This is a cross-disciplinary research degree with equivalent learning outcomes to a PhD, including its level of award and title. It aims to extend and deepen your knowledge of contemporary educational issues and will help to refine your research skills by providing you with the opportunity to undertake a research project within your chosen professional field.

You will enhance your understanding of research and its application, engaging in critical discussions and reflections that involve in-depth consideration of the relationships between theory and practice. The academic portion of this programme consists of three taught units. The thesis component involves one substantive research study of 60,000 words.

Support will be provided in your first year of taught study through evening and Saturday face-to-face sessions on campus, combined with regular meetings with your supervisor. You will continue to be supported throughout the remainder of your research programme by your supervisory teams and as you engage in the University's research culture and network with like-minded peers.

This course provides you with the opportunity to progress your professional learning and development through an extended period of research-based study with the intention of making original contributions to knowledge.
