The Education and Technology MA offered at the University College London (UCL) is based at UCL’s Knowledge Lab, a ground-breaking research centre that uses the latest evidence to design and implement innovative educational technology and pedagogies. 


Supported by scientists from a wide range of fields including education, sociology and computer science, you will develop the methodological skills to design, use and critically appraise ‘Ed Tech’ across a wide range of settings.

This multi-disciplinary Education and Technology MA at the University College London (UCL) brings together students from a wide range of fields to explore the ways in which educational theory can be applied to the design, development , implementation and research of learning technologies. 

As such educators learn to incorporate new technologies into their practice, developers bring an understanding of the learning process into the design and evaluation of technologies, and aspiring researchers build the skills for an academic career in this fast-moving field. 

Optional modules include topic areas as learning design, design thinking, artificial intelligence and learning analytics, among others.


Recent graduates of this programme have gone on to work as a head of ICT at an international school in Uganda, an education consultant for a multi-academy trust in the UK, an ICT trainer at a university in Nigeria, a lecturer and instructional designer at a university in Taiwan, and PhD students or research assistants at the UCL Institute of Education. 

Other graduates are working as educators, university learning technologists, government education researchers, designers or developers of educational technology, consultants, PR and marketing managers in the EdTech sector.
