About

The online MA Education degree course at University of Derby is not a teaching qualification but previous students have benefited from this postgraduate degree, helping them to gain more senior roles, enriching their teaching, challenging their preconceptions and boosting their confidence.

Overview

This online MA Education degree course at University of Derby now offers two exit routes. If you are unable to commit to a full Masters but want to update your skills to complement your career aspirations, you can complete our 60 credit Postgraduate Certificate within a year in your preferred choice of specialist pathway. Once you've successfully completed the Postgraduate Certificate, you may wish to continue to the full Masters. 

Students frequently tell us that they most enjoy hearing the diverse mix of experiences, ideas and opinions brought by others taking the course, especially when that challenges their own thinking. Online discussion forums make this possible, and with such a wide variety of people on the course, from the UK and overseas, that’s not surprising. Our tutors have many years’ experience in the education sector themselves, so they understand your profession and are sympathetic to the pressures of balancing study with a busy teaching job.

Career

This course can open doors for you in your career. It might make your CV stand out enough to get you an interview for that more senior role you’ve been looking for, or just give you the confidence to apply for positions you normally wouldn’t have considered.

Previous students have also said that they have performed better at work as a result of this course – bringing greater recognition and respect from peers. 

To give you an idea of the range of careers this MA relates to, some of our graduates have gone on to become advanced skills teachers, nursery managers, assistant head teachers, disability coordinators within universities and national trainers for charitable organisations.
