Course Summary

Course Summary

The MA in Educational Leadership and Change is intended for educational professionals who aspire to positions of leadership and change in education. The programme is designed to provide a broad-based view of educational leadership and change through the explicit and focused study of specific concepts and issues (e.g. change leadership, leadership of the curriculum, leadership of professional development, system or network leadership, etc.). It explores and critiques the theory, research and practice and encourage students to reflect on and challenge their own practice. The programme also actively caters to matters relating to a range of education sectors and provider types.

Course Learning and Teaching

In all of our postgraduate taught courses, we place an emphasis on empowering students to be autonomous, independent learners. The taught modules provide an introduction to module content which is then developed and extended through our use of online resources, key reading and independent study and research. We consider the development of independent learning and research skills to be one of the key elements of our postgraduate taught curriculum and one which helps our students cultivate initiative, originality and critical thinking.

Throughout the course, all students meet regularly with an Academic Advisor, who provides academic support and guidance. In addition, Programme Leads have regular office hours where they meet students to discuss any issues. Module staff are also happy to meet with you to discuss module specific issues as needed.

In term time, the department also has an extensive programme of departmental and research group seminars which postgraduate students are encouraged to attend. Before the academic year starts, we provide information on preparation for the course. On arrival, we have induction sessions and social events, headed by the Director of Postgraduate Studies and attended by both academic and administrative staff.
