About

The Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) encourages and enables students to think deeply and critically about education as a field of study. This stimulating programme supports students to begin to articulate, explain and justify their own position within this complex and diverse field.

Overview

This Education programme offered at the University College London (UCL) supports beginning educational researchers and practitioners to make a contribution to the field of education studies based on a grounded understanding of their own position.  

To do this it introduces such themes as curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, relationships between education and society, and the importance of education research, whilst encouraging students to relate these to their own contexts. 

Teaching and learning

Modules are available as distance learning, face-to-face or mixed-mode (please note that some modules are not available in all modes). The programme is also offered flexibly, allowing students to take one or two modules a year and spread their studies out as they see fit.

Careers

Graduates from the MA Education have gone on to be successful in a wide variety of contexts related to education. Those already teaching have often been promoted, sometimes to senior leadership positions.  

Others have found new opportunities in a different educational phase (from early years through to higher education) or in education policy or research.  

Some graduates go on to work internationally on education and development projects, whilst others have developed plans to open their own schools.  A good number of graduates undertake further research on PhD programmes.
