Why it is worth studying at the School of Education
A course at the School of Education takes 10 months – it starts in the third week of August and ends in the third week of June. It is of a unique nature – it is a postgraduate course, yet a full time one, with classes held from Monday through Friday.
SE offers their graduates many advantages, such as the carefully prepared schedule of school internship, individual tutoring, and classes held in small groups with the emphasis on discussion and regular progress analyses. The graduates receive the University of Warsaw diploma and a teacher license for teaching a selected school subject at elementary and secondary schools. They are also covered by a 2-year support program. That innovative course was created in cooperation with a reputable Teachers College Columbia University, New York.
