St Mary’s, the first dedicated Teacher Education provider in the North of Ireland, continues to offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses (in English and in Irish) for the education of teachers. We offer students high quality learning, teaching and support, in partnership with over three hundred schools.
As part of its strategy to increase access to higher education, St Mary’s has developed a unique Liberal Arts honours degree programme. This programme combines the benefits of a well-grounded, broadly based education and the development of skills with a focus on employability.
