Gaining teaching experience in a local school, or school and community-based experiences for non-education students, is a key element of the programme. Our International Team are keen to hear from US colleges and universities interested in developing tailored programmes for their students in Belfast.
Semester students typically take 60 CATS or 15 US Credits and can choose from a wide range of classes, including liberal arts, education, childhood studies, health and exercise science, theology and biblical studies.
