The beginnings of teacher training in Karlsruhe go back as far as 1757. The University of Education in its present form was established in 1962 and about 3,700 students study here.
It offers degree courses for initial teacher certification for primary and lower secondary school, as well as the European Teacher Course (with a strong CLIL "content and language integrated learning" component) for these school types. In addition, there are several Bachelor's and Master’s degree programmes and a graduate programme leading on to the doctoral level.
From the very first semester, all of the degree programmes offer a high level of integrated practical experience. The profile of the institution as a whole emphasizes European cultural studies, intercultural education, plurilingualism and media education. Hence we work closely with partner universities in many other countries and have frequent exchanges for both students and lecturers.
We invite you to learn more about our University from
a film (in German) produced by a group of students.
