Part-Time Postgrad courses in Education

Share your love of learning


We offer eight part-time masters courses in education. Our courses are designed for busy professionals, practitioners and leaders working across the field of education.

Here at Manchester Met, our experience developing education professionals and teachers spans 100 years. We’re a leading provider in teacher training - more than 1,000 teachers are trained in our Faculty each year, so we really understand the needs of modern teachers.

We work in partnership with 1,500 schools, colleges and organisations from education, community, charity, arts and business. Our Faculty is also home to a UK leading Education and Social Research Institute (ESRI), an internationally recognised centre of excellence for applied educational research and evaluation.

You might be a primary school teacher, or working in higher education. Perhaps you're a youth worker, librarian, or self-employed tutor. Whichever education setting you're involved in, our seven professional development courses are all delivered part-time, so that you can fit studying around your work and life commitments. 

Each course has a flexible structure. You're able to tailor your learning to your practice and personalise your assignments. You’ll have the opportunity to progress through your masters course at a rate that you feel comfortable with.

Throughout the course, the support that I received from my tutors at Manchester Met was the best I have experienced throughout my education. Having the flexibility to attend seminars in the evenings allowed me to fit the modules around my job.

Across each course, our philosophy is to encourage you to ask questions, explore and critique theory, and reflect on your practice. These aren’t courses where we teach you ‘what a good education looks like’. Our aim is to support you in developing your own ideas and theories about practice.

We teach using an integrated curriculum. You'll attend weekend conferences and study sessions with students from other part-time education courses. This allows you to collaborate, share knowledge and expertise, and be a part of a diverse community of education professionals.
