Course summary

The master’s course in Education Studies aspires to introduce the most important questions and problems by which the discipline of education studies is characterised, and to the methodologies and methods that are used within education studies to answer those questions. In addition to the core modules designed to give you a solid foundation for understanding educational processes you'll have the flexibility to choose a pair of modules from an exciting range of specialist classes to satisfy your personal and professional needs.

Develop a solid foundation for understanding transformative processes in all cultural contexts
Enhance practice and career opportunities in the broader field of formal and informal education
Gain a grounding in research methods and reasoning.


You'll be assessed through written coursework that draws on academic study and reflection on practical experiences in education. You'll be individually supported to write a 12,000 to 15,000-word dissertation on a negotiated topic of interest.


The MSc Education Studies is designed for people who wish to explore a diverse range of issues and perspectives that make up education. The course prepares for professional careers which are dependent on a thorough and critical understanding of educational processes in their cultural context and the ways in which they contribute to the formation of the individual person.

As such, it addresses educational and formational processes not only with regard to formal education, i.e. schooling, but is concerned with all forms of education, that is: with all processes where the learning and (trans)formation of a person is initiated, guided, or supported.
