Course summary

Course description

Successful completion of our MSc Deaf Education course will give you the mandatory qualification to work as a Teacher of the Deaf. The MSc route will also support the development of research skills that can be applied to this field.

Rapid developments in audiology and our understanding of language, communication and educational practice make teaching and learning for deaf children an exciting area of study.

The course uses an evidence-based approach to meeting the diverse needs of deaf children and places a strong emphasis on the translation of theory to practice.

Our course has National College of Teaching and Learning (NCTL) approval, meeting the requirements of the mandatory qualification.

Most graduating students go on to teach and support deaf children in specialist teaching roles both in the UK and overseas, although there are also opportunities to continue academic research in this area.

Both MSc and PGDip options are available. There are a range of full-time, part time, e-blended and on campus learning routes. If you already have the PGDip from The University of Manchester you can take an additional unit to gain the MSc award.

Aims

This course aims to provide you with the skills, knowledge and understanding to teach deaf children and ensure they are able to achieve their full potential.

Teaching and learning

We have a range of ways to complete the programme up to Postgraduate Diploma level.

For example, the full-time option is two days a week and taught on campus.

The two years part-time on-campus option is taught on campus for one day a week. Both options have measures in place to ensure synchronous teaching through online technology in situations where social distance is in place.

The e-blended learning route is two years, part-time and provides the opportunity for you to learn at your own rate, at a time and place that suits you. The course is set within a framework of online support and workshops to ensure you have the chance to meet and share ideas. The e-blended course is an established and popular option for those at a distance and offers online and written materials with two face to face learning blocks on campus in the first year and two blocks on campus in the second year. All students undertake two four week placements over the course of study. Again, we have plans in place to ensure that learning takes place even if distancing rules prevent travel.
