The teacher education department of UC Leuven-Limburg is the largest teacher education department in Flanders. It provides professional bachelors for preschool, primary and secondary teachers and specialized bachelor programs for special education and care teachers and for school leaders.

UC Leuven-Limburg is a member of educational networks across the globe and strongly collaborates with local, regional and national policy-making bodies, resulting in a broad network of stakeholders. UC Leuven-Limburg is and has been involved in a variety of European projects: under H2020, under Erasmus+ and other EC programmes. These projects provide answers to present or foreseen problems in the professional field. Therefore, a close link with the professional field is essential. The link is established through education and research.

Our relevance for the region is a strong starting point to put our international projects. Framing contextual professional needs in a more global framework, where good practices can be shared and one can learn from each other’s experiences, leads to more sustainable solutions. Therefore, we consider a strong international network as important as our regional one.

The projects are closely related to our study programmes. UC Leuven-Limburg’s policy aims to maximize the interaction between research projects and education. This means that both students and teaching staff are involved in research practice. We also introduce research output in any study program wherever possible. A quarter of our staff is involved in research projects, and 80% of the researchers has teaching assignments. Information and research competences are gradually developed in every study program.
