If you are a graduate working in education and looking for academic and professional development and experience in research education, this could be the course for you. It is flexible and is designed to be suitable for busy professionals. You can aim for the full MA degree (180 credits) from the start or begin with the smaller Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) and stop there or build credits on afterwards towards the MA. You may already have some credits (e.g. from a PGCE or a CPD course) which you may be able to use towards the MA.
The course brings together those who have a common passion for education. If you have a keen interest in your own learning and the learning of others, a curiosity about the teaching process itself and a determination to understand and improve your own working context, then this course will excite and challenge in equal measure.
The modules are designed to allow you to articulate your personal learning needs and goals, as well as to help you to apply key research issues from reading and reflection on your own situation. Throughout your studies you will be questioning evidence and assumptions, exploring the implications of alternatives and sharing your results in order to influence professional practice. You will be developing as a practitioner researcher and making a difference in your workplace.
