This course provides an opportunity to study broad educational and pedagogical issues, while an individually supervised dissertation gives you the opportunity to research a specific issue in depth. It provides students with a clear understanding of the nature and significance of educational issues, both generic and subject specific, and will examine the ways in which research in education might illuminate these issues.
Applicants for the programmes must normally be graduates of this or another University or of the C.N.A.A., with an upper 2nd class honours or above (successful completion of a masters level PGCE will classify as 'above'), or have other specially approved qualifications which satisfy the Admissions Sub-Committee that they are suitably qualified to undertake the programme.
