Education (Mathematics Education) is no longer accepting new applications.

At the beginning of the MEd course, I had a fair bit of experience in reading and making use of research but no formal training. The MEd course was invaluable in helping me to develop a far greater insight into academic materials and read them through a critical lens while also broadening the scope of my knowledge of key issues and seminal research. Alongside this, the chance to study besides peers at all stages of their education careers supported by warm and knowledgeable tutors was as delightful as it was fascinating.

Darren Macey (June 2020)

Studying for the MEd gave me a much deeper appreciation for approaching key maths education debates thoughtfully and critically, stimulated by the diverse group of fellow students of the course of whom so many were practising teachers. This, and some very well-placed guidance from the lecturers, made it impossible to get too carried away with principles and theories without also being grounded in the thoroughly complex and beautifully human environment of the classroom.

Lucy Rycroft-Smith (June 2020)

The part-time MEd course allowed me to break from and reflect on the routine of teaching. It provided me with an incentive to read about current issues in education and with an intellectually stimulating environment to discuss them. The course was organised flawlessly, with pre-established weekly readings and deadlines. Feedback provided on the essays and the thesis was extremely detailed and accurate and allowed me to improve my academic writing and research skills, in particular with respect to qualitative research methods. Overall, I feel better qualified to teach for it.
