English abstract
This study sets out to research the effects of perceptions regarding teacher education as well as the teacher profession in general amongst college students studying to become teachers. The aim of the study is to get a better understanding in what perceptions that constitutes the foundation of the aspects that may affect the students of education by interviewing students about how they perceive their education. The study relies on a sociocultural perspective to analyze the data as well as justify the relevance of the study. The method for researching this will consist mainly of interviews and literature studies. Four students of education, where two are Swedish and two are Finnish, will act as the main source of empiric information. The study will also perform two interviews with college teachers, which will help in the analysis of the data. The result of this study show a significant difference in how the Swedish and the Finnish students perceive their profession and their education, where the biggest distinction is in the field of work markets and status. A possible explanation for this difference could be found in the requirements for becoming a teacher in each country. The interviews also show areas where the students have great similarities in perceptions, for example in questions regarding the quality of the education they have received.
