MEd Summer And Online And PGDE Programmes (SVUS – Mixed Modality)

General Details of Programme

The Masters in Education Summer and Online Programmes are self-financing programmes offered on a part-time basis.  This means that these programme do not benefit from the University Grants Committee (UGC) funding. Though the programmes are self-financing, Jamaican students are able to benefit from a partial remuneration from the Ministry of Education, as the programme’s online delivery does not necessitate leave from work. 

The MEd online programmes are offered using both online (synchronous and asynchronous delivery), as well as face-to-face or blended sessions in the summer.  

As the programmes are delivered primarily online, students are not constrained by class times or class sizes. There are six (6) specializations currently offered in the M.Ed. online programme.

M.Ed. Programme Offerings

The current specialized areas are as follows:

  • M.Ed. Educational Leadership and Management

  • M.Ed. Educational Measurement 

  • M.Ed. Teacher Education 

  • M.Ed. Leadership in Early Childhood Development

  • MEd Early Childhood Education  (Pedagogy)

  • MEd Curriculum and Instruction 

  • M. Ed. Inclusive and Special Education

The Postgraduate Diploma in Education Online Programme or MAT Part 1 Programme comprises year one (1) of the Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) Programme. Upon completion of the programme, students are awarded a Postgraduate Diploma in Education.  A special feature of the Programme is delivery through the Single Virtual University Space (SVUS), which combines face-to-face, blended and online (OurVLE) delivery, otherwise referred to as multi-modal delivery. 

The programme has been offered to students residing across the Caribbean, specifically in these territories: St. Lucia, Cayman, Bermuda, Jamaica, Montserrat, Dominica, Anguilla, and Belize.
