Postgraduate Programmes in the School of Education

Welcome to our online chat event, which is designed to give prospective postgraduate students more information about the programmes on offer in the school of Education:

  • Taught Masters and Professional Development Programmes: (also know as CPD) in the School of Education offer you an opportunity to participate in a distinctive range of courses across a variety of fields of study which are all linked to the research interests of members of staff.
  • Initial Teacher Education Courses: We have a long tradition of providing high quality teacher training courses in Primary and Secondary education at the University of Birmingham. We offer both University (PGDipEd) and School Direct (PGDipEd or PGCE) routes into teaching in the primary and secondary phases, including specialist routes for primary SEND and primary mathematics.
  • Postgraduate Research Degrees: The School of Education has national and international standing as a centre of excellence for research in education. The School provides wide and varied opportunities to undertake research programmes (Masters level research programmes, Taught doctoral programmes, Research degree by thesis) on a full or part-time basis that will support the growth of research skills and build on subject knowledge

A number of our postgraduate mentors are currently studying, or have studied at the School of Education. You are welcome to ask them any questions you have about what it’s like to work in the School.

Q&A Archive

These were the questions asked during the Postgraduate Programmes in the School of Education live event.

We’ve come to the end of our Q&A session today. Thank you very much to everyone who took part – I hope we managed to be of assistance and provide the information that you were looking for.

We will hold many more of these online chat events over the coming months so please check now and again to see what we’ve got lined up for the future. If you’d like to visit our campus (in real life!), our next Postgraduate Open Day will take place on Saturday 23 November 2019. We also run bespoke campus tours throughout term time and Cafés at which you can meet current students.

Welcome to this Live Q&A about the School of Education. Our members of staff are now online until 15:00 to answer your questions.

Your question will be posted on this feed once it has been answered, which might take a little time if we receive a lot of questions. Please don’t worry if you don’t see your question and its answer immediately – you only need to submit each question once and keep an eye on the feed for when the answer is posted.
