Taught Courses

We offer two main routes through to a masters degree in Education. Both routes provide ample opportunity for students to develop important skills and enjoy the challenge of marrying issues of research, practice and policy in the complex field of Education.

1. MSc Education

This programme provides a modular route to the award of MSc Education, with a wide range of taught modules available for you to choose from.

An opportunity to develop important skills
A Masters degree in Education

Through this route you can gain a general MSc Education degree or choose one of the pathways within it allowing you the opportunity to focus in one of our areas of specialism. The two pathways we offer are: MSc Education Management and Leadership, and MSc Education Practice and Innovation.

Our pathway and optional modules align strongly with the research interests of our teaching staff and so tutors inject insights from their current and previous research into the learning that you will experience. The MSc is completed by working toward a substantial dissertation for which you will have the opportunity to plan, conduct and report your own primary research.

Programme tutor: Dr Ran Peleg

2. MSc Education (Online)

This is an online part time degree for education professionals seeking an innovative and flexible opportunity to study. It is available to both UK and International students.

Programme tutor: Dr Vasilis Strogilos
