Master of Education in Special Needs Education Degree Programme

The Master of Education in Special Needs Education Degree Programme, like all the other programmes offered by OUSL, is designed for study through the distance mode. It is a 66 credit study programme of two-year (02) duration which is the Level 10 of Sri Lanka Qualification Framework. However, as wider knowledge and critical attitudes are expected from students following a higher degree programme, printed texts are not provided. Instead reading lists and handouts relevant to each course of study will be distributed among the students as and when necessary. As a student reading for a higher degree, it is essential that you engage in self-study.
