Why is now a good time to study for an MA Education degree?

When looking at the professional development opportunities, taking a master’s degree can have a great career impact, particularly, in the field of education. According to Eurus Recruitment Consultancy data, as many as 45% of teachers working in the bilingual / international school sector in China have already got a master’s degree.

The benefits of having a master’s degree expand beyond better classroom performance and academic knowledge. When surveying over 6,000 teachers, Eurus learned that having a master’s degree had a tangible impact on their salary by increasing the starting salary by as much as 1,000 CNY per month. Furthermore, educators with an overseas master’s degree, could hope to see the salary difference of 2,000 to 3,000 CNY per month. This difference becomes even bigger over the span of the teacher’s career as Eurus found that those with the master’s degrees were also more likely to have a higher position. 

With the borders disappearing in a virtual way, now is a great time to seize an opportunity to obtain an overseas qualification online. The University of Buckingham are offering a fully online MA Education degree to international students all around the world. This course is part-time and it takes one year to complete. The students are, however, expected to be working at a school whilst working toward this qualification as there is a practical research aspect to this degree.

This is one of the most popular Masters courses of its type in the UK and the largest Masters course at the university.

The programme aims to enable teachers to develop expertise in areas of education through critical evaluation of research and scholarship. Students will be able to critically analyse, engage in and reflect on educational issues and reflect on the implications for teaching and learning.

The course has four modules:

Module 1: Transformative Practice
Module 2: Research of Literature on Contemporary Issues in Education
Module 3: Principles of Educational Research
Module 4: Educational Research in Practice - Master’s Dissertation/ Research project

All students will be assigned an academic supervisor whom they can contact at any time during the course through either skype, phone or email contact for individual support and feedback.

How to Apply?

在寻求专业发展机会时,硕士学位可以对人们产生巨大的职业影响,尤其是在教育领域。根据欧洛斯国际教师咨询的数据,在中国双语/国际学校工作的教师中,多达45%已经获得了硕士学位。

拥有硕士学位的优势甚至远超于更好的课堂表现和学术知识。在调查6000多名教师时,欧洛斯发现硕士学位对他们的薪资有切实的影响,每月的起薪增加可高达1000元人民币。此外,拥有海外硕士学位的教育工作者,月薪有望达到2000至3000元的差异。欧洛斯发现那些拥有硕士学位的人更有可能获得更高的职位,因此这种差异伴随教师职业生涯会变得更加悬殊。

科技改变生活,随着在线教育的兴起,现在正是获取海外在线学位的好时机。白金汉大学正在向世界各地的国际学生提供完全在线的教育学硕士学位课程。本课程为非全日制,需要一年时间来攻读。由于该学位涉及应用型研究,因此希望学生在攻读该学位的同时正在学校工作。

这是全英同类课程中最受欢迎的硕士学位课程之一,也是白金汉大学中规模最大的硕士学位课程。该课程旨在通过对各项研究和学识的批判性评估,学生能够发展自身教育领域的专业知识和技能,批判性地分析,参与并反思教育议题和教与学的影响。

本课程包含四个模块:

模块1:转化型实践
模块2:当代教育问题文献研究
模块3:教育研究原理
模块4:教育研究实践-硕士毕业论文/研究项目

大学将为每位学生分配一位学术导师,学生可以在课程中任一时间通过Skype,电话或电子邮件联系他们,以寻求个人帮助和反馈。
