taught courses, Queen Maud University College of Early Childhood Education also offers bachelor's degree programmes and master's degree programmes, as well as further education courses. The teaching is mainly given in Norwegian and in order to be admitted to a study programme, the applicant will have to prove advanced knowledge of Norwegian.
