Course summary

Programme overview

Our education master's degrees give you the opportunity to design a tailored programme of study that suits your cultural and learning needs. You will be able to specialise and receive an award in a particular disciplinary area.

This pathway is designed for UK and international mathematics teachers and other professionals working in mathematics education, from primary schools to post-16 education. You will be supported in integrating the theory and practice of teaching and learning mathematics by:

being an active researcher of your own and others' practice, including reworking your own practice;
carrying out small-scale research projects, one of which can act as a pilot project for the major work of your dissertation;
engaging with research literature, especially the current journals and activity of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education;
engaging with new developments in teaching and learning mathematics;
updating your mathematics knowledge;
writing assignments that show the emergence of a theoretical frame, presenting a literature search and developing ideas from a seminar;
becoming confident with presentation, argumentation, research and ICT skills.
