The Faculty of Education at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences offers a variety of Bachelor and Master programmes in the field of teacher education and pedagogics. It has almost 6000 students and circa 300 staff members.
The multicultural and international atmosphere of Amsterdam is an integral part of teaching and learning at the SoE. The curricula at the SoE provide both Dutch students and visiting international students with an international outlook on teaching. The SoE has a strong focus on urban education and maintains close ties with schools and pedagogical institutions in the city of Amsterdam.
The internationalisation policy of the SoE is closely linked to its urban and multicultural profile. The SoE seeks cooperation with European higher education institutions with a similar profile.
