Admission requirements:
A Bachelor of Education (Hons) or an equivalent qualification, which should have been passed with an average of 60% to be considered for selection. Each Candidate have to submit the following to the School of Education before 30 October of the year preceding their studies:

  • an updated curriculum vitae, including all contact details;
  • a typed motivation for wishing to study for the Masters in Education;
  • a short description of the research topic; and
  • an academic record that includes the marks obtained in the Bachelor of Education (Hons).

In addition, candidates should successfully complete Research Methodology in the first year of study if it was not included in a previous qualification. Postgraduate workshops will be held and students have to attend them.

  • Candidates should understand that neither an average of 60% nor the submission of the portfolio automatically gives them admission to the Masters in Education. If a candidate’s portfolio is accepted, he or she will be invited to an interview. During this interview, a final decision will be taken about his or her admission.
  • Candidates, who did not obtain their previous qualification at TUT should submit an application form to Student Administration in order to obtain a student number.

Selection criteria

Candidates who are selected on the strength of their written motivations will be invited for interviews. Candidates who succeed in their interviews will be informed during November to register.
