Course Summary

This distance learning course builds on your PGDE learning and enhances your skills in order to conduct a masters-level dissertation study in your own professional context.

Course description

This is a distance learning course for those who hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE) with 120 valid credits. The programme will build on your PGDE learning, helping you to gain all the skills necessary to conduct a masters-level dissertation study in your own professional context.

We teach this course through a series of Saturday study schools. You’ll also have one-to-one support for your dissertation from a personal tutor.

During the study schools you’ll explore practitioner research methodologies, develop your project, and share and debate ideas in a supportive environment.

The study schools are complemented by online materials on research methods and methodologies. You can access expertise and support via email, Skype, phone calls or visits.

Modules

The MA Applied Professional Studies in Education is assessed by a 15-20,000-word dissertation, submitted around the end of August. As newly qualified teachers, this allows you time to carefully consider your topic of interest, research approach and to arrange fieldwork activities around your professional roles, all carefully managed alongside your teaching workloads. You will be allocated a dissertation supervisor who will support you throughout the year. This includes guidance on the development of your research project, discussing and approving your proposed fieldwork activities, and providing feedback on draft work prior to the final submission of your dissertation.
