Master in Education (full-time) - Máster en Educación
1. A completed Bachelor´s degree in Pedagogical Sciences or related area
International students´ prior education must meet certain requirements. The entry level for Master´s programmes at Western European universities is relatively high. First and foremost, the foreign certificate on the basis of which you seek admission must be at least equivalent to a Dutch Bachelor´s degree in Pedagogical Sciences obtained at an accredited university (BA or BSc), with sufficient coverage or research methods.
2. A proficiency in English
•A TOEFL score of ≥550 (paper based) or ≥213 (computer based) or ≥80 (internet based)
•A IELTS score of ≥6.0
•Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English (CAE) or Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) with a mark of C or higher
The Master’s programme in Pedagogical Sciences has two English and five Dutch specialisations, each aimed at a certain development domain. Your programme will consist of a few general subjects and two courses that are specifically geared to your specialisation of choice. Coaching is an important part of the programme. The coaching skills you learn can be used in a profession where the role of remedial educationalists is becoming more and more important.
The master´s programme in Pedagogical Sciences has two specialisations:
•Diversities in Youth Care: The specialisation Diversities in Youth Care challenges you to look at care giving and welfare policies differently. You will gain specific knowledge and develop a sixth sense on the health care needs of young people.
•Gifted Education: You will learn how to identify the needs of a gifted pupil. Giftedness is more than IQ. You will study how personal characteristic abilities, and surroundings influence each other. You will investigate the conflict between stimulating talent and being fearful of doing so.
