About the course

The MA in Language and Education is designed for all those interested in languages and education and the role of languages in society. This covers a very broad field and will appeal to all those working in language teaching and learning, both internationally and nationally, whether teaching English as a Foreign Language/Second Language, or teaching second or foreign languages. It will also appeal to those fascinated by the world of linguistics and sociolinguistics.

Your career

We offer postgraduate courses that will launch your career in education or aid your continuing professional development.

Our graduates work in the UK and overseas in schools, universities, and local and national government. Some are teachers and lecturers. Others use their skills in policy development, education, administration, psychology and social work.

About us

We value creative teaching that challenges inequalities in the education system. We believe in increasing opportunities for education, for everyone. Our research has a direct impact on educational theory, policy and practice. We’re supporting the development of children, families and learning communities through dedicated research centres.

You’ll learn from world-class academics such as Professor Cathy Nutbrown and Professor Dan Goodley. Cathy, who teaches on three of our postgraduate courses, won an Outstanding Impact in Society award in 2013 for her work on literacy. Dan’s work on disability in education has been described as ground breaking.

Our research seminar programme gives you access to the latest findings, often before they’re published. The University’s library has online catalogues and databases, e-books and e-journals.

Structure, teaching and assessment

All MA courses follow a similar pattern with two core modules (1 and 4) and two subject-specific modules (2 and 3).

Teaching and learning takes place via lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion, active inquiry and investigations. Regular meetings with a personal tutor support and encourage your learning and understanding.

A weekly tutorial and a Study of Education course accompanies the taught modules.

There are no formal written examinations and assessment is by coursework and a 15–20,000-word dissertation.

Core modules

Critical Issues in Education and Educational Research; Language Acquisition, Learning and Pedagogy; Language, Society and Education; Qualitative Methodologies in Educational Research; The Practice of Research; Dissertation.

This course is for healthcare professionals involved in a teaching or training role who want to develop their skills and expertise in clinical and educational practice. You study the teaching skills needed to support and assess learners in the workplace.

It helps you to meet your organisation's training needs, aiming to ensure better educational experiences for all staff. The healthcare educator has a lead role in developing a flexible workforce that can address future challenges in healthcare delivery. By providing a clear link to patient outcomes, educators can help to address the variation in standards of healthcare education and training currently delivered.

As a dentist, doctor or allied health professional you can demonstrate your revalidation and continuing professional development as the course is mapped to recognised professional standards.

If you are a nurse, midwife or specialist community public health nurse you can gain registration as a nurse teacher with the Nursing and Midwifery Council. If you work in higher education settings then you can also apply for Fellowship with the Higher Education Academy after successfully completing the course.

You are introduced to contemporary issues in healthcare education that place the educator at the heart of service enhancement and better patient care. We explore with you your role as an educational leader and interprofessional educator.

Action learning sets with your peers enable you to explore key theories and strategies and then apply them critically to your practice. You have opportunities to rehearse skills and explore a variety of learning teaching and assessment strategies. Face-to-face or online workshops allow you to explore contemporary issues and instigate new educational opportunities in your workplace.

You develop teaching and learning skills applicable to various clinical settings. You also draw on current work-based teaching and learning to strengthen links between your professional practice and educational role.

During the course you design and develop learning packages that have an evidence-based approach. You evaluate a range of learning and teaching strategies and develop your personal teaching style, in line with your educational and specialist expertise.
Observed teaching practice is available where you teach small groups of students in the workplace or at the University. We encourage you to film your teaching practice and receive feedback on your performance. This helps inform your teaching practice and identify your strengths and weaknesses. You also develop on-going action plans to address these issues in the form of portfolios.

Both full-time and part-time students are taught alongside each other on the course. This ensures that you are part of a larger group and will be able to share ideas and discuss issues with a range of different professionals.

The distance learning route runs parallel, using collaboration tools via the University's virtual learning environment Blackboard. You learn in action learning groups and use discussion forums and web portfolios to demonstrate your new knowledge. Social media helps bring you together with your peers to share comments and create a strong course community.

We provide tailored support to ensure you gain the most out of your course including one-to-one tutorial support. You are taught by an enthusiastic and multiprofessional course team passionate about high quality education for better patient care.

About the course

Our graduates make great teachers. It’s that simple. The Initial Teacher Education (ITE) course helps you develop an understanding of research, policies and practice relating to education in general and secondary education in particular.

You’ll learn everything the qualified teacher needs to know about planning, teaching, learning, assessing, policies and processes.

Routes offered

We offer a provider-led route plus School Direct with a choice of four different clusters of schools.

The routes are all quite similar, but the main differences between the provider-led and the School Direct routes are:

You’ll have your two school placements in the schools within the cluster that you are attached to, rather than in any school across the partnership.

The schools in your cluster will have a greater input into the PGDE programme throughout the year.

There will be a strong possibility of securing employment within the cluster of schools that you are attached to, subject to availability and suitability.

Your career

We offer postgraduate courses that will launch your career in education or aid your continuing professional development.

We value creative teaching that challenges inequalities in the education system. We believe in increasing opportunities for education, for everyone. Our research has a direct impact on educational theory, policy and practice. We’re supporting the development of children, families and learning communities through dedicated research centres.

You’ll learn from world-class academics such as Professor Cathy Nutbrown and Professor Dan Goodley. Cathy, who teaches on three of our postgraduate courses, won an Outstanding Impact in Society award in 2013 for her work on literacy. Dan’s work on disability in education has been described as ground breaking.

Our research seminar programme gives you access to the latest findings, often before they’re published. The University’s library has online catalogues and databases, e-books and e-journals.

Structure, teaching and assessment

All MA courses follow a similar pattern with two core modules (1 and 4) and two subject-specific modules (2 and 3).

Teaching and learning takes place via lectures, seminars, tutorials, discussion, active inquiry and investigations. Regular meetings with a personal tutor support and encourage your learning and understanding.

A weekly tutorial and a Study of Education course accompanies the taught modules.

There are no formal written examinations and assessment is by coursework and a 15–20,000-word dissertation.

Core modules

Critical Issues in Education and Educational Research; Globalisation and Education; Globalising Curriculum, Assessment and Pedagogy; The Practice of Research; Dissertation.

A higher degree by research involves training in research methods and carrying out supervised research – a systematic high level study of a problem or topic and presentation of results as a written thesis.

Normally you register for PhD subject to confirmation in the first instance and get confirmation after about one year of full-time study or its part-time equivalent. You must have a relevant UK masters degree with a substantial research training element to apply for direct PhD registration. It is also possible to study for an MPhil.

Supervision is available in various research areas including:
-Education policy studies.
-TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages).
-Pedagogy and practice.
-Pedagogy and new technologies.
-Social inclusion.
-Education and disability.
-Autism.
-Early years education.
