The MA Education degree at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is a part-time programme of study for teachers and other educational professionals who wish to extend their academic and professional development.


Tis Education programme at The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is conceptualised and delivered in ways that will enhance the intellectual development of participants as individuals (personal development), enable participants to reflect on and act on issues and priorities which are relevant to them in their educational establishments (staff development) and provide them with insight into developments within education taking place outside their own schools and institutions which may have an impact directly or indirectly on themselves as practitioners (professional development).

During Part One of the programme, students attend modules led by a tutor. In addition, students will undertake directed and independent study and will work towards the submission of an assignment for each module.

During Part Two of the programme students will be allocated a one-to-one supervisor to support them through their dissertation and will also attend dissertation support sessions.

  • We believe that practice is improved through reflection-on-action and that practitioner research must play a fundamental part of school improvement and professional development.
