The overall aim of this MA Education programme is to produce educators capable of operating at the highest levels within the educational arena, with the ability to integrate theory with practice and apply intellectual and academic rigour, informed by current educational research, to their professional context.
Applicants must have a relevant initial degree at 2:2 classification or above. International students must have an IELTS score of 6.0 or above.
It is also possible to enrol on the course if you are a non-graduate and have a minimum of two years' relevant experience.
By choosing the ALN pathway, I have had the chance to meet some amazing professionals who work in the field of Additional Learning Needs. I have had conversations that have intrigued and enriched my experience as a teacher and as a student and put into context the work that I am doing. The course has allowed me to become a more compassionate person in my personal life and professional life as it has allowed me to understand the diverse ways in which people see life.
In my role as a teacher, I hope to one day be able to work more directly in the area of additional learning needs, and the Masters has allowed me to become more confident in my ability to do this. It has also meant that in an ever-changing environment, I have kept my qualifications up to date if I wanted to become an Additional Learning Needs Coordinator in school.
I found studying the MA Education beneficial in both personal and professional contexts. It helped to further my confidence and communication skills, as well as develop my academic abilities and transferable skills. The range of assignment formats (written essays, presentations, blogs and case studies) has tested my use of analytical and written skills.
Completing my dissertation on technology in education and the Digital Competence Framework, ultimately led me to my role as Research Assistant for SHOUT4HE Erasmus+ project and enrol onto a PhD. I wholeheartedly believe that I would not be capable of doing my job and carrying out my responsibilities if it was not for my time on the MA Education course.
