The total number of course units for the BEd programme depends on the requirements and guidelines given by the Faculty of Education. However, students who read for the BEd degree are requested to be in line with the requirements and regulations for a three-year degree in Arts up to Part II of the BEd programme.

Students opting to join the BEd programme from the second year are advised when selecting subjects in the first year in Arts to select at least 2 subjects that are taught in schools. The subjects that are taught in schools at present are Languages, Economics, Journalism, History, Geography, Political Science and Religious Studies.
