Course content

What constitutes good education and how can it be delivered most effectively? This flexible course, taught by tutors possessing extensive experience in educational settings, explores how education defines and contributes to the world around us. In understanding that education is much more than simply teaching and learning, you will begin to question many of the assumptions that lie beneath both policy and practice.

Why study MA Education at Middlesex University?

The core focus of this innovative MA is exceptional education. Our part-time course meets the needs of those who wish to further their knowledge of the theory and processes of education, but cannot commit to full-time studies. The course may be undertaken on an individual or collective basis, with groups of teachers and education professionals both eligible to enrol.

Structured so that assignments can be built into your working practice, the course will maximise the effectiveness of your teaching, leadership and management. We encourage participants to evaluate existing practices, develop new approaches and become immersed in action enquiry based research.

Middlesex's extensive history of delivering leading education courses ensures that you will benefit from the guidance of outstanding tutors who bring a wealth of professional experience to their teaching. As research-leaders, our academics are widely published across disciplines such as multilingualism, diversity and childhood development.
