Dissertation through Flexible Study
The programme offers you the opportunity to study Education and associated studies in depth, equipping you with the academic knowledge and understanding to pursue advanced career goals and/or further advanced study
It is not a traditional taught course and has been specifically designed for those who wish to obtain an advanced, post graduate qualification, but for whom traditional patterns of attendance are not feasible, sought or required.
Structure & Assessment:
Not all learning experiences for students will be the same, but each student will have equivalent contact with a specialist supervisor who will assist them on a one-to-one basis.
Tutorials will, where possible, be reasonably tailored to your own requirements, and can be arranged outside normal University hours - including evenings, weekends and vacation periods. As a guide, part-time students will probably require around four to six tutorials per year. Contact supervision will also be maintained throughout by email, mail and telephone.
The programme will be assessed and examined by assignment and dissertation (16,000 words).

• Curriculum Studies
