Course content

Overview

This flexible, online-based course reflects the needs of individuals and organisations, and will deepen and refine your capacity to reflect critically on the way you work.

Teaching on this course is underpinned by systematic practitioner inquiry and you will be encouraged to identify issues that are significant to your professional practice.

While each module has its own particular focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of historical, political and social contexts, appropriate literature and the shared experience of course members.

Study is flexible in order to meet the needs of individuals and organisations and includes:

  • a range of optional modules so you can tailor your degree to your personal and professional interests
  • different modes of delivery which take account of individual needs and professional contexts
  • exit points en route to a full masters programme

Key facts

Course details

The taught element of this course is made up of 120 credits, plus a 60-credit dissertation. It can be completed part-time over approximately two years, with a further eight months for the dissertation. You can choose to start in either September or February, and there are PGDip and PGCert exit points.

You will need to commit 10-15 hours per week, all year round. You will work collaboratively, for example, by contributing to online discussions within a specified time frame.

Assessment

Each 30-credit module is assessed by a 6,000-word written assignment. To complete the masters, you must achieve a pass of 50 on each assignment.

The 15,000-word dissertation is an original piece of work and should be related to one of the selected modules on an approved topic.
