Course Summary


The MA Education Studies offers learning and career development opportunities for educators and leaders across educational sectors. Masters level study is viewed by many as being essential for career progression and supports professional development in education and related fields. This course provides the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of the current landscape in education and engage with wider theories and issues. Students will develop critical thinking and hone higher level skills.

The MA course has been designed to enable professionals to study alongside their busy work and home lives and provides opportunities for students to focus on areas of particular interest and relevance to their own experience, context and practice.

The course offers a distinct progression route for students with level 7 courses, for example Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and Postgraduate Certificate Academic Practice (PGCAP). These students can choose to undertake a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) or the full MA in Education studies. The course also provides a progression route for students without existing level 7 qualifications (e,g teachers and lecturers with PGCE qualifications at level 6, early years professionals and HE support staff). These students can choose to undertake a Postgraduate Certificate (PgC), a Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) or the full MA in Education studies.


The dissertation provides an opportunity to explore an area of specific interest drawing on the knowledge gained from modules undertaken during the course and your own practice.
