Our education master's degrees give you the opportunity to design a tailored programme of study that suits your cultural and learning needs. You will be able to specialise and receive awards in one of the following disciplinary areas:
- Teaching and Learning
- Leadership and Policy
- Policy and International Development
- Learning, Technology and Society
- Mathematics Education
- Neuroscience and Education
- Inclusive Education
These specialisms will be shown on your award, for example MSc Education (Leadership and Policy).
Alternatively, you can design your own pathway by opting not to specialise. Core units can be taken from across the different specialisms and from our bank of optional units to build a tailored programme of study, resulting in an award of MSc Education.
