Study Centres are a way of undertaking part-time study for the MA Education programme. They are based in a number of locations across the world, which allow us to offer units at various times of the year in a continually changing programme.

What is a Study Centre?

  • Study Centres are located in host schools around the world.
  • Each Study Centre experience consists of four days of intensive study, taught by a visiting University of Bath lecturer at the host school.
  • We are continually updating our programme of Study Centres so the venues we choose and units we offer remain varied and exciting.
  • The units are offered according to student demand and are generally core units for named MA pathways or are units which can count towards the International Baccalaureate Educator Certificates.
  • If you cannot attend a Summer School or an on-campus term-time session, then Study Centres are a great opportunity to participate in lively classroom discussion with like-minded colleagues.
