    Technology is at the heart of modern education systems, workplaces and learning environments, and is critical to its success. However, sustainable innovations require a critical research-informed stance. The MSc Education (Learning and Technology) provides you with the opportunity to engage with research, practical application and collaborative exploration of this exciting and challenging field.

    The MSc aims to develop the skills and knowledge needed to progress as researchers and professionals who will engage with all aspects of the intersection between learning and technology in a wide range of contexts across the life course and globally.

    The most recent Oxford University Destination of Leavers from Higher Education Survey made contact with 635 master's course students who graduated from the Department of Education between 2012 and 2014. Fully 90.2% of alumni were in work and 5.8% in further study with only 2.0% looking for work, ranking the department in the best 3 of the 20 departments in Oxford's Social Sciences Division.

    Past DPhil students from the Department of Education have gone on to academic and research careers at universities in the UK (eg Oxford, Edinburgh, Warwick, UCL, King's College, St. Mary's, Liverpool) and across the world (eg Stanford, Princeton, MIT, Hong Kong, Chile), or are employed across a wide range of other sectors such as policy for government departments or NGOs, international organisations such as OECD, think tanks and administration at local and national levels. The department’s ‘Conversations with Alumni’ feature includes interviews with two DPhil alumni on their career paths after Oxford.

    This MSc will develop your skills and knowledge needed to progress as researchers and professionals who will engage with all aspects of the intersection between learning and technology in a wide range of contexts across the life course and globally.

    The key themes of the MSc Education (Learning and Technology) programme are:

    • Theoretical and methodological foundations
    • Policy and practice in learning and technology
    • Researching learning and technology
    • Advanced theoretical perspectives
    • New modes of learning and participation within a networked society
    • Exploring the futures of learning and technology

    The course is delivered through seminars, collaborative workshops, lectures and individual tutorials: approximately 200 hours contact time during the year.

    • generic and ICT-related research skills are developed by an extensive Foundations of Educational Research programme
    • opportunities are provided throughout the course for practical investigation and experience in a range of educational settings
    • the course is assessed through coursework and a final dissertation reporting an extended research study within the field.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
