Course summary

Overview

Are you a professional practitioner working in an educational setting? Are you curious about the teaching process, with a determination to understand and adapt your work to new challenges and different landscapes in education? Are you critical of the intersections between policy and practice? Are you ready to meet others who share your commitment and critical engagement with educational ideas? We hope that our MA in Education will excite and challenge you in equal measure.

About this course

If you are a graduate working in education and looking for academic and professional development and experience in research education, this could be the course for you. It is flexible, part-time, and is designed to be suitable for busy professionals. You can aim for the full MA degree (180 credits) from the start or begin with the smaller Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) and stop there or build credits on afterwards towards the MA. You may already have some credits (e.g. from a PGCE or a CPD course) which you may be able to use towards the MA, subject to certain conditions.

There are five modules of this Masters Course. The course materials are designed to encourage you to interpret the assignments in ways that will adapt to your current professional role and enable you to articulate your personal learning agenda. The tutors on the Research Education team will help you to formulate key research questions through reading that will extend your thinking and through reflection on your professional context.

Throughout your studies you will be questioning taken-for-granted assumptions about evidence-based practice, exploring the implications for alternatives and sharing the results of your research in order to influence professional practice. Our students are work-based learners who include Head Teachers, NQTs and RQTs from school settings. We have also had students who are Drama Practitioners, Musicians, Artists, Social Workers, FE Lecturers and work-based trainers in the industry. The essential criterion is that your work involves educational intervention and assessment in broad terms.

The course brings together those who have a common passion for education. If you have a keen interest in your own learning and the learning of others, a curiosity about the teaching process itself and a determination to understand and improve your own working context, then this course will excite and challenge in equal measure.
