Master of Education (MEd) Education Studies Stranmillis University College



Course info


This MEd Specialist option draws on a wide range of academic disciplines such as philosophy, psychology and sociology to further our understanding of learning and educational contexts. Drawing on up-to-date research, the programme focuses on how we learn, from early childhood through compulsory schooling and into adulthood, and offers a rigorous analysis of broader educational systems such as curricula, policies and schools in their societal context.

Students are encouraged to consider fundamental questions about the nature and aims of education; to engage with the problematic nature of educational theory, policy and practice; and to develop and express their own reasoned viewpoint on a wide range of issues.

The course will enable you to:

develop a critical understanding of how education systems can be developed to ensure that all learners achieve to their full potential
encourage reflection on existing policy and practice
question concepts and theories and interrogate assumptions underpinning theory and research
critically consider how recent international research relates to students’ own educational contexts.


Depending on the modules selected, teaching and learning is delivered through a blended approach of lectures, virtual learning activities and reflective, self-directed study. For your dissertation, you will be allocated a Personal Tutor who will guide and support you throughout your dissertation


The majority of module sessions are in the evenings, although attendance at weekend workshops may occasionally be required. In some modules, there is an online taught element.


You will be taught, assessed and supported by an exceptional team of internationally recognised, research-informed and experienced practitioners.


There are no written examinations. Modules are assessed by coursework.


A MEd is awarded to students who have completed 180 CAT points at M-level. Students who have accumulated 60 points may graduate with a Postgraduate Certificate and those who have accumulated 120 points may graduate with a Postgraduate Diploma.
