Pedagogy

BALM Campus
Coursework is only the beginning of education at BALM. The programmes at BALM are designed to create an engaging environment that will help students grow academically, professionally and socially.

BALM's vision is grounded in the need to develop professionals who challenge status quo, and are embedded in a strong value framework that encourages the promotion of social inclusion, equity and justice. The pedagogy fosters a spirit of enquiry and academic rigour with a focus on self and reflection. The co-location of an academic institution with a mental health service is BALM’s unique offering to students to bridge the gap between theory and practice and help students adapt to the layered realities of social problems.

BALM prepares individuals for situations where several complexities intersect. Graduates are encouraged to think creatively, and grapple with concepts and theories.
