Welcome Message from the Dean

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I warmly welcome you to the website of the School of Education. Ours is the largest School in the College of Humanities at the University of KwaZulu-Natal and we are proud of our excellence in the academic trinity.

In line with the academic structure which the University of KwaZulu-Natal adopted in 2012, the School of Education is made up of the following six clusters:

We offer the following academic programmes: Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Education Honours, Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE), M. Ed and PhD.  We are proud of our cohort model of PhD supervision which is well appreciated in many quarters both within and outside the University.

The cohort model of supervision is one of the factors behind our increasing postgraduate throughput rate. We have taken our cohort model of supervision to contexts beyond the borders of South Africa. For example, we are currently running M.Ed/PhD cohorts in Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Mauritius and intend to extend this facility to other countries. We also offer postdoctoral fellowships.

For a student who seeks quality academic programmes, the School of Education is the name to keep in mind. For a researcher who wants to go on a sabbatical or research leave, the School of Education is a fruitful destination. We also work in partnership and collaboration with other institutions of higher education through Memorandums of Understanding. New partners are most welcome. We invite you all to read more on our website, and please do not hesitate to link up with us on any matter of interest.

Enjoy your visit to our website. Feel at home!
