Western Norway Graduate School of Educational Research II (WNGER II) was established 23. August 2018 to strengthen the PhD-education across 6 universities and university colleges in Western Norway. WNGER II is a research school in Western Norway where the aim is to create the best possible research education for our PhD candidates at both the host- and partner institutions. WNGER II shall be a good supplement to the existing PhD programs in Vestlandet and therefore it aims that candidates take the doctorate courses that match their progression and desires.

The target groups for the research school are PhD candidates in pedagogy, teacher education, university and college pedagogy, educational science, health and sports science, special education and professional practice.

The host institution is the University of Bergen and partner institutions are the University of Stavanger , the Western Norway University of Applies Sciences,the NLA University College, the VID Specialized College and the Volda University College. The University of Agder has become our new associate member from 1.5.2020.
