Postgraduate courses
The MA Education is a flexible Level 7 course designed for those education professionals whose aim is to develop and improve their practice, enhance their professional profile and engage in rigorous research and high level inquiry into their working context.

The MA Education comprises 3 stages:

  • Postgraduate Certificate Education (60 credits)
  • Postgraduate Diploma Education (120 credits)
  • MA Education (180 credits)

The MA Education embraces a number of specialist pathways, which will allow you to deepen your knowledge and understanding in an area of particular relevance to your current or future professional context. These pathways are:

Did you know…?
You can apply for a one-off ‘taster’ module or register for an award (Postgraduate Certificate, a Postgraduate Diploma or the full Masters award). 

Most of our postgraduate education students study part-time, and modules are taught at weekends and during the evenings as a result. But, you can also study for your Masters full-time if you wish. 

You can start with a single module (20 credits) in your first year or choose to do more if you wish.
If you completed a PGCE, you may have already accrued 60 Masters level credits which will count towards your MA (but remember these credits are only valid for 6 years). 

You can start your qualification at the beginning of each term (September, January and April). You just need to complete a postgraduate application form and send it to the admissions team.

As University of Worcester Alumni, you may be entitled to 10% discount on fees!

On successful completion of the MA Education, you can progress to the University of Worcester’s Doctor of Education (EdD) programme.  Please contact the Graduate Research School for further details on 01905 855214 or email
