DO YOU WANT TO BE A TEACHER?
Written on Tuesday, 24 July 2018 19:00

If you want to be a primary school teacher, you might consider enrolling In the B.Ed. International Teacher Education programme, taught through English, in NHL Stenden University of Applied Sciences.

With the demand for primary teachers at international schools worldwide currently high. It is a superb opportunity to be trained to teach at international schools throughout the world. The programme contains a high level of practical teacher training and n your second and third year, you choose two specialised subjects, attending classes either at NHL Stenden’ s campus in the Netherlands or at one of their partner colleges in Denmark or Norway. Specialised subjects include: Art & Culture; Inclusive Education; Religion & Intercultural Understanding; History & Geography; Science & Technology and Physical Education & Health

In the context of the current teacher shortage in Ireland, and the increasing availability of English-taught programmes in mainland Europe, it is no surprise that the International Teacher programme (ITEPS) at Stenden University of Applied Sciences is gathering a lot of interest from Irish students at the moment. Two of the Irish students currently on the programme share their experience: 

“If your dream is to be an international teacher, studying ITEPS at Stenden will help you realise that dream. A huge bonus of the programme is the many teaching practice periods you will undertake, with the opportunity to travel all over the world. I would recommend studying ITEPS to anyone who has the same dream as me.” (Brian)

“Undoubtedly studying on this programme has been an incredible experience. The staff and  the lecturers have been extremely welcoming and supportive. One aspect of the  course   which I have found quite intriguing, and most welcome, is the power shift between    students and lecturers. The lecturers don’t view themselves as an unquestionable authority. (Jon)”

Application for this programme for entry this year are still being accepted until 15th August. Entry requirements are only six passes at Leaving Cert, two at H4 (they wont look at your points!) Fees and cost of living is lower than Ireland. So, give it a go!

Should you prefer to teach in Ireland, rather than travel the world, you should note that. in accordance with EU Directive 2005/36/EC, people who qualified as teachers in one EU member state, are entitled to have their qualifications recognised in all other member states. This recognition may be granted subject to conditions, including making good any shortfalls. The Teaching Council is the competent authority in Ireland for assessing applications from people who qualified as teachers in other EU/EEA countries, and they require students to complete an Irish language programme. To qualify to teach in Ireland.

If you prefer teaching at international secondary schools, Stenden also offers International Teacher Education for Secondary Schools (ITESS) programme that prepares you for an adventurous career in the rapidly growing world of international secondary schools.

At most Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences, you have a Right To An Education provided you meet their minimum entry requirements (In Ireland, that is six passes at Leaving Cert, inc 2 x H4 and, in the UK, that is 2 A-Levels and 4 GCSEs) These universities suit some students more than the more traditional research universities. Though, of course, there is an academic component, the UAS tend to much more hands-on and practical, with a clear employment focus.

Whats it really like being an Irish student in the Netherlands
Written on Tuesday, 10 April 2018 19:55

 

What's it Really Like Being an Irish Student in the Netherlands?


Sure, EUNICAS is going to tell you how fabulous the education is in the Netherlands. The universities will tell you that too, and how amazing is student life is there! (We challenge you not to enjoy living as a student in the Netherlands!) But the real experts are the Irish students who are studying there already (and there are over 1000 of you already there).

Currently, the university with the most Irish students is University of Groningen. Talk to Irish students there at the U. Groningen Open Day this week (14th April) or log on to the Webinar for Irish students See other Groningen webinars here

The fabulous city of Groningen

Of course, should you be interested in the employment-focused Universities of Applied Sciences, you can meet some Irish students studying in these universities in the Dutch Employment Gateway events in Cork (11th April) https://dutchuniscork18.eventbrite.ie and Dublin (12th April) https://dutchunisdublin18.eventbrite.ie

Find out what Irish students really think!!
