There are a number of different routes to choose from, in order to become a preschool, primary or upper secondary school teacher. Teaching education at the University of Iceland is now at the master‘s level and there are more options for specialisation than before. These changes promote increased professionalism and job satisfaction, as well as more career opportunities.

Teachers play an important role in society, and therefore teacher education has been popular. The majority of those that complete teaching studies work as teachers, but the course is also useful for various other positions, both within the educational system and in the general labour market.
