School of Education and Social Sciences

The School of Education and Social Sciences is one of the most attractive schools of the Polytechnic of Leiria, offering a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and attracting more than 2000 students every academic year. Internationally, the school actively cooperates with our European Higher Education partners, but also further away with institutions from Portuguese Speaking African countries, Brazil and China.

When ESECS was founded, in 1979, it was only focused on delivering teacher training courses for those who wished to teach pre-school, primary education and middle school education children. Today, the school is a reference in teacher training, communication and human and social sciences teaching in Portugal.
