We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Secondary Education offer advanced training in the regulation, organisation and assessment of teaching and learning methods in secondary schools, high schools and some colleges.
Taught MA and MEd (Master of Education) degrees are typical for the field, though research-oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Education or Business Studies.
These courses aim to equip you with the skills and knowledge to critically engage with policy, curriculum standards and professional practices within secondary schools.
Training will cover the value, nature and purpose of education, particularly across contemporary international cultural perspectives. You will examine cultural diversity, social inclusivity and innovation within secondary education with means to improving current practices.
Careers may include working within a school as a subject leader or head teacher, working across schools providing education advice and consultancy services, or inspection and policymaking at both local and national levels.
Alternatively, you may work as a researcher, lecturers and teacher educator in higher education institutions, or educational services outside schools such as museums.
