What are the career prospects?

This programme has been designed to facilitate teachers to upskill in a new cognate area in parallel with their teaching workload. The individual modules have been designed specifically with the teacher and their students in mind to ensure that the content, learning outcomes and assessment are appropriate and relevant to the educational context. The concept of the teacher as a researcher underpins every aspect of the programme, as teachers will be required to engage with emerging trends and best practice, from a subject content perspective as well as the incorporation of that content in the classroom.

What Our Students Have to Say

TUS Flexible Learning offers access to a network of the greatest bunch of students ever, along with alumni, faculty, and business leaders both local and international. Working in a virtual world has not limited the access to any of these support networks and likely the main reason I have been able to get through the course while balancing work and family commitments. If you are considering taking that next step forward in your career, I would highly recommend the Master of Science program in TUS Flexible Online
