MA Education, full-time

Course Description

This research-based course is designed for those working in the field of education at all levels. It is suitable for teachers, lecturers and administrators working in schools, post-compulsory or university sectors. Although it is not a teaching degree and does not provide QTS, it is ideal for those who have completed an accredited teacher-training programme or degree and wish to study the field of education further.

The course allows you to investigate a range of issues impacting on education in general and your own field in particular. We want you to challenge your thinking.

Each module has an assignment attached to it that is linked to your own experience, applying theory and practice and ensuring that your own working practices gain practical benefits from your study.

Specialist pathways

Choose from four pathways:

MA Education
MA Educational Leadership and Management
MA Special and Inclusive Education
MA Teaching and Learning

How will I learn?

You will study five modules. Research Skills and Education Policy and Practice are taught in a classroom environment. The other three modules are based around supported tutorials with tutors and peers. You will have an initial tutorial to discuss your direction and aims within the module. Further tutorials are available dependent on mutual need.

All modules, except for Reflection on Continuing Professional Development Experience, are research projects based on your area of professional interest. You will discuss your research proposal during your tutorials with your named supervisor and then be expected to study independently for around 300 hours over that 16 week module. Your final dissertation takes place over a longer period.

Taught sessions and tutorials are at our Clifton campus. The course can on occasion be undertaken in your own institution by prior arrangement. A part-time study mode is also available.
