BEDS Curriculum

In each semester the student will be exposed to a variety of topics and learning activities. The activities are organised as a set of semi-continuous thematic tracks, that indicate a topical commonality and learning progression across the six semesters.

Each topic consists of a various number of courses. All courses in a semester address key questions connected to the over-arching topic for that specific semester.

Technology components are integrated with learning activities and assessments in all thematic tracks throughout the semesters.
