Course summary

This programme offers an opportunity for Higher Education (HE) professionals to deepen their understanding of principles, theoretical concepts and the policy context of HE. Practice-based specialist modules are combined with modules supporting the development of research skills, culminating in a dissertation for the MA. The emphasis throughout is on a critical understanding of the HE context and its implications for academic work in the 21st century. This programme aims to: develop your knowledge and skills by focusing on principles, concepts and theoretical perspectives relevant to the study of higher education (HE); develop your capacity to analyse the implications of principles and policy for HE contexts and practice; enable you to design, execute and communicate the results of a research project in your specialist area of study. Our students are higher education professionals at various stages of their careers, ranging from early career teachers to lecturers to experienced senior leaders. Throughout, we aim to enhance students’ understanding and capacity for critical analysis of the contexts and practices of higher education. The MA in Higher Education further encourages students to reflect upon their own professional experiences through critical engagement with topics of academic interest. After completing the MA, recent graduates have gained promotion within their existing roles, taken up new employment or commenced PhD study. Students will also achieve PgDip in this course.
