If you are a professional with a particular area of research interest in the field of education, the MA (Ed) by Dissertation through Flexible Study may offer you an ideal route towards a Master’s degree.
This innovative programme does not adopt a traditional classroom model of delivery, but enables you to develop specialist expertise through a combination of independent study and small-scale research, usually in your own work context, with tutor support and full access to University facilities.
Specialist study is available across a wide range of areas, and we encourage you to contact us to discuss whether we could support you with your particular area of interest. For example, in recent years some generic areas have included:
investigating aspects of pedagogy
addressing curriculum-related issues in schools and colleges
enhancing professional development
investigating issues of inclusion and widening participation
developing technology-based approaches to learning.
The programme is also ideal for groups working more collaboratively, and can be tailored to address organisational needs, for example, groups of colleagues working together within a single school/organisation or across a number of schools/organisations. Subject to demand, we can offer a bespoke pathway which combines a small taught component with group seminars and individual tutorials, emphasising collaboration and the role of constructive dialogue between peers as co-investigators. Group members undertake distinct but related projects, and workplace tutorials can be arranged.
