Master of Education


The Masters degree in Education is a respected postgraduate qualification, enabling you to specialize academically in education, or further your career in education or another career of your choice.

This degree is a flexible course with a choice of modules that allows you to tailor the qualification according to your interests. You can choose to specialize in linguistics, inclusive practice, or leadership and management, all of which draw on the research strengths of the Faculty of Education and Language Studies.

Throughout this degree you’ll engage with debates and issues in the area of education relevant to your area of interest. Course work will encourage you to consolidate your understanding of educational issues with relevant professional and academic research.
