These awards have been developed after extensive consultation with employers, teachers, education professionals and students. The programme team aims to play a key role in supporting the continuing professional development of teachers and education professionals.

The key benefits of studying this programme include:

  • We take into consideration the 60 Master's level credits accrued by PGCE students, thus allowing them to fast track through the programme.
  • Full and part-time home and international students from the various pathways study together, allowing for exchange of ideas across professions and nationalities.
  • The period of candidature (up to 5 years part-time and 2 years full-time) allows students greater flexibility with their study schedule.
  • Two of the modules are now delivered in blended format, allowing for a clicks and mortar approach to learning.
  • In addition to a dedicated supervisor, dissertation students also have 4 advanced research sessions during their dissertation year.​​
