Bath Spa University
An opportunity to study educational issues in depth. The programme covers policy, practice and education theory within an international context. It is therefore much more than the study of teaching for the programme is designed to get students questioning the assumptions that lie beneath educational policy and practice.
Applicants require an Honours degree from a recognised higher education institution in the UK, although applicants are often accepted with appropriate experience that is considered sufficient and comparable, or an equivalent degree from overseas. The content and subject matter of a student�s 1st degree is open. In some circumstances, professional work in education (eg PGCE) or a related field can be assessed as appropriate credit for �prior learning� (APL) and a reduction in the number of credits required to pass the programme can be negotiated. For overseas applicants who are non-native speakers of English, a minimum language level of IELTS 6.5, or equivalent, is required.
There are 4 compulsory modules and a dissertation: research and the professional (part 1); research and the professional (part 2: research project preperation); education: economics, politics and society; learning and knowledge technology; dissertation. Students also take 2 additional optional modules that allow for further in- depth study: international education and globalisation; language, ideology and education; global citizenship; education policy; education in the social and cultural context of the UK; cultural and historical roots of mathematics.
There are no written exams and each module is assessed by coursework. This typically involves an essay and occasionally assessment is by verbal presentation. The dissertation focuses on an area mutually agreed with a specialist tutor who also offers guidance and support in the writing of the dissertation. To achieve the award students need 180 credits in total.
