Guiding tomorrow

School for Education Research & Engagement

The exciting and challenging context of South African education demands educators, managers and planners that are highly skilled, knowledgeable and effective leaders in their respective spheres of influence. Our programmes provide opportunities for such change agents to make a difference by engaging in communities of scholarship, participating in cutting-edge research and contributing to innovative and visionary solutions to the present challenges in the Southern African educational arena.

The School for Education Research and Engagement (SERE) offers exciting possibilities for students to progress meaningfully in their academic and professional careers.

The School offers a Master’s programme (M Ed) through full research and a Ph D in Education through full research, both in various fields of specialisation (e.g. Educational Management and Leadership, Special Needs Education, Curriculum Studies, HIV and Aids, Intercultural Studies, Mathematics Education, Science Education and Information and Communication Technology - ICT/Computers), applying appropriate research methodologies, such as visual research methodologies, action research, mixed methods research and quantitative research methodologies.
