Please contact us for further information.

Master's Degree Flexibility and Short Courses

Students can exit our Master's programmes at various points: those exiting after 60 credit points will receive an Advanced Certificate of Education.  Those exiting after 120 credit points will gain a Diploma in Advanced Studies in Education. Those who wish to complete with a Masters will complete a 15-20,000 word dissertation within the field of intercultural education. This is a supervised piece of work undertaken with a specialist in the field.

Whilst students enrolled on the MEd will be required to take four 30 point modules and a dissertation in order to complete the programme successfully, there are also opportunities for students to enrol on any of the modules in isolation as a standalone 'short course'.  Those students who meet entrance criteria for the MEd may thus enrol on a short course and accumulate credit points which may eventually lead to a Diploma or Masters.
