The MA Education is a stimulating part-time programme designed to develop and strengthen your identity, critical confidence and academic expertise as a serving educational professional – whether you’re in the early stages of your education career or you have extensive experience.

This MA puts emphasis on broadening your critical perspective on education, with a carefully weighted balance between sector-wide and context-specific content and tasks. Dedicated, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff will guide you through varied philosophical and disciplinary positions, with a focus on supporting you in articulating and strengthening your own expert critical voice.

Our programme is specifically designed to meet the needs of busy professionals, with evening and weekend sessions sensibly spaced over each year.
