Months of entry
The MA Education is designed to enhance your professional practice and help you make improvements which will make a positive difference either within the classroom or your particular work environment.
Highly flexible, it caters for educators with a diverse range of experience, development needs, and study requirements. It is suitable for teachers, those in leadership or policy-making roles, and other practitioners working in education or related settings.
You may choose an individually constructed programme, or follow a specialist route which may be reflected in your degree title. You may study full-time or part-time, and choose to study on campus or via blended or distance learning. You may also study single modules through our Professional Development in Education programme.
Whichever route you choose, you will be taught by academics with considerable experience as practitioners, and whose research sets the agenda, influences policy and leads to innovation in the classroom.
