The MA Education (Leadership and Management) program is for those professionals employed in educational or training organisations, contributing to the educational or training process. This is a flexible, integrated course for educational professionals to focus their enquiry, research and scholarship activity on developing more effective practice and raising achievement in their particular area. You will graduate as a specialist in Education.

All participants will be enrolled in the MA course but may choose to opt out at the Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma stage. Study is undertaken at Masters (Level 7) throughout.

The course is designed so that assignments can be built into the working practice, and to maximise impact on standards of teaching, leadership and management in education. All modules are based on gaining knowledge of best practice through research and literature, implementing this and researching the effect or impact. Participants are encouraged to focus assignments on identified institutional and personal needs and to use practitioner action enquiry and reflective practice as a learning model.


The MA Education (Leadership and Management) entails:-

  • Year 1 - Developing Effective Teaching and Learning
  • Year 2 - Developing Effective Leadership and Management in Education
  • Year 3 - Dissertation

Each module is studied for a year, and if successful, the participant will progress to the next module; with the last being a compulsory Dissertation.

As the programme is at postgraduate level, the expectation is that participants will work independently and take responsibility for their own progress on studies.


The course is designed to enable participants to enhance their career development. Many participants gain promotions.Others use evidence collected from the assignments as evidence for enhanced practice when applying for new posts. Participants report a close connection between what they have studied and how their practice has improved.

The MA Education is not a route into teaching and does not award Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in Mauritius or UK.
