Course summary

Our MSc Mathematics with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is a follow-on qualification from our PGCE Mathematics programme. Following the successful completion of a research methods course and a school-based research project, you will be qualified to master's level which, in addition to your PGCE, will position you strongly in the broad field of maths teaching.

The structure of the MSc programme has been uniquely designed to allow you to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and complete your master's degree by the end of your second year of teaching, at the same time as keeping your first year of teaching (Newly Qualified Teacher year) free from any academic commitments.

The Mathematics with Qualified Teacher Status programme is practically based, with 24 of the 36 weeks spent in our partner schools. University weeks are organised with half a day on general professional studies and two full days on mathematics education. Work is set to be done on the remaining days of the week which will feed into the mathematics education sessions.

At the end of your PGCE year, if you are eligible and you decide to continue with your master's study, you can enrol onto our Research into Teaching and Learning module. This module is worth 30 credits and is completed prior to you starting your Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) year.

Following your NQT year, you will enrol onto the final module - the Teaching Physical Education Research Project. This is a distance learning module and involves one-to-one supervision with internationally renowned researchers.

Importantly, this project module offers you the opportunity to continue your professional development by conducting research on a pedagogical innovation and development in the context of teaching physical education relevant to your work context. Upon successful completion of this second module, you will be awarded an MSc Education with QTS Mathematics.

Who should study this programme?

These are some of the strengths and characteristics you’ll need to get into teaching and find it a fulfilling career:

communication skills
organisational skills
a desire to bring out the best in people
resilience, energy, stamina, and a willingness to shoulder responsibility
flexibility and a willingness to adapt and get to grips with new developments
self-awareness.
