University Of Stellenbosch Education Courses
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 programmes of study offer resource-based learning. They offer varied modes of presentation (residential; Internet-based; interactive telematic broadcastings and phone-in sessions). And, spread as they are over the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, they offer lifelong learning opportunities.
Our Faculty, it is true, runs only one undergraduate programme – that for the BEd (General Education and Training). Your undergraduate studies at other faculties could, however, be a basis for postgraduate studies in Education. See Postgraduate Certificate of Education.
Let us look now at your situation if you hold a recognised three-year education qualification, but do not meet the admission requirements for university programmes. This leaves one excluded from study at a university in the ordinary run of things. In fact, however, you may still be able to register for an Advanced Certificate in Education (ACE). And here you would even have an option. You could take a programme that improves your leadership skills as a principal. Or you could take a programme that improves your skills in your particular subject with a view to teaching in the Senior and/or Further Education and Training Phase (FET Phase).
A four-year education qualification gives you access to the postgraduate BEdHons programme up to 2014. Here, you then have a choice of fields of study in Education.
