About This Course

If you already have a degree, or the equivalent professional experience, then studying at Masters level is the logical next step for anyone wanting to reap the many and varied benefits that a higher degree can bring, such as career enhancement and individual fulfilment.

The five-weekends-per-year format around which the Masters programme is organised suits both local people and those travelling from further afield, and offers a supportive, friendly atmosphere in which to learn.


Most students on this course are practising teachers, counsellors or social workers for whom a Master’s level qualification is an excellent way to develop their careers. With a free module choice, you can select the topic areas relevant to the work you are already doing, or to the work you aspire to do. This part-time Master’s degree in Education Studies will give you the confidence and competence to take on new responsibilities, or to embark on a complete change of direction in your career.


The dissertation module is an opportunity for you to delve into an area of educational research in considerable depth, allowing you to explore the literature in an area relevant to your own interest and experience, and to plan your own research in this area.
