Welcome to the Faculty of Education

Message from the Dean

Welcome to the Faculty of Education. Whether you are registered for an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification, I hope you will enjoy your academic journey with us.  To first-year students, this is where your professional journey begins. We are very excited that you regard teaching as your calling and that you have chosen the University of Zululand as your base where you will learn all the ins and outs of education in your preferred specialization. To postgraduate students, it is exactly as Dr Nelson Mandela said, that “After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb”.

The faculty has seven academic departments (Arts & Languages, Curriculum & Instructional Studies, Early Childhood Education, Educational Foundations & Management, Educational Psychology & Special Education, Mathematics, Science & Technology Education, and, Social Sciences Education) which offer five qualifications, from the Bachelor of Education right up to Doctor of Philosophy/Doctor of Education. Supporting these departments is the Educational Professional Practice Unit which facilitates and coordinates the school experience (teaching practice) component for the Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) and the Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
