Provides an opportunity for those involved in educational practice to undertake advanced coursework and research in a field of particular interest.

When undertaking research, students are encouraged to become involved in applied research which attempts to provide solutions to the problems faced by learners, teachers, administrators, consultants and policy-makers.
