Course summary

Course description

The MSc in Educational Leadership offers a fascinating insight into an arena that has changed remarkably over recent years. Leading and promoting optimal learning is the key challenge that confronts educational leaders, advisers, policy makers and governments. Finding the connections between leadership and learning is not easy and involves change and reform in organisations. These three key themes - leadership, learning and change - are the basis of this course.

This postgraduate degree will enable you to reflect upon practice in your organisation, identify areas of professional concern and become equipped to find solutions and lead change. The course is designed to be relevant to a wide range of practitioners in diverse settings internationally who consider themselves involved in education.

We recognise the importance of connecting theory with practice. Throughout the course you will be supported in developing a flexible set of professional inquiry skills to inform practice in your work setting. Your personal development will equip you to lead change in your organisation.

Teaching and learning

Studying by distance learning allows you to choose when and where you study, meaning you do not have to take a career break. Our award-winning library has world-class facilities for distance learning students. You will have full access to our support services and will be assigned a personal tutor. Our virtual learning environment offers a wide range of study support material, and you will be encouraged to connect with fellow students from around the world by engaging with e-tutor supported e-tivities.

Careers and employability

Throughout this course you will keep a Professional Development Portfolio which can be used to underpin applications for promotions in educational leadership.

Our PhD opportunities are very popular with students who have completed the Educational Leadership MSc and wish to pursue a particular research interest at doctoral level.

We are committed to training and developing outstanding leaders. We are proud to be able to support the career progression of so many teachers through the courses we offer, many of whom started their journey with us as PGCE students.
