The MA Education offers practising and aspiring educators opportunities to learn, apply and produce critical knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of Education, with the aim of enabling them to use this to inform and transform future educational practice, theory, policy and institutions. The programme is designed around three core modules and two optional modules. The core modules aim to support students in identifying their specific research questions through a critical review of the literature; develop the requisite knowledge, understanding and practical skills in appropriate research methods; and produce a compelling piece of advanced research. Optional modules allow you the opportunity to deepen your existing subject knowledge and broaden your appreciation of the study of education. The MA in Education is a programme of advanced study for anyone who wishes to deepen their knowledge of education in general, and for those who wish to make connections between educational practice, theory and research.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
You will be assessed through written assignments, portfolios and presentations. You will also receive regular feedback on your work from teaching staff and your Tutor as well as receiving grades to mark your progress through the curricula. In addition, you should expect to participate in formative peer review of each other’s ideas and work throughout the programme through active group discussion and a variety of presentation methods (e.g. annual student conference presentations, poster sessions, 'PechaKucha' sessions).
