Months of entry
The Master of Teaching (MTeach) is a higher degree for education practitioners designed to enhance their professional learning. Participants' own educational contexts are central to enabling situated learning and critical engagement with theory, practice and policy. It provides intellectually challenging practice-based development opportunities.
UCL Institute of Education has been providing first-class teacher education, in partnership with schools and colleges in the London region for over 100 years. Centrally located in London, we are the preferred choice for Master's-level professional development for many classroom practitioners.
Participants are all current educational practitioners who are interested in the classroom as a focus for professional learning. The mixed-mode approach of the programme takes account of the demanding lives of teachers.
The programme provides ongoing support through its tutorial group system. This interactive environment fosters the development of a 'learning community' based on pedagogical and evidence-based practice.
Fees and funding

Qualification and course duration
Teaching is module and pathway dependent. The course is mixed mode utilising a combination of face-to-face, distance and online learning. The MTeach pathways reflect students\' career stages and/or professional interest. Tutorial groups share and critically analyse professional practice. This process is central to the development of a deeper understanding of subject pedagogy and the ways young people learn. Assessment includes critical evaluation of everyday teaching, portfolios, reflective journals and evidence studies.
