University of Chichester


This programme combines professional relevance with contemporary needs and interests of teachers and others working in education settings. The programme creates a supportive reflective space for professionals to evaluate how their study impacts on practice and student learning outcomes. It enables students to align their Master's study with existing school-based professional learning projects and/or school improvement plans. The programme provides the opportunity to follow their own particular area of interest throughout every module, for example a specific focus on maths subject knowledge; SEND; or management. Students will be encouraged and supported to ensure that the practitioner research they undertake during their study reflects their chosen focus, thus the programme is both specialised and personalised.

Entry requirements

Normally a 1st degree or equivalent and employment in the education sector; hence teachers and any other professionals working in education are welcome to apply; exemption from a part of the programme is often possible on the basis of recent qualifications obtained elsewhere; applications from non-standard entrants are also welcome.
