Course content

The Master of Education Leadership is part of a suite of Master’s qualifications deigned to support those working in the education sector in all its breadth.

In common with all Master’s degrees, it is made up of three stages: the postgraduate certificate (60 credits at level 7), the postgraduate diploma (a further 60 credits at level 7), the Master’s (a further 60 credits at level 7). Progress onto the diploma and the Master’s is dependent upon successful completion of the previous stage.
To provide maximum flexibility, the course is available as individual stages leading to the relevant award. You can then enrol for the next stage to progress. Alternatively, you can enrol for the all-through version with one enrolment and progression on successful completion of the previous stage. Modules need to be completed within specified time frames.
Through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) scheme, students might be able to make a claim against certain modules to count towards academic credits to a maximum of 60 credits. There are two entry points to the course each year; Semester 1 (September/October) or Semester 2 (January/February).
