Faculty of Education

The faculty was established in 1990 the Faculty of Education and Psychology. As the university developed its vision to become Lithuanian University of Educational Sciences, the academic staff had to overcome a challenge of establishing a faculty that would match the specialisation of the university. Thus in 2010 it was decided to strengthen the training of educational scientists (teachers, education managers, leaders, psychologists, social pedagogues and others) and to unite the divisions training these specialists under a single Faculty of Education.
In 2011 the senate and Rector approved the new faculty and its structure as well as the model of management. The faculty cooperates with a very wide variety of foreign institutions, such as Konservatorium Wien University (Austria), University of Coimbra (Portugal), University of Franche-Comté (France), Aalto University School of Art and Design (Finland), University College Lillebaelt (Denmark), University of Iceland (Iceland) to name but a few.
There are currently 13 professors, 65 associate professors, 15 lecturers and 33 assistant lecturers working and 1574 undergraduate and 240 master students studying in the faculty.
