About

The MA Higher Education at the University of Surrey has been built with practising university teachers in mind. It encourages you to construct your own developmental pathway through a choice of optional modules, allowing you to graduate as a more confident university teacher with the skills and knowledge to shape professional practice.

Overview

What you will study

The MA Higher Education at the University of Surrey offers you the flexibility to create a course that suits your professional development needs in the field of university teaching, and is offered on a part-time basis over three to five years.

The course allows you to construct your own developmental pathway through a choice of optional modules. You’ll do this by engaging with the connections between concepts, theory and practice, teaching and research, disciplinary methods, and teachers and students.
