We’ve designed this Education programme at Anglia Ruskin University for professionals across the education spectrum, from early years and school education to the further, higher and adult sectors.
You can pursue your topic in many different fields supported by educational experts and a comprehensive programme that includes in-depth research training.
Your research project must focus on some element of policy or practice and be designed to promote innovation and improvement locally, regionally or nationally.
During the structured first stage of the programme, you’ll develop your research ideas with the help of an academic adviser. Six weekend workshops will provide research training and orientation.
With your proposal formally approved you’ll then progress to the supervised research stage of your degree, developing your thesis with support from .your supervisors
The programme concludes in the submission of your final thesis and a ‘viva voce’ examination to defend it.
You’ll receive comprehensive postgraduate training and develop transferrable skills that will equip you for your research project and wider career.
These skills include research planning, use of research methods and techniques, development of theoretical concepts, research analysis, conference presentation, academic writing and publishing.
We’ll encourage you to publish articles during your research project and present your findings at conferences, including those we hold here at the University.
Many of our research graduates enhance their careers by using their findings to recommend new policies or pilot new practice, locally or nationally.
