Course details

Summary

Build on your professional experience and broaden your knowledge and skills in the field of education with postgraduate study.

Take your degree and experience to the next level and become an expert in your area of interest in education.

This programme is a great opportunity for educators, policy makers and those in related fields to complete a postgraduate qualification that can be designed to suit a specific field of interest, and fitted around work commitments.

Tailor your studies

Design your study to suit your career goals and commitments. Choose from a range of courses covering subjects such as multicultural and international education, educational policy and leadership, youth development, and Maori, Pacific and indigenous education. Or you might explore the issues around sustainability and the environment in education, learn about evaluation and assessment, or develop your skills in teaching ESOL.

You can complete the Master of Education either by coursework or by a combination of coursework and a thesis or dissertation.

Or you can complete the coursework-based Postgraduate Certificate in Education or Postgraduate Diploma in Education.

If you are planning on doing a dissertation or thesis course, you'll need to achieve an average grade of B or above for all your other postgraduate courses and a B+ or better in EDUC 503.

Study pathways

You don't have to jump straight in the deep end study towards your Master of Education using the stair-casing options. The 60-point Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a great first step into postgraduate study and leads to the Postgraduate Diploma in Education which then leads to the Master of Education.

If you enrol in the Master's programme but don't complete it, you may be able to graduate with the Certificate or Diploma.

Study your way

Take advantage of flexible study options and study completely online from anywhere in the world or take a mix of online and campus-based courses. You can also choose to study all your courses in person on campus.
