Postgraduate Programmes

The University of Otago College of Education offers postgraduate programmes at the Certificate, Diploma, Master and Doctoral level.

One programme, the Master of Teaching and Learning (MTchgLn) qualifies students to become teachers.

The other programmes do not qualify students to become teachers, rather they provide advanced study in education for those who are already experienced teachers, or who have an undergraduate qualification in education. Several have been specifically designed for teachers, while others are for anyone interested in the study of education.

Our programmes are grounded in academically oriented, research-based studies of educational issues, theories, policies and practices.

The majority of our programmes are able to be completed at a distance.

Available programmes:

An overview of our postgraduate programmes for teachers and others interested in the study of education is available in our postgraduate pamphlet. PDF 750k
