This course is suitable for you if you have a background in education or are seeking to understand education within its broad contexts. It encourages you to link theoretical and practical understanding of issues in education, while developing generic knowledge, skills and understanding of the questions involved in conceptualising and designing educational research.
Core modules in Foundation Research Methods and Teaching, Learning and Assessment or Education, Policy and Society lay the foundations for developing your research skills and understanding of education contexts. You may then select two further optional modules from the CES portfolio, to suit your own interests. You’ll also complete a dissertation under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
Past students have developed as education professionals and pursued work in various educational establishments and community ventures, both in the UK and abroad.
