The Educational Master’s degree programmes of the University of Groningen prepare students to become fully qualified teachers in schools for secondary education. The main field of activity of fully qualified teachers is upper secondary education at the level of pre-higher education. To enter an Educational Master’s degree programme, students must have obtained a Research University’s Bachelor’s degree in the subject they wish to teach.

Starting from academic year 2010/2011 the University Centre for Learning and Teaching also offers students the possibility to participate in an international master programme that is offered together with eight European partner universities. Students within this program will do 30 ECTS at their home university and 30 ECTS at partner universities in two different countries. Foreign students from these partner universities can do part of their teacher education in Groningen. For Dutch students, the European Educational Master programme leads to obtaining a fully Dutch qualified teacher’s degree for secondary education, in the field the student is educated in at Research University level.
