Course Introduction

This MPhil programme provides a route for students to carry out their own research project: an investigation that will eventually contribute to the field of knowledge within the educational and social sciences. Students will work closely with supervisor(s) to develop each stage of research. Supervisors will also help put together a programme of additional courses and activities to support progress towards the completion of the thesis. The department can provide postgraduate supervision in geography, business, history and RE education, as well as assessment issues, educational assessment, the impact of testing in schools and international assessment, education policy and politics, qualifications development, accreditation and regulation and comparative studies), initial teacher education, curriculum development and general secondary teaching. IOE doctoral graduates in the Department of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment progress to careers in education, university teaching, educational research, policy and curriculum development. They can be found in almost every occupational field and there are a wide variety of career paths.
