Education is much more than the study of teaching. Our programme is designed to get you questioning the assumptions that lie beneath educational policy and practice. The MA in Education Studies offers a mixture of theory and reflection on practice within an international context.
This course is for prospective teachers, as well as non-teachers looking for a new career path. If your ambition is to teach in a school, then the MA Education Studies is ideally suited (although it is not itself a UK teaching qualification). Most of our students, however, have no intention of teaching. They are attracted by the academic nature of this award, by its habit of enabling new thinking about things that seemed like common sense, and by the prospect of improving academic skills and qualities and applying them in educationally related fields.
