IMEC - International Master in Early Childhood Education and Care

The objective of International Master in Early Childhood Education and Care (“IMEC”) is to establish a competitive European Master Programme to be able to attract students from Third Countries who are now taking this kind of specialisation elsewhere. Its forerunner, EMEC - European Master Programme in Early Childhood Education and Care (developed 2005-2008), is one of the few existing Master programmes in this field in Europe.

This study programme is a two-year full-time Master programme (120 ECTS credits) in early childhood education and care, “IMEC”, offered by a consortium of 3 partner universities in Norway, Ireland and Malta. Co-ordinating institution is Høgskolen i Oslo / Oslo University College (HiO). From 2011 the consortium will be expanded to 4 partners, with University of Gothenburg (Sweden) as the fourth parter.

IMEC is delivered on campus. The 3 first semesters will have an introductory week at the new university. Online learning materials and videoconference seminars will support traditional teaching methods such as lectures and supervision. An LMS (Learning Management System) will support oncampus learning.

On successful completion, students will be awarded a joint Master degree (120 ECTS credits) recognised by all 3 partners: HiO, Universitá ta’Malta and Dublin Institute of Technology. Teaching language is mainly English. Norwegian, Maltese and Irish language courses will be offered. IMEC will receive 17 students, where of 10 from third countries and 7 from EU/EEA countries.
