Course summary

Our MA in Education is a one-year, part-time course for teachers and school leaders to develop expertise in the field of education through critical evaluation of research and scholarship. The course builds on learning from a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).

The course consists of a literature review, which informs a research project to explore an educational issue with a view to improving the candidate’s own professional practice or that of others. The study culminates in a dissertation involving a candidate’s own project in their school or research in a wider field of education.

Course content

You are normally expected to come for only one day to the University of Buckingham. On this day you will study:

  • Conducting a literature review
  • Academic writing of a literature review and critical evaluation
  • Research methods
  • Project/dissertation planning and design
  • Ethics in educational research

If you cannot come to the UK then we require a minimum of ten trainees who can come together in one city in August or September and the tutor will come to you.
