Postgraduate Taught Courses

Postgraduate Taught Courses

Our masters programmes are designed to support both individual and organisational development. While each programme has its own unique focus, all our education courses aim to deepen and refine the capacity of students to reflect critically upon their thinking and practice. 

Our online courses are offered with full University of Nottingham accreditation, and with one-to-one tutorial support via email, telephone or Skype.

The School of Education welcomes approaches from educational organisations who may wish to develop a bespoke programme for staff working towards the MA Education or the MA Educational Leadership and Management.
