FdA Montessori Pedagogy


Studying for a Foundation Degree in Montessori Pedagogy (AMI 3-6) awarded by UEL may be just the course for you! Since the course is being offered in collaboration with the Maria Montessori Institute you will also receive the teaching Diploma awarded by the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), the organisation set up by Maria Montessori herself, to ensure the spread of authentic Montessori practice. The courses delivered by the Maria Montessori Institute have evolved directly from those first delivered by Maria Montessori and her son Mario between 1919 and 1951. The partnership between the Maria Montessori Institute and UEL combines expertise in training highly valued Montessori teachers with an outstanding reputation in teacher education and childhood studies.

Personal Statement

A personal statement is an essay that the student must write to apply to study at the university. Its purpose is to summarise your skills and experience and help you gain a place at your desired course. It must include the name of the university and the name of the course. You have to mention why are you applying to this particular university and what do you hope to achieve after the course, career wise. A well written personal statement will help you stand out in the crowd and secure you a place at your dream university. You can follow a specific guide to answer to some expected questions, however, you must not mention them in the essay. Have a clear, cursive structure and write a minimum of 250 words.
