Course content

Our part time Educational Practice and Research MA is designed for school teachers, further and higher education lecturers, and other practitioners currently working in an educational environment in the UK. It’s the ideal course if you’re looking to extend your professional development by studying for a Master’s level degree.

At UEA, you’ll discover a stimulating and challenging environment in which you can discuss and analyse classroom practice through a broad range of optional modules. You’ll benefit from a supportive learning community thanks to our diverse range of teaching and assessment methods, and our flexible learning options.

You will also have the chance to carry out research in an area that interests you, personally and professionally. This is your chance to explore and add to the latest thinking in your field, as well as cultivating greater understanding and innovation in your own teaching practice.
