Course content

This is a part-time course for teachers seeking to further develop their pedagogical skills and knowledge. Students gain an in-depth understanding of teaching and learning within the context of today’s schools and other educational establishments.

The course is taught mostly on weekday evenings with the occasional Saturday session. You will explore education theories and cutting-edge research, and discuss how these can influence your teaching and the learning of your pupils. You will also develop your own research interests and expertise, building a strong foundation for your future career prospects.

This course is flexible, so depending on where you are in your career, the modules that you take will reflect that. This course is suitable fro those who are qualified professional practitioners in education.

You will leave the course with the skills to analyse your own teaching practice and to use the latest research to provide your pupils with a varied way of learning. You will be equipped to offer creative ways of accessing work, thus ensuring they have the best possible education.

The MA in Educational Practice is awarded upon the successful completion of 180 credits taught at Master's level. If you have a PGCE, subject to approval by the University, the course will allow you to transfer up to 60 credits which you already have earned towards this postgraduate course. This may shorten the length of study. If you qualified through the undergraduate route or you have QTS, you will need to take 3 additional modules or, alternatively, you can opt to study one of our Postgraduate Certificate courses to gain the 60 credits that those with a PGCE would normally have, which would also provide you with an emerging area of specialism in education.
