Peduca In English

What is Peduca?

Peduca is a student organisation of the students of general and adult education and teacher’s education. Peduca brings together the students of two different departments, but all of our members have at least one thing in common: we study educational sciences.

Peduca was formed in 1974 and it has approximately 700 members.

What does Peduca do?

Peduca takes care of it’s members’ equality and rights when it comes to their studies and student life at the University. Peduca is a non-profit organisation and it’s guided by a board. Each board member has a responsibility area, for example equality, tutoring or international matters. Meetings of the board are open to everybody. Peduca cooperates with other student organisations, cooperation organisation of the Faculty of Behavioral Sciences Condus and trade unions.
