B.Ed. (Bachelor of Education)
Teaching has always been one of the most popular career choices among students. However, to become a teacher at pre-nursery, nursery, primary, secondary and senior secondary levels in schools or to become a professor at the college/university level, aspirants need to possess the right qualifications.
B.Ed is the bachelor’s degree undertaken to take up teaching as a profession in schools. However, it is worth knowing that a B.Ed or Bachelor of Education is not an undergraduate degree and to pursue this course one needs to have completed his/her graduation. Thus, B.Ed is a professional course and right after completing this course, students can get a job at the school level. However, it may be noted that those who wish to become school teachers of senior secondary classes need to have a post-graduation degree before pursuing a B.Ed.
The B.Ed course duration is typically two years. Candidates can pursue B.Ed in distance education as well as regular mode. B.Ed course fee varies from college to college and depends on different parameters such as the type of institution (government/ private) and mode of education (regular/ distance).
