Educational Leadership and Management fully online MEd

This course is for those who are already Leaders and Managers in an educational context or for those who aspire to take on a leadership role. The course lasts 18 months and covers a wide range of leadership topics, delivered through study days, online lectures, extensive course materials and independent study. Students will engage with the latest research on Educational Leadership and Management and will be able to connect to like-minded peers in the UK and across the world via online delivery.

The course is distance-learning with the expectation that you will attend online, four pairs of study days over the course of the 18 months and these will be followed by an online discussion as well as an essay. These take place on Thursdays and Fridays and so you will need to be able to have time away from work to attend these online.

Every master's student is allocated a supervisor. You will regularly communicate for example, via Teams, Zoom, email or another online meeting platform with your supervisor at times that are suitable for you both, to support each module. You will also have access to regular online study sessions throughout the course. There is an induction session early on to introduce you to how the course will run, then there are twilight sessions UK time, during the year to support you with each module and with additional sessions to aid with the completion of the dissertation. The majority of these are optional in terms of attendance as we know that many people struggle to be available at certain times. However, all these sessions are recorded and can be watched after the live event. This means that as you progress through the course you end up having access to a library of videos that you can re-visit, to support you to a successful outcome. It is important to understand that you, as a master's student, will be expected to work independently and to use the guidance provided to complete the required modules.
