What will I learn?

The aim of the Master of Education (MEd) degree programme is to enhance the inquiry skills and executive capacity of experienced professional educators. The MEd programme is designed to provide flexibility to those who seek to broaden their understanding of education and to afford opportunities to those who wish to specialise in a defined area of study.

Enhanced flexibility is made possible by the provision of a General Stream, whilst the Programme with Specializations in defined areas of study offers courses that both enrich students’ existing knowledge base and allow the pursuit of specialist knowledge at the Master-degree level. MEd students tailor their course of study to their own interests, and are able to enroll in the variety of courses offered by our four academic departments.
