Master of Education

The Master of Education (Part Time) MH57G is not an initial teacher education programme.  It does not confer qualified teaching status. 

Modules are offered on a two year rotation cycle. Not all modules are offered every year. 

This taught Master of Education programme is designed for those interested in the field of educational studies. Its flexible modular design offers the opportunity of completing a Master of Education Degree full-time, in one year, or part-time, over two or more years. It is a 90 credit degree with each module counting for 10 credits. In their final year students choose to complete either a thesis (thirty credits) or a capstone project (twenty credits).

Modules are taught on weekday evenings. Some are offered as Easter and Summer School choices.

Students can choose a specialism option or a general option. The specialisms on offer are Educational Leadership, Teacher Education, Early Childhood Teaching and Learning, and Social Justice Education.

Graduates of the Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Leadership and some other postgraduate courses are eligible for module exemptions.

It is possible to study modules of particular interest without completing a Master of Education degree or to exit with a Postgraduate Diploma in Educational Studies after completing 60 credits.
