An applicant may be eligible for entry into the Master of Education, Stream 100 if the applicant has:
- an appropriate honours degree in Education with a minimum honours result of 75%, or equivalent; or
- a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma in the field of Education , with an average result of at least 75%, or equivalent; or
- an appropriate four-year degree, or equivalent, and at least two years of documented relevant professional experience and a record of research activity and/or publications equivalent to 50 points of year five study
The documented record of activity and/or publications referred to must entail clearly research-driven initiative(s) that generated a written product for which the author was sole or significant contributor or author. This initiative may be centred on workplace-related issues, but it must extend further than routine endeavours that would be considered part of normal practices within the educational workplace (for example, normal subject or course evaluation or policy formulation). The design of the research should reflect sound, explicit conceptual and methodological bases and it should include either empirical or document-based data collection and analysis. The report should constitute an advance in current knowledge in the field. Overall, the information supplied must convince the selection committee that the applicant has sufficient educational research expertise or experience to enable successful completion of the degree within the time allowed. For entry into Stream 100, the evidence needs to be particularly persuasive. Applicants for Streams 100 are required to submit a thesis proposal signed by their proposed supervisor and the Head of Department with their applications.
