If your career involves educating other people and you'd like to improve your professional expertise or progress into a more senior role, our MA Education online degree is designed to help you.
You can tailor this course to your professional interests by studying specific modules, giving you a specialist pathway award at either Postgraduate Certificate or Masters level. You can choose from:
• MA Education • PG Cert/MA Education (Leadership and Management) • PG Cert/MA Education (International Perspectives) • PG Cert/MA Education (English for Speakers of Other Languages)
Enriching your career
Our MA Education is not a teaching qualification but previous students have benefited from this postgraduate degree, helping them to gain more senior roles, enriching their teaching, challenging their preconceptions and boosting their confidence.
This flexible course now offers two exit routes. If you are unable to commit to a full Masters but want to update your skills to complement your career aspirations, you can complete our 60 credit Postgraduate Certificate within a year in your preferred choice of specialist pathway. Once you've successfully completed the Postgraduate Certificate, you may wish to continue to the full Masters.
Be inspired by others
Students frequently tell us that they most enjoy hearing the diverse mix of experiences, ideas and opinions brought by others taking the course, especially when that challenges their own thinking. Online discussion forums make this possible, and with such a wide variety of people on the course, from the UK and overseas, that’s not surprising. Our tutors have many years’ experience in the education sector themselves, so they understand your profession and are sympathetic to the pressures of balancing study with a busy teaching job.
You’re in control
Studying online gives you the flexibility to study at the most convenient time and place for you. The course is divided into modules which are scheduled over fixed trimesters so there will be deadlines to meet; however you can organise your study time around your work and personal commitments in order to complete each module within the set time parameters.
Online class discussions are largely focused on contextualisation of theory to practice, so it’s stimulating, engaging and highly relevant to your day-to-day, professional life.
You can start this course in September, February and May.
You will usually need at least one of the following: A good undergraduate degree (2:2 or above) or equivalent Level 6 qualification.
