Great course with academics at the forefront for educational researchPros:
Pros - The university is extremely assailable with excellent transport links. The university is intentionally recognised with a phenomenal academic reputation. Additionally, the programme that I studied was at the Institute of Education which has been rated number one globally for education research for the fourth consecutive year.Cons:
Cons - You may find that some of your chosen optional modules run in the summer term, which can make juggling the assignment for the module/s and a lengthy dissertation quite taxing. When I was completing this programme, the dissertation was in excess of 17,000 words, with a assignment of 5,000 words that was originally due on the same day. This is could prepration for those intending to pursue a PHD, but I feel some very popular optional modules should have been available to study in the autumn and the spring/summer term to enable a more manageable workload.Suggestions:
Get involved in as many educational volunteering activities as possible.
