Degree awarded: MEd
Duration: 12 months FT 24 months PT
A good honours degree (minimum 2:1 classification), or the overseas equivalent, in any discipline is required. Candidates who do not meet the minimum 2:1 entry requirement must demonstrate evidence of ability to study at Master's level (e.g. by having already completed a Master's degree in another discipline).
Please submit the following documents with your application:
- Copies of official degree certificates or transcripts of your previous study, showing the subjects taken and grades obtained. If these documents are in languages other than English please provide official translations.
- Two written references, signed by the referee and on official headed paper
- A personal statement (one side of A4 paper) detailing why you wish to study the course, your experiences, what you can bring to the course and any other information that you see as relevant to your application
- Copies of English Language Certification, e.g. IELTS, TOEFL or Pearson test score report; WAEC certificate
Applicants may be invited to interview before a final decision is made so that their suitability for the course can be assessed. This is likely to be for applicants who do not have any previous experience of psychology and/or education or whose personal statement does not provide enough information about their motivation to study at this level. For overseas students we will try to arrange interview through Skype or other media.
Course fees: For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:
- MEd (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £6,300
International students (per annum): £14,000
- MEd (part-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £3,150
The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.
Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.
