MSc in Digital Education


Programme content and structure

The programme consists of one core course and a series of options.

  • If you complete 60 credits successfully you can exit with a Postgraduate Certificate.
  • On successful completion of 120 credits, you can exit with a Postgraduate Diploma, or choose to proceed to the MSc.
  • For progression to MSc (180 credits) you must complete the ‘Research methods’ course as one of your options before embarking on the Dissertation. Normally this course is taken last, immediately before beginning the dissertation.

In all cases, you must take the core course, ‘An introduction to digital environments for learning’, first. A selection of the optional courses will be offered each semester. Each course runs over one semester – approximately 12 weeks (details of semester times are available). For more detail on course content, see the following links.
