The MLitt in Education is a research degree, aiming to support students in engaging in an educational project of the highest academic standard, aligned with their own research interests. Students work with a lead supervisor and the support of the departmental advisory team, to undertake research activity and write a masters thesis. This research work is supported by a customised series of taught modules (agreed annually with the department and the supervisor) which is completed with a cohort of fellow research students.
Students will normally enter the programme following completion of a Master’s level degree in Education or a related discipline, and with substantial (normally at least 5 years) of professional experience. Recognising the experience and prior educational experiences of students, an individual programme of study will be developed for each student in conjunction with his/her supervisor and approved by the student’s advisory team and/or the head of department. This individual work programme will seek to provide a balance of inputs including (i) insights into a range of thinkers and ideas in education, (ii) research skills, (iii) academic skills including critical reading and academic writing, and (iv) opportunities to engage critically with the material with a group of interested peers. Students will normally take taught modules to the value of 30 credits over the course of their structured PhD. Students may apply for a transfer to the PhD programme.
