International Summer School
The MA Education Studies Summer School will run in July/August 2013 at the Faculty of Education, Manchester Metropolitan University. The course requires completion of 4 taught units , plus a dissertation. Each taught unit in the summer school comprises 30 hours of classroom study over 5 days. See here for the schedule of units.
It is possible to complete all 4 taught units in one summer, or to take units over 2 or 3 years. After the taught units, you will work independently with distance learning support to complete assignments for each unit. You will then write a dissertation.
It is also possible to take any of the units as “stand-alone” units, without registering for the MA Education Studies degree. All units are open to teachers and education professionals from any part of the world, and to students currently enrolled in universities outside the UK. If you are currently enrolled in a Master’s Degree course outside the UK and wish to enrol in the summer school, you may be able to obtain credit for summer school units that is recognised towards your degree.
The Faculty of Education at MMU is one of the biggest providers of teacher education, continuing professional development and education-related courses in the UK.
The linked Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI) is recognised as one of the best educational research institutions in the country, rated 8th out of 81 educational research centres in the last Research Assessment Exercise.
With expert teaching, access to all the university’s facilities and the chance to study alongside colleagues from all over the world, the 2013 MA Education Studies Summer School could be the next step in your education career.
