The MA course in Education is designed for individuals from diverse educational backgrounds who are seeking to improve their educational skills and gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding. There is a clear need for educationalists that possess the appropriate skills, knowledge and ability to lead and motivate. The basis of the programme is therefore to develop educational leaders who have the necessary qualities, not only to lead their own organisations effectively, but who will contribute towards their community and society at large. The course aims to support participants in developing deeper understanding of their context, phase or subject. Students are supported in analysing and carrying out small-scale enquiries and connecting theory with practice.
