About

The Educational Leadership programme from Manchester Metropolitan University is a flexible course for anyone interested in critically exploring educational leadership. We offer a full-time route and a part-time route so you can study at a pace that suits you.

Overview

Whether you are a current or aspiring leader in education or related field, our course appeals to a variety of backgrounds and professions. You’ll be joining a diverse and thriving community of postgraduate students from the UK and across the world.

Critically analyse the key approaches and debates in the field of educational leadership from UK and global perspectives and develop your understanding of different leadership models. 

You will evaluate and learn to think with a range of theoretical frameworks to deepen your critical analysis of leadership. You’ll also use theory to examine and challenge your own beliefs and assumptions. This enables you to reframe how educational leadership is practiced and contribute to new and innovative methods for the future. 

The Educational Leadership programme from Manchester Metropolitan University aim to empower you to approach your own research with confidence. You’ll extend your understanding of research techniques to prepare you for completing your own dissertation. You’ll be supported by active researchers in our internationally renowned Educational and Social Research institute (ESRI). 

Career

You’ll gain skills to help you pursue a leadership or management position in education and develop a clear understanding of the role a leader plays in education to define your vision as a leader.

By choosing your own topics and option units, you can focus on your areas of interest – your priorities, targets and aspirations.

Our graduates have used our courses to help further careers, either in their current sector, or to make an informed move into a different role or field of education. If you’re considering pursuing a research degree in education, this masters course is a good foundation towards that ambition.
