MA Education for teacher at the University of Exeter

Did you know that, as well as PGCE, we also offer two part-time Masters courses designed specifically for teachers and others involved in education?


Many of our PGCE students go on to complete one of our two programmes - either MA Education or MA Language and Literacy in Education.


The MA Education builds on PGCE study by encouraging students to take a critical and questioning approach to big issues in education, introducing you to key research, policies and theories relating to these issues. Like the MA Language and Literacy in Education, the flexibility of the course is ideal for busy professionals wishing to extend their expertise. Further information about the course can be found here:


The MA Language and Literacy in Education explores the fundamental role of language and literacy in education: for learning in every subject, for democratic empowerment and for understanding self and world. A distinctive feature of the course is that the core modules also focus on personal development, through reading for pleasure and creative writing. The course involves critical enquiry intended to improve the outcomes of learners in reading and writing. Further information about the course can be found here:


For any questions about the courses, you can also contact Ruth, the Programme Lead:
