Our MSc Education with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) is a follow-on qualification from our PGCE Physical Education programme. Following the successful completion of a research methods course and a school-based research project, you will be qualified to master's level which, in addition to your PGCE, will position you strongly in the broad field of physical education teaching.

The structure of the MSc programme has been uniquely designed to allow you to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and complete your master's degree by the end of your second year of teaching, at the same time as keeping your first year of teaching (Newly Qualified Teacher year) free from any academic commitments.

At the end of your PGCE year, if you are eligible and you decide to continue with your master's study, you can enrol onto our Research into Teaching and Learning module. This module is worth 30 credits and is completed prior to you starting your Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) year.

Following your NQT year, you will enrol onto the final module – the Teaching Physical Education Research Project. This is a distance learning module and involves one-to-one supervision with internationally renowned researchers. Importantly, this project module offers you the opportunity to continue your professional development by conducting research on a pedagogical innovation and development in the context of teaching physical education relevant to your work context. Upon successful completion of this second module, you will be awarded an MSc Education with QTS Physical Education.
