Course content

Middlesex University Dubai offers you the opportunity to undertake a part-time, postgraduate degree directly related to your work in the educational field. The programme's individual design is aimed at helping you achieve change in an educational field of your choosing, whether you are a teacher, an administrator, or indeed anyone with a professional interest in education. Therefore it is relevant to all levels of the education spectrum: including primary, secondary and tertiary education. The courses cover a wide range of educational theory and practice, and introduce you to educational research methods.

The MA Education offers you the unique ability to choose your area of specialisation through opting for the MA Education (Leadership and Management), the MA Education (Teaching and Learning). The initial areas of study are the same in each case so you can choose your area of specialisation in your dissertation.

The MA Education research process prioritises problem-solving, with a strong emphasis on design as the medium of change. The application of theory is channelled through models relevant to education, leadership and management. Strategies relevant to action theory and discourse will greatly assist you in structuring your project/dissertation, which owes much of its success to collaborative sessions with tutors and other students. You will also have ample opportunity to relate your studies to your own professional practice as you complete the assignments in the programme.

Information for international students

We understand that moving to another country can be a very daunting prospect for many students, especially if it is their first time away from their family, which is why we make it our priority to ensure that international students feel welcome, settled and part of the community.

The University has over 3,600 students from more than 100 nationalities, and we encourage students to embrace the cultures of others as well as sharing their own. Events such as ‘World Food Day’ and our highly anticipated ‘International Day’ enable our students to celebrate and promote the culture and traditions of their home countries.
