Scholarship information

Why choose our MSc Education programme?

The MSc Education provides opportunities for those students who wish to undertake, at postgraduate level, the study of education as an ethical, intellectual and cultural process as well as those who may be concerned to reflect in a critical and contextualised (but not necessarily applied) way on their own professional development.

The programme examines education through:

  • social and philosophical reflection and debate
  • in-depth policy analysis
  • systematic application of research evidence to the process of learning and teaching
  • the development of international and comparative perspectives on education and training
  • a critical analysis of dominant discourses within the academic and policy communities
