Social SciencesEducational sciences

The Fast Track Doctoral Program for Teacher Education Students is a newly established program at HU. It is implemented and coordinated as a joint activity by HU‘s Interdisciplinary Centre for Educational Research and its Professional School of Education. The program offers doctoral candidates a research-oriented Master of Education program followed by a two-year doctoral program. Fast Track addresses highly-motivated teacher education students with an outstanding Bachelor's degree and strong interest in teacher education and related fields. During the Master of Education and the doctoral phase the participants in the Fast Track program are expected to attend additional courses and lectures to improve their research skills.


The aim of the program is to supply extraordinary methodological resources for teacher education students to work on for a doctoral degree and to prepare either for an academic career in the field of teacher education or for an high-powered career in the school system. It supports the completion of a Master‘s degree within two years, followed by the completion of a dissertation within another two years. Candidates receive intensive supervision from two senior researchers and have the opportunity to attend special workshops. The program offers opportunities for networking with international researchers associated with the doctoral candidates‘ supervisors and the chance to teach.
