Queen Maud University College of Early Childhood Education (QMUC)
QMUC is a private university college situated in Trondheim, Norway.
It was established in 1947 as an independent
foundation within the Norwegian State Church.
The main aim of the college is to educate teachers
within the field of early childhood education and care (ECEC). We offer several
Bachelor degrees in Early Childhood Education and Care and several
postgraduate courses in topics related to ECEC.
In co-operation with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, we
also offer Master degrees in ECEC.
We put a strong emphasis on research regarding
children and ECEC and participate in national and international research
projects and conferences.
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 pre-school education.
