We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The School of Education is one of the largest departments of education in the UK. It has a well-established reputation for the quality of its research and teaching which focus on issues relevant to teacher training and the improvement of education nationally and internationally. The School maintains and develops partnerships with schools and other educational agencies in order to inform and influence policy and practice, such as the prestigious National College for School Leadership. The School of Education is a major provider and facilitator of in-service and pre-service education and training for teachers and other educators. It is an internationally recognised centre for research, curriculum and professional development and training.
Students who meet the general entry requirements for the Masters courses can now choose to register for a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Masters level qualification. Students can progress from a Certificate to a Diploma without the award of a Certificate, or from the Diploma to an MA without the award of the Diploma. Please note that official approval is required for the transfer from the Diploma to the MA.
The School of Education Summer School provides an opportunity for students to study for a higher degree in Education during the summer vacation. Attracting participants from the UK and around the world, this is a vibrant learning community working with leading figures in the field of Education. Participants normally attend Nottingham for two consecutive summers to study the taught modules. After this, the degree is completed with a dissertation (MA) that fits the professional needs of each individual. Contact with tutors is maintained through email, telephone and mail, and students can access the electronic facilities of the library at any time and from any part of the world.
We currently have 700 registered students engaged in research, Masters level study, or postgraduate teacher training. Two thirds of our students study part-time. Approximately one third are from overseas.
International students are required to provide evidence of competence in English i.e. a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 (with 6.0 on the written test), or equivalent when registering for a Masters/Diploma/Certificate programme.
The University of Nottingham International Office ensures that international students have all the information they need about living and studying in Nottingham.

Most computer resource areas are available 24 hours a day and contain a large number of IBM PC-compatible workstations and some Unix workstations. The campus network connects workstations, central services and national networks, providing access to email, file transfer and the Internet.
