Bern University of Teacher Education trains teachers for the entire school system: from pre-primary to lower secondary school and for middle school (upper secondary schools, vocational secondary schools), as well as special needs teachers.
Every year, 700 qualified teachers graduate from Bern University of Teacher Education with a degree in teaching. Training at this university is characterised by a large amount of practical work, which is facilitated by the university’s cooperation with more than 70 schools offering internships.
This ensures that students are well prepared for their future professional life. Training takes place in the modern vonRoll university centre, which was completed in 2013. Bern University of Teacher Education shares these attractive premises with the University of Bern.
The largest library in the city of Bern, the vonRoll library, can be found here. The core tasks of Bern University of Teacher Education also include research, development and evaluation. The aim is to link research, teaching and school practice.
The findings of the research, development and evaluation projects enhance practical application at schools and in teaching, and help to facilitate optimum training and advanced training of teaching staff.
