Education

Message from the Dean

In a modern world and modern times we have to adapt our way of teaching. Across the world students are now more tuned up with the newest technology and easily distracted by alternative methods. It is when faced with this problem that we decided to take the bull by the horns and create an education degree that will not just challenge the learners but that will also end with a higher level of education in the classroom. An educational method that will inspire creativity, break the normal cycle and create learners with a passion in life.

Students in the Education department are motivated to do part time teaching as a teaching assistant from day one and apply the knowledge gained from their studies to their surrounding activities. From using face-to-face methods to implementing digital media, students will be able to create a learner atmosphere that is imperative for survival; not only for them, but for their learners too.

Our Psychology with Education degree offers the same subjects for all majors in the first 2 years. Only in the 3rd year do we split pre-primary, primary, secondary and higher education. This is due to our main vision being the same for all departments: We would like to create creativity. Out the window are the basic teaching methods and in we come with developmental techniques that will help students not only adjust, but also thrive in the cut-throat environment we send them into when they are done.

At Imperium University we create the most wanted teachers in the world. Teachers that are not just well prepared professionally or with the most knowledge in their subject area, but teachers that will be able to recognise and develop inspired students. Teachers that will form a vision in their students that will aid them in taking on the world. Teachers that form the most important part of their learner’s base.

For those that would like to enter into a more formal educational environment we offer Educational Studies. This degree is more focused on business training and the creation of teaching methodologies. The challenge teachers will face here is that most of their learners’ base of education is already formed at this stage and it will be up to them to inspire creativity here.
