Course content

Teachers, education professionals and recent graduates can take this opportunity to enhance their practice by reflecting on their own personal and professional experiences and developing further skills, knowledge and understanding of aspects of specific interest.

This course is available for full-time and part-time study. If you choose the full-time route, the course has a distinct international and comparative perspective, while the part-time option features optional additional modules relating to teacher-led research, mathematics and early years.

Distinctive approaches to learning and teaching

All of the teaching for this course is in small group format, such as seminars and workshops, enabling you to engage in discussion and debate. You will also be able to attend research seminars, day courses and other educational activities. Underpinning all of what we teach is the linking of theory and practice, allowing you to critically reflect on work-based issues, concerns and developments.

The MA in Education is available in various formats to suit your needs and what you are interested in. The full-time option is particularly targeted at international students, with a comparative flavour, while the part-time route has a self-reflective approach. For a more detailed subject focus, we also offer an Early Years pathwayEnglish Language Teaching pathwayManagement and Leadership pathwayMathematics pathway and an MA in SEN and Inclusion.

If you choose to take the full-time route, there are four modules that must usually be studied:

  • School and Classroom Cultures
  • Educational Leadership
  • International Perspectives on Education
  • Research methods

Throughout the course we encourage you to engage with other students and professional colleagues in order to develop critical approaches to your study of education and your practical teaching.
