For admission to the programme we would normally expect that you hold a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject area such as social sciences, humanities or education. While we normally only accept applicants who meet this criteria, if you have a high 2:2 or equivalent, are coming from a different academic background which is equivalent to degree level, or have relevant work experience, we would welcome your application.
We welcome applications from students who hold qualifications and degrees that are not in education. These may include degrees and qualifications undertaken in the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, arts or business studies. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and every application will be considered on a case-by-case basis. We would encourage applicants to use their personal statement to indicate their interests in education and any relevant work experience.

The MA in Technology, Creativity and Thinking develops a critical and reflective programme of work for individuals who would like to enhance their understanding and knowledge around approaches to learning and teaching which meet the needs of learners in the 21st century.
Our programme will support you to develop your knowledge and understanding in approaches related to technology, creativity and thinking in education, prepare you for further (professional) research and provide a firm foundation for developing your career in education and associated disciplines.
The two core modules of the programme will work together to enable students to apply new educational theories and insights from cutting edge research to practical learning situations around the topics such as educational technology, communication, creativity and thinking.
You must take 180 credits in total to qualify with an MA qualification. This will either consist of taught modules to the value of 120 credits and a dissertation worth 60 credits, or a combination of modules, dissertation and accredited prior learning or experience.
The modules we outline here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand.
