Course content

The quality of education plays an important role in facilitating learning. As an educator, you make a difference to the community through inspiring the next generation of learners. Educators need to understand the role they play in their students' learning and know what impacts the success of their learners. Gain an insight into what affects student performance and discover ways to develop your learners' reflective skills while improving your own too.

A relevant, context-based course

Our MA Education course allows you to personalise your studies to suit your own professional development. By linking academic theory with educational policy and your own everyday educational practice, you'll be equipped to make a real contribution to developments in your workplace.

Critically analyse and explore the relationship between theoretical models in education and professional practice, as well as examining educational policies in a range of contexts. You'll also learn how to conduct ethical and robust educational enquiry, developing your research skills to prepare you for the next steps in your career.

A tailored, student-centred approach

Our student-centred course ensures you'll reflect on your own practice and develop your expertise based on your academic interests and specific professional context. Build a critical, reflective and enquiring mindset that you can apply to your own workplace as you become a self-reliant leader.

Study remotely through our online learning community, where you'll benefit from online discussion boards and group forums with your peers and tutors. You'll have the opportunity to share experiences, provide mutual support and gain expertise from other education professionals working in the field.

A flexible course delivery

Thanks to its part-time delivery, you'll have the opportunity to work through your online course materials at your own pace. This enables you to fit your studies around your other commitments, which will suit you if you're currently working in professional practice.

This MA Education course is aimed at recently qualified teachers or practising education professionals who are looking to take between three to five years to study their chosen qualification. Many of the modules can also be taken separately as standalone modules, offering you opportunities in continual professional development.
