A new series of videos have been released to explain what it’s like to be a student on our MSc in Educational Assessment. 

The videos hear from Course Director Michelle Meadows and student William Teasley who explain what the course is all about. 

Michelle said: “We’re hoping the videos highlight what the set up and benefits of the course are and give prospective students a taste of what they can expect. It’s a really fantastic course and so much of our student body gives such great feedback we wanted to share their perspective. 

“The great benefit of the course is that, being part time, it is ideal for those who want to keep working whilst also deepening their understanding of assessment. 

“I’d encourage interested parties to have a look at the new videos and get an application in early.” 

This two-year, part-time MSc programme combines teaching sessions within the Department and online support through the University’s Virtual Learning Environment (Canvas).   

On completion of the course, graduates will have a sound understanding of the design of assessment systems, the options available and their implications. They will be able to analyse the quality of assessments and engage in research, policy and practice questions in an informed and critical manner. 

The Masters qualification will have an impact upon the quality of educational assessments in a wide range of settings by enhancing assessment skills and increasing opportunities for progression to senior positions in educational assessment organisations both nationally and internationally.
