International Postgraduate Certificate in Education (iPGCE)


Course Description

About the course

This course will help you develop a deep understanding of planning, teaching and assessment strategies, along with helping you to get the most out of new technologies. It will help you to develop links between practice, theory and research through reflection on your own teaching, in order to enhance your professional performance.

Your career

We offer postgraduate courses that will launch your career in education or aid your continuing professional development.

Our graduates work in the UK and overseas in schools, universities, and local and national government. Some are teachers and lecturers. Others use their skills in policy development, education, administration, psychology and social work.

About us

We value creative teaching that challenges inequalities in the education system. We believe in increasing opportunities for education, for everyone. Our research has a direct impact on educational theory, policy and practice. We’re supporting the development of children, families and learning communities through dedicated research centres.

You’ll learn from world-class academics such as Professor Cathy Nutbrown and Professor Dan Goodley. Cathy, who teaches on three of our postgraduate courses, won an Outstanding Impact in Society award in 2013 for her work on literacy. Dan’s work on disability in education has been described as ground breaking.

Our research seminar programme gives you access to the latest findings, often before they’re published. The University’s library has online catalogues and databases, e-books and e-journals.

Structure, teaching and assessment

All MA courses follow a similar pattern with two core modules (1 and 4) and two subject-specific modules (2 and 3).

Teaching and learning takes place via lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion, active inquiry and investigations. Regular meetings with a personal tutor support and encourage your learning and understanding.

A weekly tutorial and a Study of Education course accompanies the taught modules.

There are no formal written examinations and assessment is by coursework and a 15–20,000-word dissertation.

Core modules

Teaching and Learning Part 1; Teaching and Learning Part 2; Small-Scale Research Study.

Teaching

Following an initial study school the majority of this programme will be taught via online modules with individual online tutorial support and independent study.

Assessment

Each module will require the submission of a 4,000-word assignment and participation in online course discussions.
