University of Pretoria - Faculty of Education

Our Faculty accommodates more than 3 500 Bachelor of Education students and approximately 900 of our graduates annually enter the teaching profession. We also offer a one-year Higher Certificate in Sports Sciences. Our programmes are strengthened by our partnerships with other departments and faculties within the University of Pretoria.

The Faculty produces quality teachers who are technologically literate and are able to respond to the rapidly changing teaching environment. We run the FLY@UP campaign that aims to ensure that students take responsibility for completing their degrees in the minimum period indicated for each programme. FLY stands for ‘the Finish Line is Yours’. Students who have completed their undergraduate studies are strongly encouraged to pursue honours, masters and doctoral studies.

In the pursuit of teaching excellence, the Faculty supports the University’s hybrid teaching and learning model, which offers students an optimal blend of learning opportunities in a physical and virtual learning environment, and drawing on a broad range of virtual teaching strategies, learning tools, and media such as YouTube videos, mobile apps and narrated PowerPoint presentations that equip our teachers with the skills and attributes to respond to the demands of tomorrow.
