The online Master of Teaching (MTeach) offers a blend of learning opportunities for the developing teacher or leader in education who aims to advance their practices while working. Studying at a distance means you can also visit Stranmillis for support and supervision, and you can utilise our online facilities. If you prefer, you can study remotely by following an online programme of learning. MTeach students will have access to a single studies advisor throughout the programme, offering one point of contact and continuous learning support. All modules in the table below are 30 CATS unless otherwise noted.
Students who have acquired prior learning either from past professional experience or certified learning (e.g. PGCE) are invited to apply for the recognition of prior learning in order to claim possible advanced standing on the course. This will involve submitting a robust claim for learning with the studies advisor for the programme, as RPL advisor, where decisions about exemptions and advanced standing will normally be taken pre-enrolment. A prior learning claim can save a student both fees in line with RPL procedures, and, time, when a claim is successful. Up to one third of the course may be claimed in terms of prior learning. An advisor will work with all claimants to support their pre entry recognition of prior learning.
