Master of Education in Educational Management

General

Program Description

Overview

The online MEd in Educational Management is relevant to anyone involved in the formal or informal education sector.

The range of modules will add value to previous learning and provide conceptual and theoretical frameworks to make sense of and review practices. While the programme is globally informed, participants will be expected to interrogate imported knowledge in the light of their local contextual knowledge and practice and to find their own educational management voice. In short, the programme is designed to raise questions, stimulate critical thought and support the reflective professional practice.

Admission requirements

Qualified teachers and education managers holding a BEd Honours degree or a Postgraduate Diploma in Education either in Leadership and Management or its equivalent will be considered for the programme.

Other Honours degrees, as well as Bachelor’s degrees, will also be considered. International qualifications will be verified by SAQA and considered
