Internalization at Early Childhood Education/ECE, University of Stavanger/UiS, Norway:
ECE, UiS are working with Internationalization in various ways, and on various levels. Participation in teacher/student exchanges as well as international research group is strongly encouraged by our management.
Most of our activities related to student exchange is within a bachelor level. However, we have recently started an Early Childhood master program and, and students at both levels are encouraged to participate in exchanges during their study.
For incoming international students, we have various courses that offers English speaking teaching. All these are offered during the spring semester.
