Master in Education

 

Master in Education with the University of Brighton

Background Information 

Our partnership post-graduate programme provides for graduate and experienced professionals in education to achieve a two-year part-time Masters degree in Education at the MIE. The postgraduate programme seeks to deliver development opportunities for professional practitioners who wish to extend, enhance and better understand their current practice and, in so doing, develop a framework for creating and implementing change in their future practice.

 

The Award 

This collaborative programme delivers the University of Brighton’s MA Education. It is a modular programme consisting of 180 credit points accumulated over two and a half years and starts each year in April. Intensive teaching sessions are held at the MIE during school vacations in April, July and December each year.

 There are six modules of 20 credits and the research project which is 60 credits. Each module carries its own assessment designed to develop professional and academic attributes, understanding and skills. There are no examinations.

Participants are introduced to Masters level study in Education with a module focusing on appropriate learning and teaching strategies. This module is designed to develop participants’ capabilities, understanding and practice at this university level embedded within professional development in education.

This is followed by four modules that develop understanding and skills in pedagogy, Leadership and Management and Research in Context and Literature Review. Each of these is appropriately assessed to enable participants to achieve the learning outcomes. The final module of this stage focuses on research and teacher research in education and produces the research plan for the project in the second year of study.

The research project, from the design stage to the writingstage is supported with further research methods taught sessions and also expert tutoring from the MIE and Brighton University (on-line).

 

PGCE Progression to MA

 

MIE students who have completed their PGCE as from 2013-2014 onwards, can gain advanced standing on the MA Education Programme up to a maximum of 80 CATS points,subject to certain conditions. Students who qualify for this advanced standing can thus directly join stage 2 of the MA programme.

Learning and Teaching 

As these modules imply, participants’ normal professional work contributes significantly to study and achievement. Participants are normally required to attend all programmed sessions and to commit a matched amount of time to independent study. This may involve critical study group meetings, reading, writing reflective logs on professional practice, other workplace-based

activities and, increasingly, independent and tutored online learning using the University of Brighton’s internet-based facilities.

 

The University of Brighton and MIE are committed to innovation in teaching and learning strategies. We make use of a wide range of approaches from formal lectures through seminars, tutorials, simulation and role play, and other group approaches to directed and autonomous private study. Outside the intensive teaching weeks participants work in critical study groups supported by appropriate distance learning materials. Increasingly, these include online learning.

 

All assessed work must be presented in high quality written English. All classes are taught in English. All assessment procedures and quality assurances are conducted within the Universityof Brighton Examinations Regulations and Quality Assurance practices.

 

Minimum Admission Requirements:

·       A relevant degree or equivalent  

·       Evidence of relevant experiencein an education field 

 

The Cost 

The fee for the MA Education starting April is approx £UK2255 per year. Invoices are issued each year and payment may be made in installments by arrangement with the Finance Office, UOB.
