Course summary

Course summary

  • Focus your studies on your interests including any age of education.
  • Explore contemporary debates, comparative understandings of education and innovative practice across a range of educational sectors.
  • Develop employability skills that link closely to your education specialism and career aims.

The MA Education is offered both full and part-time and is designed to extend your critical understanding of education in its broadest sense.

How you learn

Our course philosophy is that a supportive and inclusive learning environment is the key driver of all good educational experience. The way the course is delivered includes a range of activities, to inform you of key theoretical components, but also to facilitate independent thought and the development of critical enquiry.

You learn through:

  • in-class discussion and debate
  • group tasks
  • individual projects
  • tasks utilising digital platforms
  • case study analysis

Future careers

This course offers you flexible professional and personal development opportunities. It is ideal if you are a teacher, either experienced or recently qualified, or another educational practitioner working in an educational setting. It is also well suited to those in a role supporting some aspect of learning, or an education care role.

However, we also welcome students with an interest in education; there is not a requirement for professional experience. Many students progress to our masters course from undergraduate courses in a related discipline or have a specific interest in education that they would like to pursue.
