The part-time course sessions are held at our Canterbury campus and are run in the evenings from 6-9pm. If you study Part-time, you will attend one module a term (each module consists of six sessions) and you will complete three modules per year.
As a full-time student, you will complete two modules per term as well as attending the stage 3 module and completing your dissertation. Teaching again takes place during evenings. Therefore, the full-time course involves studying two parallel modules each university term, along with the dissertation. International students normally study the full-time course.
All MA Modules carry the additional award of membership of the Teaching and Learning Academy (MTLA). You will be entitled to use the suffix MTLA after their names and will have personal use of the Teaching and Learning Academy’s logo. When you successfully accumulate MTLA awards you are awarded a Fellowship of the Teaching and Learning Academy (FTLA). There are no additional costs for the award of MTLA as this is part of the Canterbury offer and built into the selected credits awarded for each module.
