The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MSc Education (Research Design and Methodology) introduces you to the range of tools and concepts that are necessary in educational research and provides you with the knowledge and abilities to undertake your own research and to evaluate the research of others. The course covers a range of quantitative and qualitative methods of data collection and data analysis, and introduces you to the challenges of carrying out social research in the field of education. Students will normally complete six taught modules: These are assessed through written assignments. In addition students will complete a research dissertation of up to 20,000 words. The teaching methods include tutor presentations, small group work, student led presentations, seminars, workshops, tutorials, and individual research projects. You will participate in classes on research design, and on the quantitative and qualitative data analysis that is used to yield research findings. Supervision sessions will support you in identifying research questions towards dissertation research, selecting areas for literature review, carrying out field work, and reviewing drafts of the dissertation. Supported ICT sessions on literature access skills (including electronic searches) are provided by OUDE library staff. A particular feature of the course is that all students may take part in an optional â??internshipâ?? where they work with an academic on an ongoing research project. During this time they gain experience by working on the variety of activities that are an everyday part of doing educational research. The MSc programme is offered on both a full time (one year) and part time (two year) basis. The degree and expectations for both modes of study are equally rigorous: part time students attend classes with full time students, but these are spread over two years to balance with work and personal circumstances. Part time students attend classes one day per week during term time and are encouraged to spend at least one further day a week working in Oxford libraries and participating in relevant research seminars and research events or taking non-assessed courses.
