MA in Residential Education

University of Buckingham School of Education

Part time September MA 12-15 months

About the course

The MA in Residential Education is a one year, part-time course for those working in or with an interest in boarding schools. It is offered in partnership with the Boarding Schools’ Association.

This course allows those with experience in boarding, who are keen to research, to write about a topic of interest to them. The heart of the MA is a 12,000-15,000 word dissertation. You will do a literature review, which informs your dissertation, and you will learn about different research methods. You will be expected to read widely.

To take this MA you only need to spend one day away from your school. The date in 2020 is Saturday 19 September. Although this day is not compulsory, we do strongly encourage you to attend as it contains important course information.
