Queen’s University offers two different ways to enter into its Teacher Education program:
The CONCURRENT Education program, where students work towards completing two degrees at the same time. Both degrees can normally be completed in five years. There are 3 Concurrent Education Programs offered:
• Queen’s (enter directly from secondary school)
• Queen’s-Trent (enter directly from secondary school)
• Queen’s-Waterloo Joint Program (enter from the BMath or BCS Honours Co-op programs at the University of Waterloo)
The CONSECUTIVE Education Program, where students enter after having already completed a university undergraduate degree (BEd) or secondary school diploma (or equivalent) (DipEd). The program is completed in one year and leads to a Bachelor of Education degree or the Diploma in Education.
Upon successful completion, all programs lead to recommendation to the Ontario College of Teachers for the awarding of the Certificate of Qualification as a teacher, which qualifies the holder to teach in the publicly supported schools of Ontario.
