Postgraduate Studies

The Faculty of Education offers a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) delivered during the evening hours from 4.00 pm and during weekend and public holidays. The PGDE Evening programme is aimed at individuals intending to work or are already working within the education sector, and who wish to gain a teaching profession.

The programme leads to certification in the teaching profession equivalent to B. Sc. Ed, B. A. Ed. or B.Ed. degrees. The PGDE (Evening) programme in particular is offered flexibly to individuals who wish to develop a career in teaching but are unable to attend a regular similar fulltime programme due to time constraint or work demands. This programme is, therefore, unique in that it makes it possible to combine work and studies.

In line with the TCU and UDSM guidelines for admission into postgraduate diploma programmes, the entry qualifications for the PGDE is Advanced Diploma and Bachelor’s Degree Qualifications in subjects other than education.
