We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Further Education allow postgraduates to specialise in post-compulsory schooling in sixth forms, colleges and other environments.
Courses range from taught MA and MSc degrees, to research-based MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Education, Communication or Management Studies.
Courses in this field gear you towards a career in Further Education, by training you in the processes, governance and standards applied within this part of the secondary school and college sector. These courses are often interdisciplinary in nature, combining concepts from a range of disciplines including communications, management, psychology and anthropology.
You may explore pedagogical approaches both nationally and internationally, including differences in curriculum style and professional practise. Economic processes within the sector are also given keen consideration, particularly regarding funding and legislation, professional identity, and the role of technology in teaching.
Careers in the field are highly varied, but may include further education management in a local or national institution, special needs and disability teaching, or even public policy and roles in local government.
