The MSc Education is a part-time online masters aimed at international and UK-based teachers, trainers and education professionals who are looking to develop their postgraduate teaching and leadership qualifications within education organisations.

As part of your Quantum Scholars’ training package, you will be eligible for funding to study three of the six modules which together with a dissertation (30 CATS) make up the masters degree. You may be able to negotiate further funding to complete the programme with your employing school. The six modules are Making Sense of Education Research, Data collection and analysis, Teaching and Learning, Education Practice and Innovation, Leadership and Management and Education Effectiveness. There will be opportunities to work with local mentors, who will support you to contextualise your studies in mathematics or science education. A significant benefit of this approach is that you will be able to complete the MSc Education even if you change location.
