Months of entry
The Master of Teaching (MTeach) is a higher degree for education practitioners which aims to enhance their professional learning. It provides intellectually challenging and sustained practice-based development opportunities. It includes university-based sessions and mandatory online components.
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 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. This means that the MTeach will be comprised of evening and Saturday face-to-face sessions - an average of three per module - and ongoing online discussions.
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.
Flexible: up to 5 years;
Fees and funding
Fee UK/EU Full-time: See fees note (below); Fees for flexible, modular study are charged pro-rata to the appropriate full-time Master's fee taken in an academic session: £1,321 per 30-credit module, £2,642 for the 60-credit dissertation for 2017/18. The total fees for any academic year will therefore be determined by the number of modules taken.
Qualification and course duration
Teaching is via a combination of face-to-face (including two or three sessions on Saturdays or evenings for most modules) 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 everyday teaching, portfolios, reflective journals and evidence studies.
