Difference between B.Ed and D.Ed course


Both B.Ed and D.Ed courses will equip individuals with teaching skills. Although these are teaching courses, the training programs are entirely different. B.Ed is bachelors’ degree in Education whereas D.Ed is diploma in Education. B.Ed is an undergraduate academic training program that carves up the graduates as teachers in schools. However, D.Ed is a diploma course that qualifies intermediates as nursery teachers in kindergartens. The qualifications to pursue these two programs are also different.

B.Ed courses and career opportunities

Aspirants who have completed graduation from Science or Arts disciplines are qualified to do the bachelors’ course in education. They should have passed the course from a certified University with not less than 55% marks in the qualifying exam. Those who have completed the B.Ed course can seek out for career in public or private sector. Professionals with good percentage and outstanding potential can search out for employments in leading international schools or other educational institutes.

D.Ed courses and career opportunities

The eligibility criterion to pursue the D.Ed course is a pass in the XII exam from a recognized Board or equivalency. Those who have completed the course have multi-choices. Either they can do the B.Ed course or they can get employed in nurseries or educational institutions. Since there are many kindergartens all over the world, the job scope for these professionals is also in a hike. In vast developed cities, most of the parents send their kids to day care’s. Professionals who have completed the D.Ed course can search out for jobs in day care’s or in any other Government or private schools. D.Ed passed outs are even licensed to do start nurseries, in which they can provide education to many kids.

Key differentiators between B.Ed and D.Ed course

Although B.Ed. and D.Ed are concerned with education training programs, these are entirely different ones. As the former qualifies the aspirants to become school teachers up to 12th, D.Ed qualifies aspirants to become nursery teachers.
