The Education programme from Swansea University is designed to support the national mission for education in Wales. The programme is flexible to allow for professionals at different stages of their career to further develop their professional competence and interests in education.

You will learn how to undertake and use educational research, to reflect on your own practice, using the latest educational trends and developments, to inform and enhance the way you work.

You will study a set number of core and optional 20-credit modules, before undertaking a 60-credit dissertation project of your choosing in the second part of the course.

Varied modules include Research Methods in Education, Additional Learning Needs, Digital Education and Practice, Leading and Managing in Education, Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment and Education and Inequality.


If you working as a teacher, lecturer, educational leader, manager, or aspiring to a career in education, the MA will give you an insight into the latest trends and leading research, and how those impact on policy and practice.

The educational landscape in Wales is evolving rapidly and the policy changes taking place will impact significantly on the knowledge and skills required of the teaching workforce. The classroom environment, whether in Wales or elsewhere in the world, is complex and constantly evolving, and teaching therefore requires mastery of a complex set of skills to guide, motivate and facilitate learning.
