Master of Education

The Master of Education (MEd) programme is a one-year, full-time programme, open to outstanding teachers and educational leaders at all levels of the education system.  The programme provides clear theoretical frameworks and principles that support quality professional practice, equipping graduates to be exemplary teachers and educational leaders in a variety of contexts.

Students specialize in one of educational leadership and management; early childhood care and education; language and literacy in education; science in education; and mathematics in education.  Core courses include research methods; ICT in education; and curriculum, learning and assessment.  Students choose one elective out of gender in education; fundamentals of classical logic; teaching sensitive issues; and early childhood literacies.  A four week practicum period in a school or other educational setting enables links between theory and practice to be made.  A sustained research project gives the opportunity to examine one particular area in depth and use research skills developed through this programme.

Admissions to the MEd programme commencing in January 2015 are open. Applications are welcomed from candidates across East Africa. 

The deadline for submission of the Application Form is Monday, June 16, 2014
