The University of Otago College of Education offers postgraduate programmes which are grounded in academically oriented, research-based studies of educational issues, theories, policies and practices at the Certificate, Diploma, Master and Doctoral level.
The Master of Teaching and Learning (MTchgLn) qualifies students to become primary and secondary teachers. See Applying to an Initial Teacher Education Programme for more information and to check application dates. View the College of Education Prospectus for Initial Teacher Education and Education Studies and the list of Secondary Curriculum Subjects.
Other programmes do not qualify students to become teachers but 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.
