Course offerings and areas of expertise

The Department of Education Leadership and Management, DELM, is one of the few remaining education leadership and management departments to be found at a South African university. DELM offers courses at both undergraduate and post graduate levels. The strength of the Department lies at the honours and master’s levels.

DELM also offers a Postgraduate Diploma in Education Leadership and Management and PhD supervision.

We currently have about 150 honours, 40 master’s and 30 PhD students. Master’s applicants can apply for the degree either by coursework and mini-dissertation or by full-dissertation. The honours and master’s courses will be offered on-line shortly.
