Postgraduate study in Secondary Teaching

What can you study in Secondary Teaching?

We offer a range of different options for study in Secondary Teaching at postgraduate level. All of them provide excellent teaching and access to the latest research and techniques in a faculty whose education programmes are rated in the top 2% internationally.

The one-year Graduate Diploma prepares graduates with the skills and knowledge needed to begin working as a secondary teacher. It emphasises practical experience in school to apply theoretical learning and first-hand understanding of teaching and learning contexts.

The Master of Education Practice is aimed at teachers with two years’ experience or more who wish to fast-track their learning, learn about the latest research and investigate their teaching practice and context. It is taught part-time outside of school hours through an effective blend of online and face-to-face delivery.

The Master of Education focuses on teaching your research methods and you conducting independent supervised research into an area of your interest.
