The two-year part-time mode of the programme is designed to meet the needs of busy professionals. Learning experiences take the form of intensive weekend and day events, involving lectures, seminars, workshops and tutorials, which are supported by online resources for preparatory tasks and consolidating activities. There is one full weekend for each of the four first modules and a number of Saturdays for the fifth module (the Research Dissertation). With the exception of the current year the full weekends take place across the first year while the Dissertation Saturdays across the second year.
The entire programme is designed to develop a community of learners so that peer-enriched, participative experiences can meet individual needs and facilitate a critically supportive cohort identity.
Keynote events will be an integrated feature of the weekend conferences and will be calendared in the School of Education diary.
The range of events and lectures in the School of Education enhances your studies and adds an extra perspective to your learning.
