Education degrees abroad

Education degrees predominantly focus on teaching, which can open up many opportunities and occupations to international students. The more specific a degree you choose the more focused on a particular career it will be, especially if it is aimed towards a particular country’s education system.

Some institutions specialize in teaching and training qualifications, and may be referred to as teaching colleges, however many universities have teaching programs alongside their other academic courses.

Education program structure

The program curriculum of an education qualification will depend on exactly the type of degree a university offers. Many qualifications that would allow you to become a qualified teacher are country and even state specific, so you need to know exactly what the content of the program is before applying.

If you are studying teaching from a purely academic angle then you will focus on research into pedagogy. However, most education focused degrees will require a large amount of practical learning and research, including placements for real teaching experience. These can include specialist areas of teaching for specific groups such as:

  • Elementary education
  • Early years education
  • Adult education
  • Teaching English as a foreign language
  • Special education
  • Coaching

Types of education degrees

Education focused degrees are available at all levels of study. As part of a liberal arts bachelor’s you would have the opportunity to major or minor in a particular area of education for example elementary education. This is the same for any university that follows the liberal arts model of tertiary education.

In the UK you can study education as a bachelor’s degree by itself, and be prescribed and choose a mixture of modules in the different fields of education.

Postgraduate levels of education study can fall into either an MSc or MA master’s qualification. PhDs in education are often for those teaching who want to further research in the subject of pedagogy, and complete a large thesis. This is different to an EdD which is a more practical qualification for those who want to further their professional teaching careers.

Why study education abroad

If you have career aspirations to be a teacher of any kind, then a degree in education could be a good starting point to gain the skills and knowledge you need. You’ll learn techniques and methods of teaching, as well as how to teach specific groups of people.

However, the benefits of studying for an education degree go beyond simply wanting to be a teacher. It may simply be that pedagogy is an area that you are interested in, and want to research. In this case a degree in education could give you many transferable skills for other careers.

Where to study education abroad

Where you decide to study abroad will be determined by the country, a university’s program, and your personal goals. As every country's teaching requirements vary, if you study for an education degree it doesn’t necessarily mean that upon graduation you are a qualified teacher in that country.

Best countries to study education

Some countries are renowned for their education systems, and as such will be able to provide high quality teaching for education qualifications. Some of these countries include:

  • Finland
  • UK
  • Japan
  • Norway
  • Denmark

Best universities to study education

Specialist education and teaching colleges exist, and may be able to offer you the exact program you are looking for.

It’s worth considering if there are any notable academics or theories of study you are interested in researching further. Some universities won’t offer specific modules in what you may want to study or may be specialists in that particular area.

If you are looking for practical experience as part of your program, this is another thing to check if a university offers. The city you are studying in could be where any placements are located, so the local school system may play a part in your decision making.
