About the course

During this one-year, full-time course you will be focusing on educational policy and practice in changing international contexts. The course is ideal for educational professionals including teachers, administrators and managers. You will develop specialised professional interests throughout the course, especially with your dissertation.

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 Tom Billington, Professor Elizabeth Wood and Professor Dan Goodley. Tom’s research in critical educational psychology has shifted the ways in which psychologists can and should view young people in ways that are more empowering for young people and their families. Elizabeth’s work is internationally renowned for her critical interventions into the lives of young children, illuminating the significance of play in raising the well-being of young children. 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
