MA Education Studies Information Evening

Wednesday, 14 June 2017,
16:00 to 19:00
Cult Cafe Bar, James Hehir Building, University of Suffolk, Ipswich.

We are running two information evenings for the MA Education Studies course at the Cult Café Bar, University of Suffolk on 14 June 2017 (4.00-7.00pm) and 5 July 2017 (4.00-7.00pm) with tea/coffee and cake.

Do put one of these dates in your diary now...

The MA Education Studies offers a choice of routes for practising professionals and managers in educational settings. Masters level study is viewed by many as being essential for career progression and supports continuing professional development in education and related fields. This course provides the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of the current landscape in education and engage with wider theories and issues. Students will develop critical thinking and hone higher level skills.

We would be delighted to welcome new students to the MA Education Studies modules starting at the University in September 2017 and January 2018.

This is a flexible and exciting course that features:

  • A strong and experienced course team, including tutors who have undertaken teaching and research at the University of Bern in Switzerland, Cambridge, Lancaster, and the Institute of Education;
  • Block teaching, particularly at weekends, rather than weekly sessions alongside an online element make it suitable for busy professionals;
  • RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) entry routes, and exit routes such as PG Certificate or PG Diploma as well as the full Masters Degree;
  • The new postgraduate loan scheme will mean most students could receive funding (;
  • Practice related study that allows students to integrate their assignments with their teaching.

It is perhaps the last point that is the most exciting aspect of the course. Where research is practice based, there are opportunities for the professional development of members of staff on this course to impact on the wider work of the school.

We are very happy to discuss flexible methods of delivering modules to groups of school staff should there be a lot of interest in this course from one location.
