Course Summary

This course offers teachers and educational professionals opportunities to learn across a range of areas within the broad field of education. Education professionals in the twenty-first century are expected to have strong knowledge and skills in core areas as well as an ability to move flexibly in and out of a variety of specialist areas. This programme offers students an opportunity to familiarise themselves with current research on learning and teaching, assessment and curriculum design. In addition, students are encouraged to consider and reflect on the practical implications of theoretical perspectives and research findings. The MEd in Educational Studies is open to teachers in primary-, secondary- and tertiary-level institutions as well as to professionals in other fields of education.

Graduates from this degree have found the skills and knowledge learned to be beneficial in their workplace by improving their professional practice. In the case of teachers this has meant the development of research-informed practice and the ability to lead professional development within their schools. Furthermore, a higher degree can enhance employment prospects for help secure future promotion. Having deepened their knowledge in a specific area, other students have chosen to continue academic study to doctoral level. Queen's postgraduates reap exceptional benefits. Unique initiatives, such as Degree Plus and Researcher Plus bolster our commitment to employability, while innovative leadership and executive programmes alongside sterling integration with business experts helps our students gain key leadership positions both nationally and internationally.
