UOWD launches 2 new postgraduate programs in education studies targeted at school teachers
 

The ‘Master of Educational Studies’ and the ‘Graduate Diploma in Educational Studies’ tailored to upgrade UAE school education in run-up to Expo 2020

Dubai, March 20, 2018:  The University of Wollongong in Dubai (UOWD) is launching of two new postgraduate programs in the field of education this summer, against the backdrop of growing demand for private sector schooling in the UAE.

The Master of Educational Studies and the Graduate Diploma in Educational Studies have been developed by UOWD to help build capacity in the UAE schools sector, which is expected to see a demand for 175,000 new places, according to an independent report produced earlier this year. 

To be launched in the Summer 2018 semester, the new programs aim to upgrade the skills of teachers currently employed in UAE schools.

To meet the need for ongoing innovation, the programs will provide the necessary pedagogical skills and educational knowledge to transform the practice of teaching in the UAE, at the classroom and school levels.

The announcement comes on the back of the recent World Education Summit in Dubai, which heard from leading officials about the need to ‘future-proof’ teaching and learning practices through more flexible curricula, focusing on students’ qualities and creativity.

Speaking about the new programs, UOWD’s President, Professor Mohamed-Vall M. Salem Zein, said, “We know that the advancement of schooling in the UAE is a major priority in achieving the national vision for a first-rate education system, and this starts with the development of exceptional teachers and outstanding leaders.

“Our aim in introducing these new postgraduate qualifications is to develop teachers’ specialised knowledge in education practice, curriculum development and learning strategy, to position the UAE at the forefront of innovation and best practice in the sector.”  

Accredited by the UAE Ministry of Education – Higher Education Affairs, the new programs draw upon the Australian learning and teaching principles of the high-ranking University of Wollongong, with a curriculum that is locally relevant to the UAE environment. Both qualifications can be exchanged for the equivalent Australian certificate upon graduation.

The structure of the programs allows students to continue with their professional teaching alongside their studies. Candidates can achieve a Graduate Diploma level qualification in 12 months and a master’s level degree in 18 months. Applications to both programs are now open.
