You must have the minimum of a:
- bachelors degree (in any subject) from a UK university, or
- professional qualification equivalent to a UK bachelors degree, or
- qualification from a university outside the UK and equivalent to a UK bachelors degree.
Some knowledge and understanding of learning and teaching (around curriculum, pedagogy and assessment) will be expected.
We recommend you have an IELTS (International English Language Testing System) score of 7.0 if English is not your first language.
You must also have:
*EE811, EE814, EE817 or one of the discontinued modules E805, E854, E855, E891, EE880, EXA884, EXC884, EXG884, EXL884, EXM884, EXN884, EXP884 or EXT884
You do not need to be employed in or have access to an educational setting to study this module. However, it is important that you have an interest in education and some experience of engaging or working with learners, children or young people as all our learning experiences are all explored through the lens of education. You will need to be in a position to be able to apply your learning to a relevant context or learning environment. In order to get the most out of your studies on EE831 you do need to have an educational context that you know well, in mind to which you can apply what you learn. This may be somewhere you have worked in the past, or somewhere that you volunteer as a School Governor or in some other role.
Outside the UK
Synchronous tutorials and communications could be difficult to deliver to students outside the UK due to time differences. If you can’t attend the synchronous tutorials or make synchronous communications, you can use asynchronous alternative methods, such as watching recorded tutorials and emailing questions.
If you haven’t studied EE830, we highly recommend you complete our badged open course Looking globally: the future of education. This free six-week course runs twice a year – in March and October.
