MSc Educational Research (on campus)

Teaching

You will be taught by senior staff who are all engaged in the practise of doing educational research.

Modules are taught through a blended system of learning including lectures and online learning groups.

Each module has 10 sessions to attend on campus.  You will also have access to powerpoint slides and audio recordings of the lectures.

In addition there are joint online learning groups (about 6-8 per group), which are mixed groups of campus and distance students, both home and international. These online activities draw on the lectures and involve collaborative peer learning supported by online tutorial support and feedback

You will have regular tutorials with your relevant module tutor and/or support from the supplementary programme – this is specifically designed for those needing academic support with the programme, for example, those for whom English is a second language.

If you are studying the MSc as part of the doctoral programme, you will also have tutorial support from your research mentors, supervisory coordinator and/or supervisors during your first year.

Assessment

Each of the taught modules is assessed by a portfolio of work including a 5,000 word written assignment and a range of tasks and activities equivalent to 2,500 words. Your dissertation is assessed via a 15,000 word submission.

If you are studying the MSc as year 1 of the PhD programme, you will need to reach an average grade overall 60% and 60% for the dissertation. The usual pass mark is 50%
