Our education master's degrees give you the opportunity to design a tailored programme of study that suits your cultural and learning needs. You will be able to specialise and receive an award in a particular disciplinary area.

This pathway is designed for UK and international mathematics teachers and other professionals working in mathematics education, from primary schools to post-16 education. You will be supported in integrating the theory and practice of teaching and learning mathematics by:

- being an active researcher of your own and others' practice, including reworking your own practice;

- carrying out small-scale research projects, one of which can act as a pilot project for the major work of your dissertation;

- engaging with research literature, especially the current journals and activity of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education;

- engaging with new developments in teaching and learning mathematics;

- updating your mathematics knowledge;

- writing assignments that show the emergence of a theoretical frame, presenting a literature search and developing ideas from a seminar;

- becoming confident with presentation, argumentation, research and ICT skills.

- The course has been recognised as excellent by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics.
