Our Master of Education (MEd) qualifications are designed to give current teachers, counsellors or other educational professionals the opportunity to improve their ability to examine critically significant issues in education, develop their leadership skills or undertake research in their fields of interest.
Our MEd offers flexibility, with courses offered through a range of delivery methods with campus and/or distance options available. You can complete your MEd full time over one year or part time over five years.
Please note this qualification is not a pathway to teacher registration, if you wish to study to become a registered teacher check out our Initial Teacher Education qualifications.
The MEd can be completed via coursework only, thesis only or you may choose to complete via a coursework and thesis pathway. The unendorsed pathway gives you the option to tailor your MEd to your preference from the schedule of courses. The endorsed pathway gives you the option to choose from our specialist endorsements.
