Our MA in Education is a one-year, part-time course for teachers and school leaders to develop expertise in the field of education through critical evaluation of research and scholarship. The course can be taken either completely online or with the inclusion of days of training at the University.

This is one of the most popular Masters courses of its type in the UK and the largest Masters course in the university. We take students from all round the world. They appreciate the opportunity to follow their own interests while being given clear guidance about the requirements of a serious level 7 academic qualification.

The course consists of a literature review, which informs a research project to explore an educational issue with a view to improving the candidate’s own professional practice or that of others. The study culminates in a dissertation involving a candidate’s own project in their school or research in a wider field of education.

What is the point of doing an MA when I have a PGCE or am an experienced teacher?

  1. Professionals do not stop learning at any stage in their working lives.  Doctors and lawyers, for example, have to have regular refresher courses.  In the same way, teachers need a framework like an MA within which to learn about recent research in education and be prompted to consider whether they could be even better at what they do.
  2. Not only will you learn about recent research in education, but you will also learn how to do research yourself.
  3. Having taken the trouble to gain this qualification will show your employer and future employers that you are a serious, professional employee.
  4. You will find the course intellectually stimulating.

Course content

  • Conducting a literature review
  • Academic writing of a literature review and critical evaluation
  • Research methods
  • Project/dissertation planning and design
  • Ethics in educational research

You will submit three essays and a dissertation under the guidance of the university tutor.

Entry requirements

Candidates with a degree but no level 7 PGCE will be asked to produce a portfolio of evidence of their work of up to 7000 words (further advice will be given).
