The BEd Honours degree is a first postgraduate degree in education and is intended to prepare students for research- based postgraduate study. It serves to consolidate and deepen expertise in a specific area in education, and to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of the area.

The purpose of the qualification is then firstly to consolidate and deepen students’ knowledge of their selected specialisation and secondly to develop research capacity in the methodology and techniques of that specialisation in order to prepare students for advanced post-graduate studies in the selected field of specialisation. Being the first post-graduate degree in education, the qualification aims to equip students with a high level of theoretical engagement and intellectual independence relevant to their chosen specialisation, as well as to understand the important role of research and specialised skills related to exploring key issues within their chosen specialisation. Students will plan, conduct and report on a research project under supervision which will address contemporary and critical issues in the selected specialisation.Syllabus
