The Faculty of Education provides modern and innovative programmes to support the development needs of the education system in the UAE, the Gulf and the wider Middle/Far Eastern context. It brings together experienced teachers from wide ethnic, cultural and educational backgrounds to allow them to examine modern educational theories and approaches under the guidance of expert staff. This allows the participants to reflect on their own educational contexts, to examine the latest international research findings, and to use this process to develop as individual teachers and as future managers of education.
The Faculty offers full-time and part-time research-based Masters, and Diploma degree programmes and the region's first accredited Doctorate in Education. Students can specialise in any one of the four areas for their Masters programmes: International Management, Special and Inclusive Education, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Information Communication & Technology. For the Doctorate in Education BUiD's Faculty of Education welcomes applications from those who are interested in pursuing a Professional Doctorate through research in TESOL, Special and Inclusive Education or International Management & Policy. Both the Masters and the Doctorate Degrees are awarded by The British University in Dubai according to standards set.
The Faculty of Education offers postgraduate degree in Education. A Masters degree is fast becoming an essential qualification for those wishing to progress their careers. For example, within TEFL/TESOL a Masters degree is needed for teaching at the tertiary level in most countries in the world. A Masters qualification also allows teachers to become subject specialists either as heads of departments or inspectors.
