The Faculty of Education aims, through its research, teaching and community services, to produce teachers and trainers who can meet the differentiated educational needs of the wider community. In this way, we make a crucial contribution towards developing the human potential in the Southern African community.
When we plan our programmes of study, South African educational priorities are our main concern. By designing our teacher training curricula to face up to the educational needs of our time, we make sure that teachers who qualify at our Faculty can start out on their teaching careers with confidence.
Our Faculty runs two undergraduate programmes:
Please find the selection policies for BEd Foundation Phase and BEd Intermediate Phase.
If you hold a recognised three-year education qualification, but do not meet the admission requirements for university programmes, or want to acquire further knowledge and skills in your subject field, you may still be able to register for an Advanced Diploma in Education (ADE). The programmes that are offered will provide you the opportunity to focus on Physical Sciences, Life Sciences, Natural Sciences, Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy in the Intermediary, Senior or Further Education and Training (FET) Phases.
Any of the two undergraduate programmes gives you access to the postgraduate BEd Honours Programmes. Here, you then have a choice of fields of study in Education.
