Course content

  • Benefit from the opportunity to reflect on and challenge your professional experience.
  • Take part in lively discussions on contemporary issues in education and leadership.
  • Learn the practices that characterise effective leadership, and how to bring about change.

In a globally connected and rapidly changing world, education offers each individual the best chance of navigating an unknown future. You’ll explore the opportunities and challenges that educational leaders face as they are given greater autonomy to have a positive impact on pupils and learners.

This Master's in education management and leadership is designed for those who are interested in becoming, or are presently working as, mid-level and senior managers and leaders in schools or other educational organisations, in a variety of global contexts.

Drawing on internationally-based research, the MA Education (Leadership and Management) offers a critical and cultural understanding of leadership as a socially constructed and ethical practice.
