Applicants are mostly practicing teachers across the age range from pre-school to post compulsory education. Our experience tells us that students benefit most when participants reflect the whole of the school community and we welcome applications from other suitably qualified education professionals, for example mentors or other support professionals.
Applicants to the Programme in Education MA should have a good honours degree at 2.2 or above.
Months of entry
The course offers a unique opportunity for experienced professionals to gain a practice-focused higher degree. Specialisms in Autism and SEND are also available. Individual MA modules can also be taken as Continued Professional Development (CPD). Accreditation of Prior Learning is also possible within the all the MA programmes at LSBU. If you have completed EIC and SEND options at LSBU you are a third of the way there! (APEL from other universities is also possible).
Students will gain much from working with a diverse group of peers and tutors from a wide range of educational backgrounds. The close association between the Centre for Educational Research and the MA provides opportunities to work with like-minded research-active peers within a lively and supportive learning community. Opportunities for accreditation of prior learning are available to participants with an appropriate background and this should be discussed with the admissions tutor who will also explain the CPD processes on request.
Modes of study:
- Within a partnership school as part of a school cohort.
