Designed to provide an inter-disciplinary approach for educators, this flexible course enables you to fit study with your interests and areas of practice. It has been developed with your needs in mind and offers a great deal of flexibility both in its structure and methods of delivery.
Intended to enable teachers to demonstrate their understanding of how the boundaries of knowledge are advanced through research, candidates will be expected to carry out a sustained research study, critically reviewing the current knowledge base of a specific area of educational practice, synthesizing research findings, reaching appropriate conclusions and making appropriate recommendations for practice.
Monthly support sessions are provided to supplement individual research supervision and formal teaching on research methods. Research supervisors are drawn from our experienced education staff and are matched to the research interest of the individual participants undertaking the programme.
The programme is offered as an inter-professional master’s degree for education professionals working in primary, secondary or tertiary education (further or higher), or practice education in health and social care.
