Interdisciplinary Studies in Education

The programme offers each student a choice of awards, allowing them to tailor the provision to their own research interests. After completion of the taught phase, students will then embark on the research phase, whereby they will study a research methods module and then complete a dissertation that synthesises the two blocks that they have studied.

Entry requirements

Normally a 1st Class or upper 2nd Class Honours degree. Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2.1 Honours degree (or equivalent) will be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made. Please note that a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) is required for students where they are required to visit settings other than their own. For students whose 1st language is not English there is a language requirement of IELTS 6.5 overall (reading 6, writing 6), TOEFL IBT 87, or other equivalent recognised English language qualification.
