MA Education is a flexible one year full-time, or two years part-time, programme for primary or secondary school teachers that wish to develop the educational understanding, analytical skills and leadership qualities necessary to improve pupil development and achievement in schools.

Our programme provides you with the opportunity to learn more about curriculum, school management and leadership, as well as information technology and research methods.

MA Education is also appropriate for international students that would like to broaden their knowledge and understanding of different aspects of educational theory and practice.

We designed this programme to aid the professional development of experienced teachers within the context and atmosphere of the latest research in education. We offer a wide range of specialist module subjects so you can tailor the programme to your own specific needs.
