Course programme

The programme has three distinct phases, each of which is equivalent to 60 credits.

  • Phase 1 – Investigating Practice focuses on the evaluation of existing practice. The aim is to engage you in reflective practice, laying the foundations for future progression and providing an introduction to critical reflection and evaluation, enhancing your understanding of practitioner enquiry;
  • Phase 2 – Developing Practice provides an opportunity to engage in modules with a specialised focus. This might include a focus on teaching and learning, subject specialist knowledge development, coaching and mentoring, educational leadership, issues within a particular sector (such as early years, primary, post-compulsory or lifelong learning) and special educational needs;
  • Phase 3 – Embedding Improved Practice will enable you to develop a thorough knowledge and critical understanding of enquiry-based research. It will involve researching, planning and completing an enquiry that impacts on learners, directly or indirectly, in their educational setting and area of work.
How will I study?

For those joining the MA on a full-time basis, the programme is delivered through daytime sessions comprising lectures, group tutorials, workshops and personal tutorials. Programme delivery will be supplemented and supported by extensive use of the blended virtual learning environment. As a full-time participant, you will be given the opportunity to observe and immerse yourself in the day-to-day practice of British educational settings, which will provide a focus for the practice-based research tasks subsequently undertaken. The experience in an educational setting is not a placement and you will be guided in how to secure such an experience.

The part-time programme is delivered predominantly online with an optional induction.
