About Education at The Open University

This flexible qualification offers four specialist routes - applied linguistics, inclusive practice, leadership and management, or learning and teaching - enabling you to engage with issues, concepts, and debates in an area that supports your professional development. Your investigative study will draw on your own and others' experience and on appropriate literature, and will develop your understanding of the role and the limitations of research in informing educational practice. The qualification includes a literature review in a topic of your choice, and a substantial dissertation or research project situated in your own practice. You will need some experience of working with learners, either in teaching, the education advisory service, educational administration or an allied field, which may include informal learning settings.
