Education

The HCT’s Teacher Education programmes are developed specifically for the UAE’s teaching
needs. The HCT B.Ed has been developed in collaboration with one of the world’s leading
universities - the Melbourne Graduate School of Education at the University of Melbourne,
Australia. The Melbourne Graduate School of Education continues to benchmark the HCT B.Ed.
to international standards, certifying that the HCT programme is equivalent to an Australian
undergraduate bachelor of education degree. Prepared with up-to-date knowledge of educational
theory, HCT education students practice the skills they learn at their college in actual classroom
situations with intensive practicum placements each semester. 
The B.Ed. programme features up to 155 days of practicum, culminating in a 10-week internship
in the final semester. This hands-on approach to learning gives students the teaching skills they
need to excel in their future careers as educators, and ensures they are “ready to teach” upon
graduation. HCT teacher education graduates are working in a wide range of educational settings
across the UAE. With a willingness to embrace change, HCT education graduates are making
strong contributions to continuous quality improvement in education, and are helping lead in
the development of the nation.
