Postgraduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK II.i Honours Degree.

If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

The route is aimed at a wide audience including practitioners studying part-time as well as full-time students. It is of relevance and interest to teachers (ie middle and senior leaders, heads/ principals, specialist and system leaders, governors and administrators), as well as to graduate students interested in the area of leadership and school improvement. We draw on participants' experiences, and students pursue their particular interest by undertaking an individual empirical research project.

Candidates applying for the route would normally be expected to have been a teaching or educational role for at least three years, and to have experience of exercising leadership beyond the classroom – often but not exclusively through formal positions of responsibility.
