Study type Taught

Summary

This is a flexible route to a Master’s qualification which is designed in a way which allows all professionals to construct a programme of study aligned to their own specific interests and responsibilities. For participants in schools the courses are aligned with the Standard for Career Long Professional Development (CLPD). Participants will be able to choose from a portfolio of (15 or 30 credit) Masters courses at SCQF Level 11 (PG5) to construct a pathway of study following their own interests and professional engagement. A comprehensive list of available courses for the next two years is published so that participants can plan an appropriate pathway.

Participants who successfully complete 60 credits may leave with a Certificate. Those who successfully complete 120 credits may leave with a Diploma and the MEd degree is awarded on the successful completion of 180 credits. The only compulsory element of the Programme is the Dissertation or Work-based project (60 credits) after completion of 120 credits.

Participants who have no previous engagement at Postgraduate level will be advised to undertake 15 credit courses in Critical Approaches to Academic Literature and Research Methods, to underpin their studies. Applicants with prior Masters level credits may be able to transfer these to this Programme. Decisions on the transfer of credits will be taken on a case-by-case basis by Programme Directors. Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) may also be offered in recognition of previous professional work.
