Course content

Our well established MSc in Educational Research is recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as meeting their current training guidelines for the preparation of doctoral students.

The overall purpose of this MSc is to prepare you for the independent conduct of educational research. You will acquire general social science research skills that can be used in different contexts and applied to a variety of problems, and also have the opportunity to specialise in a particular field of education within a research preparation framework.

Our MSc is relevant to students with different interests:

*Doctoral research students:
The programme provides excellent preparation for a PhD. The four taught modules of the MSc are required research training for all MPhil/PhD students. The School has a wide range of research interests, which are practically reflected in the topics of our Research Groups.

*Students interested in a Masters programme that prepares them in educational research knowledge and skills:
Some students wish to do an educational research programme without having decided whether to undertake a Doctoral programme.

*Students wishing to undertake a Masters programme in a specific area of education:
Other students may wish to study a particular field of education at Masters level. This programme enables specialisation within a research preparation programme (eg, post-compulsory education, or personal and social education). The specific area of study can be studied within each of the four taught research modules and become the focus for the dissertation.

Studying full-time, part-time or at a distance

Students attend one or two weekly twilight sessions during term-time dependent on whether the full- or part-time option is selected. The programme can also be studied with no attendance at Exeter by distance learning, which is particularly useful for international students and UK students who cannot travel easily to Exeter.
