Course content

We have designed this part-time course specifically for working media and creative teachers in schools, colleges and higher education institutions, but it will also be of interest to any teachers who want to know more about how media - and particularly media technologies - can be used in teaching and learning.

This programme of study is also ideal for any team leaders or heads of department who oversee the teaching of media and creative subjects, and for those in higher education with a primarily pedagogic approach to the creative and media field.

You'll predominantly be working online to complete this course, with two residential sessions per year allowing you to meet other doctoral students in your cohort and share your ideas.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language you'll need:

  • IELTS (Academic) 6.5 with minimum 5.5 in each component or equivalent.
