Course summary

The PGCE-MEd Primary Master's is intended for education professionals, policymakers and researchers at any stage of their career. Many students have relevant international experience and interests. We aim to fuse research and theoretical understandings about primary or elementary education with current priorities in policy and practice. You will have the opportunity to:

  • enhance your educational understanding and practice through critical reflection, study and research;
  • critically engage with the best quality national and international educational research that has relevance to primary education;
  • carry out an individual and collaborative critical enquiry into significant educational issues and practice; and
  • develop your thinking in order to contribute to informed policy and practice analysis and improvement in the primary phase and your own work setting.

By the end of the programme, students will have:

  • gained a comprehensive understanding of research techniques, including thorough knowledge of how to find and use international literature applicable to primary/ elementary education;
  • demonstrated commitment to the application of research-based and professional knowledge about primary or elementary education, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create further understanding of their field;
  • developed capacities for critical evaluation of research findings, techniques and methodologies; and
  • demonstrated self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research
