MA in Education

Our MA requires 180 credits at M-level. Most colleagues begin by
enrolling for a Postgraduate Certificate (60 credits) and can
then continue to the Postgraduate Diploma (120
credits) and finally the full MA (180 credits). This stepped
award structure provides great flexibility to plan a personal
pathway at an appropriate pace. A full-time student would
complete the MA in one year. A part-time work based student
would complete the MA in three or more years.
We have a wide range of 30-credit modules. These are
divided into Issues modules which are about particular areas
such as Learning and Teaching, and Impact modules which
report on the design and evaluation of changes in the
workplace. Just two core modules are required for the full
MA: Research Skills (30) and a Dissertation (60 credits). These
core modules are supported through seminars in Lincoln
three times a year (at mid terms).

Key features of the modules are:
• Articulating your personal learning needs and gains;
• Applying key research issues from reading and reflection to
your own situation;
• Negotiating action with and through others to enhance
standards;
• Questioning assumptions and exploring the implications of
alternatives;
• Developing research methods that elicit the views of
participants;
• Sharing your results to influence professional practice
further.


Entry Qualifications

To start our MA in Education you simply
need a first degree, or Certificate of Education, and a
real enthusiasm for learning about learning. Those for
whom English is not a first language and who do not teach
in English may also need to demonstrate their proficiency in
the English language. If you have already completed
some M-level study in education it may well be possible to
transfer these credits and gain accreditation for prior learning
(APL). It may also be possible to accredit work done for NPQH
and other examples of sustained work-based
development. The work claimed needs to be recent (within the
last four years), relevant (concerned with educational
issues) and documented. Each claim for APL is designed
separately and assessed carefully.
