Course content

The MA in Education will provide education practitioners, policy-makers and educators working in relevant organisations within public, private and voluntary sectors, with the key knowledge, skills and abilities required to support them in sustaining and enhancing the effectiveness of their practice. With a wide range of modules and the chance to specialise, you can tailor your learning to your professional aims and career aspirations while developing your practice. The flexible curriculum reflects the latest developments in education and is delivered by a team of experienced teaching staff with specialist areas of expertise.

The compulsory module engages students with critical analysis of contemporary educational policy and the factors that have shaped it both within the UK and internationally. Students will be encouraged to consider theories underpinning the socio-cultural context of education and then reflect upon their own experience of professional practice. In the final stage of their MA, students will complete a dissertation focusing on a research topic of their choice.

You will be encouraged to reflect on your own practice, taking the skills and knowledge you gain to implement strategies that meet the needs of your learners. The School of Education is well connected, and guest speakers bring wider perspectives to the modules you study.


  • Critical Perspectives on Education Policy
  • Research in Education
  • Advanced Practice in Teaching, Learning and Assessment
