Asian University for Women (AUW), an independent international university chartered by the Parliament of Bangladesh and located in the Port City of Chittagong is inaugurating a two-year Masters of Education course beginning on January 16th, 2022.  The program is open to female candidates of origin from across the world who have completed at least a Bachelor of Arts or Sciences degree with excellent results.  This course will be taught in the English language in a hybrid form within fully equipped digitalized classrooms featuring both remote delivery of classes from Johns Hopkins University, Cornell University and Boston College and in-person group discussions led by highly trained graduate teaching fellows.

The program is primarily geared towards young women from Bangladesh and throughout the region who aspire to become secondary school leaders — in classroom teaching, educational entrepreneurship and management in creating new schools within underserved locations including in refugee settlements and in remote areas where quality education remains inaccessible. The course will also prepare students to employ empirical data, technical and analytical skills with a predisposition to critical analysis, monitoring and evaluation of outcomes in order to conduct social and economic analyses as well as shape effective evidence-based education policies and practice transformation. All admitted students will be required to complete a series of practical internships to bridge their theoretical understanding of relevant matters with appreciation of practical opportunities to deploy new skills and ideas. Furthermore, students will also be required to learn a UN language and be certified proficient in it upon graduation.

Annual cost of room, board and tuition is USD $15,000. AUW awards full scholarships that cover all such costs to admitted students who demonstrate financial need and a passion for promoting excellence and equity for adolescent girls’ education.

AUW adheres to principles that foster meritocracy and exercises the preferential option in choosing candidates from marginalized backgrounds. It does not discriminate based on race, religion, nationality, or sexual orientation.

The deadline for application is December 3rd, 2021.
