Course summary

The MA (Ed), Postgraduate Diploma/ Postgraduate Certificate is a part-time programme of study for teachers and other educational professionals who wish to extend their academic and professional development.

It is therefore conceptualised and delivered in ways that will enhance the intellectual development of participants as individuals (personal development), enable participants to reflect on and act on issues and priorities which are relevant to them in their educational establishments (staff development) and provide them with insight into developments within education taking place outside their own schools and institutions which may have an impact directly or indirectly on themselves as practitioners (professional development).

We offer opportunities to design a bespoke PgCert taken from our suite of level 7 modules. You could follow your area of interest by choosing two modules from the module options that can be seen below.

Why choose this course

  • The programme as a whole is designed to support teaching as a research-based profession.
  • We believe that practice is improved through reflection-on-action and that practitioner research must play a fundamental part of school improvement and professional development.
  • The purpose of the MA (Ed) is not to detach theory from practice but to enable theory to inform practice.
  • The degree is designed to build on the realities of educational practice and support individual teachers in their professional development and/ or career objectives.
  • The MA (Ed) presents an opportunity for teachers to create communities of learning and teaching networks that will outline the time spent studying on the programme.

Career Opportunities

Most students engaging in this programme are employed in educational settings. The experience of the MA(Ed) is often transformative, leading to an enhancement of learning and teaching and often leading to promotion within the profession.

Students can also exit with PGDip and PGCert.
