Why this course?
The MEd in Education Studies allows you to put together a personalised pathway of modules drawing from across the whole of the MEd Programme. Education Studies can be combined with other areas from within the wider MEd programme at the University of Strathclyde
This course is ideal for those who want to build a broad-based study of education without specialising early in a single area.
The part time version of the MEd in Education Studies is very flexible and we welcome relevant Masters credits that you may have accumulated from earlier study of other courses or at other institutions.
The flexible nature of the course allows you to gain Masters accreditation for professional activities that you’re carrying out as part of your current professional role, such as curriculum development or school or workplace improvement.

This course is available to study full or part-time.
In the full-time route, you’ll study three core modules, including Critical Reading & Writing, in addition to some elective and optional modules. You’ll also undertake a two-part dissertation.
The part-time route is similar to that of the full-time, except you only study one core module – Critical Reading & Writing.
You’ll carry out a research project of your choice, which is divided into two parts.
In the first part, you’ll develop your understanding of appropriate research methods in education and consider the ethical requirements. In the second part, you’ll be allocated a supervisor in a one-to-one relationship who’ll support you to carry out and report your research project.
The earlier modules of the course will help you decide your area(s) of research.
