York Münster Pedagogical Student Exchange (YMPSE)

Posted on 30 March 2023

The first part of our newly established YMPSE came to a successful conclusion on 24 February.

This bilateral exchange between the University of York and Westfälische Wilhelms University Münster was set up by Dr Ursula Lanvers, and Mirjam Buehler- Willey (Department of Education, York) and Professor Jungwirth from the Department for professional teacher training, Münster.

The programme contributes to the Department’s strategic goals of diversification,
developing our international perspective, and strengthening collaboration with
international HEI partners.

On 13 February, York welcomed 10 teacher trainee students of English from the University of Münster. In their first week, students attended tailor-made workshops organised by Dr Ursula Lanvers, and visited a range of modules at the Department of Education. In the second week, students visited a range of secondary schools.

On 30 October the Department of Education will send York PGCE students to Münster. They will equally experience one week of University teaching and one week of school placement.

Prospective PGCE students of any subject can opt for this exchange upon registration with us. A full report from all participating students will also be shared with us soon.
