Bachelor of  Education Honours Degree in Inclusive Education

There are two types of programmes:

  • 2 Year programme
  • 4 Year programme

2 YEAR PROGRAMME

The programme is designed for teachers who desire to engage in further education or training to upgrade their professional knowledge, skills and practices. This work-based programme aims to narrow the gap between theory, policy and practice in the field of education for all. The educational future of all children requires a broad vision of education: a vision that embraces all children in line with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goal No 4 and the Incheon Declaration for 2030.

The programme has a strong ethos of supporting the right of every child to quality education and learning. Pursuant to this ethos, the programme is designed to expose students to an inclusive education system whose main goal is to provide all children with the most appropriate learning environment for them to best achieve their potential. Specifically, the programme seeks to promote success for all children with many different attributes such as disability; ethnicity; language; gender; or socio- economic status.

Exclusion of some children from meaningful participation in the schooling life is one of the greatest problems facing some children in our society today. For instance, disability is the single most serious barrier to education across the globe. For instance, nearly 50 per cent of children with disabilities are not in school, compared to only 13 per cent of their peers without disabilities. Robbed of their right to learn, children with disabilities are often denied the chance to take part in their communities, the workforce and the decisions that most affect them.

Through this programme, Arrupe Jesuit University (AJU) believes that inclusive education is the most effective way to give all children a fair chance to go to school, learn and develop the skills they need in order to thrive in the 21st century. Translate Education Vision 2030 into practice by becoming an inclusive teacher; the teacher of the future. We believe that an inclusive teacher is the teacher of the future. Be ahead of time.

  • Work-based learning: no need to leave your current work
  • Career progression: MEd in Inclusive Education, PhD in Inclusive Education
