About

Faculty Of Education

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Faculty of Education at the University of Benin through which you can read about our outstanding undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that maintain rigorous, enriched, rewarding, world-leading research and innovative taught courses.

The Faculty has pioneered teacher education that stretches back over forty years impacting on both national and international professional learning. This has attracted many students from around the world. Our programmes have changed in response to the rapidly changing demography of the current and future student body.

The Faculty researches are aimed at improving the learning environment and the educational system. Our training recognizes that students’ performance not only rests on their class experiences but those beyond the classrooms. We encourage students to actively participate in extracurricular activities to keep abreast with their level of awareness in the areas of technology, global, cultural/ethnic issues, politics and professional development.

Beyond the regular class contacts the Faculty partners with industries to synergize classroom experiences with those of the industries. In addition we offer training for practitioners as refresher teaching and leadership programmes.

Once more, I welcome you and hope that your visit to this site will have given you answers to your probing questions. You may reach us for more interaction.
