This flexible degree focuses on four specialisations and electives to meet your professional learning needs.  

We offer four areas of specialisation:

  • Educational Leadership and Innovation - study leadership and management theory in depth and consider how it can be applied to lead educational change
  • Wellbeing - examine evidence-based approaches to wellbeing support—a key knowledge area for all educators
  • English Language Teaching (ELT/TESOL) - learn the latest strategies for effective English Language Teaching
  • Research - strengthen your educational research skills and understandings, with opportunities to go on to a PhD.
Learn flexibly and at your own pace with classes offered in a range of convenient ways, including face-to-face and via online learning, workshops and intensives. The Master of Education is offered in a blended mode with a combination of online and face-to-face courses.

You’ll graduate ready to pursue a rewarding education career. You could revolutionise the field with a new approach to assessment or integrated curriculums. You might want to teach English to adults or work in higher education. Perhaps you’ll be an education consultant or transition into research and publish your own book.
