We are currently partnered with early childhood colleagues in Dublin, Ireland. This partnership was brought about through sharing experiences of remote and virtual placement for early childhood pre-service teachers in the time of COVID-19.

Academics and students at Karlstad are partnering with Victoria University to share ideas and experiences. We are planning for exchanges in the future.
Courses we offer
If you already hold a Diploma of Children’s Services, you enter straight into the second year of our 3- and 4-year degrees, and graduate in just two years.
For three-year trained early childhood teachers, we offer a direct entry into the fourth year of our Bachelor of Early Childhood and Leadership, meaning you can study with us for one year to graduate with that 4-year degree.
3-year & 4-year programs
The following three courses are good if you:
- have just finished secondary school
- hold a Diploma of Children’s Services and want to upskill to a bachelor
- are a qualified early childhood teacher with a 3-year degree looking to qualify as a 4-year trained teacher.
