About the course
The traditional route towards a Master's still suits many serving practitioners, allowing them the opportunity to work within a learning community of fellow professionals from differing backgrounds and with different perspectives.
Taught sessions are built around discussion, discovery, shared learning and peer review with tutor support and expertise immediately at hand.
All modules are constructed so that the focus of the work should be upon students’ individual interests and professional requirements.
The MA award is achieved for 180 credits gained.
Two award titles are offered as follows:
- MA EDUCATION gained through focusing on any professional interests of choice
- MA EDUCATION AND LEADERSHIP gained through demonstrating a leadership focus for 50% of study
