Faculty of Education

​The purpose of the CIU’s Faculty of Education is to educate students to become teachers equipped with contemporary knowledge, knowing how to obtain and share information with the community. The management and instructors in the Faculty are aware that traditional teaching approaches that aim to transfer information to students are no longer viable. Contemporary education endeavors to enable students to learn how to learn and gain specific skills, attitudes and values. The courses are approved by both the Turkish Board of Higher Education (YÖK) and the accreditation Board of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (YÖDAK). Courses include voluntary modules and seminars and conferences organised in order to make our students equipped with modern information. All Faculty courses are both theoretical and practical with the former taking place in technology supported environments. Teaching practice sessions, under the supervision of a practical instructor and a demonstrator, take place in TRNC Ministry of Education run schools.

Moreover, the Faculty of Education is involved in various research activities related to recent topics in education supported by the Ministry of Education and other state and private educational institutions.
