Master of Education (Part Time)
This course, which is modular in structure, allows a high degree of flexibility. Students may follow a broad-based or specialised programme, leading by a combination of taught modules and a dissertation to a Master’s degree or by completion of the taught course alone to a Postgraduate Diploma of the University of Wales. Students study on a part-time basis and select from a range of modules designed to meet the needs of teachers with an interest in particular aspects of education, e.g. Special Needs, Dyslexia, School Management. Course tutors provide advice to students on the most appropriate choice and combination of modules, in the light of their professional experience and interests.
