Entry requirements

Students are required to have an Honours degree from a recognised Higher Education Institution in the UK or an equivalent degree from overseas. Equivalence of overseas students' academic qualifications is assessed by NARIC (see http://www.naric.org.uk). The content and subject matter of a student's first degree is open. In some circumstances, professional work in education (e.g. PGCE) or related field can be assessed as appropriate credit for 'prior learning' (APL) and a reduction in the number of credits required to pass the Masters can be negotiated.

Course content

This programme provides an opportunity to study educational issues in depth and will cover policy, practice and education theory within an international context. Education is much more than the study of teaching. Our full-time Masters in Education is a programme designed to get you questioning the assumptions that lie beneath educational policy and practice. Both routes enable study in the field of educational theory and practice with global and international dimensions and you will have the chance to work alongside students from other countries.
