School of Education

Welcome message from the Dean

Welcome you all to the School of Education which is one of the three Schools of the College of Education at the University of Rwanda. This School offers the ultimate opportunity to aspiring teachers and educational professionals in Rwanda, the region and beyond. It distinguishes itself through cutting edge innovative research, teaching and learning, and community service. The primary authority and responsibility of the School is to prepare high quality teachers, school administrators and counsellors ranging from undergraduate to the graduate levels.

On top of our commitment to prepare teacher candidates and other school professionals who are reflective and capable of evaluating their choices, actions and decisions in the learning process, the School also triggers active learning that leads to critical thinking. Besides, we engage professional trainers who use their understanding of content and pedagogical knowledge to enable student learning. Our academic environment alleviates relationships with school colleagues, parents and the community and therefore, stimulates student growth and development. 

I encourage you to explore our webpage to learn more about the population, the programs, the activities and services that make up our academic community and make us an excellent School of Education. Working with us will make you realize that the School of Education is worthy of the name.

 I welcome everyone who wants to make a difference in education in East Africa, Africa and in the world.
