Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

This is a cross-disciplinary research degree with equivalent learning outcomes to a PhD, including its level of award and title. It aims to extend and deepen your knowledge of contemporary educational issues and will help to refine your research skills by providing you with the opportunity to undertake a research project within your chosen professional field.

You will enhance your understanding of research and its application, engaging in critical discussions and reflections that involve in-depth consideration of the relationships between theory and practice. The academic portion of this programme consists of three taught units. The thesis component involves one substantive research study of 60,000 words.

Support will be provided in your first year of taught study through evening and Saturday face-to-face sessions on campus, combined with regular meetings with your supervisor. You will continue to be supported throughout the remainder of your research programme by your supervisory teams and as you engage in the University's research culture and network with like-minded peers.

This course provides you with the opportunity to progress your professional learning and development through an extended period of research-based study with the intention of making original contributions to knowledge.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
