Master of Education

Develop advanced knowledge and critical analysis skills in the broader area of education. The Master of Education is designed for professionals in early childhood education, compulsory education, adult and tertiary education and non-formal education.

Our Master of Education responds to students’ desire for a shorter, more flexible and more tailored postgraduate educational qualification. The program offers flexibility, has a simple structure, and enables students to pursue an area of interest through research.

The Master of Education is designed to prepare students to undertake research in education. It's not a teaching qualification and it does not lead to registration as a teacher with the Teaching Council of Aotearoa New Zealand.
