Middlesex University Dubai offers you the opportunity to undertake a part-time, postgraduate degree directly related to your work in the educational field. The programme›s individual design is aimed at helping you achieve change in an educational field of your choosing, whether you are teacher, an administrator, or indeed anyone with a professional interest in education. Therefore it is relevant to all levels of the education spectrum: including primary, secondary and tertiary education. The courses cover a wide range of educational theory and practice, and introduce you to educational research methods.
The MA Education offers you the unique ability to choose your area of specialisation through opting for the MA Education (Leadership and Management) or the MA Education (Teaching and Learning). The initial areas of study are the same in each case so you can choose your area of specialisation in your dissertation.
The MA Education research process prioritises problem-solving, with a strong emphasis on design as the medium of change. The application of theory is channelled through models relevant to education, leadership and management. Strategies relevant to action theory and discourse will greatly assist you in structuring your project/dissertation, which owes much of its success to collaborative sessions with tutors and other students. You will also have ample opportunity to relate your studies to your own professional practice as you complete the assignments in the programme.
Both the MA Education (Leadership and Management) and the MA Education (Teaching and Learning) have 3 compulsory modules of 60 credit points each.
- Module 1: Developing Teaching and Learning
- Module 2: Developing Leadership and Management in Education
- Module 3: Dissertation
About Middlesex University Dubai
About the University
Middlesex University Dubai is the first overseas campus of the internationally renowned Middlesex University in London. The campus which opened in January 2005, has over 2,800 students from over 90 nationalities and offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a wide variety of subject areas. The origins of Middlesex University date back to 1878 and it is one of only a handful UK universities to have been awarded three Queen's anniversary prizes
Quality and Recognition
Middlesex University’s quality credentials are outstanding. Middlesex University is audited by the UK’s Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for Higher Education and the Dubai campus is an integral part of this audit process. Our Dubai campus is subject to the same rigorous quality assurance procedures that have earned Middlesex University the highest possible endorsement from the QAA.
Middlesex University Dubai is also licensed by the Dubai government’s Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA). Furthermore, the University Quality Assurance International Board at KHDA reviews all programmes on offer in Dubai to ensure that the quality of programmes taught in Dubai are equivalent to those at the home campus in London.
Academic programmes in Dubai have the same validation and monitoring system as in London, with the same examinations taken simultaneously in both cities. The Honours and Masters degrees awarded to Dubai campus students are therefore identical to those achieved by students at the London campuses, and students can transfer between campuses if they wish.
Whether in London or Dubai, Middlesex University students are prepared for a significant role in the global economy.See all Middlesex University Dubai courses
