Course content

This research-based course is designed for those working in the field of education at all levels. It is suitable for teachers, lecturers and administrators working in schools, post-compulsory or university sectors. Although it is not a teaching degree and does not provide QTS, it is ideal for those who have completed an accredited teacher-training programme or degree and wish to study the field of education further.

The course allows you to investigate a range of issues impacting on education in general and your own organisation in particular. We want you to challenge your thinking.

Choose from four pathways:

  • MA Education
  • MA Educational Leadership and Management
  • MA Special and Inclusive Education
  • MA Teaching and Learning


You will study five modules. Research Skills and Education Policy and Practice are taught in a classroom environment. The other three modules are based around supported tutorials with tutors and peers. You will have an initial tutorial to discuss your direction and aims within the module. Further tutorials are available dependent on mutual need.
