Starting in 2015, our Concurrent and Consecutive programs will be longer and therefore more expensive. This bursary will enable us to support students, on the basis financial need, who otherwise might not be able to afford the opportunity to study at our Faculty.
Our new program for 2015 is unique because it will take place over four consecutive semesters, starting in May and ending in August of the following year, while most other faculties of education will offer the typical fall and winter semesters and the summer off in between.
The advantage of our program is that graduates are out into the job market one year early. The second factor that will make Queen’s grads more marketable is that they will all graduate with a specialization.
Your donation means that we will continue to graduate excellent teachers, regardless of their financial situation.
