Perhaps you work with children and young people or are a teacher thinking about taking your learning to the next level? Or you might simply want to know more about research and how you can take your research interest further.
On this page we have brought together a number of courses that look at aspects of postgraduate study including what it is like to study online, the skills needed at postgraduate level and insights into the OU's Masters in Education and Masters in Childhood & Youth qualifications.
Wherever you wish to take your learning next, there is a course here that can help with that next step.
Looking Globally: the future of education and Becoming an Ethical Researcher are OpenLearn Courses both embedded in the OU's Masters in Childhood & Youth (F55) & Masters in Education (F70) qualifications. A full Masters qualification is studied in three Stages over three years (maximum six years) but you can step off after the first and second years to claim a Certificate or Diploma respectively.
Our OpenLearn courses and our qualification programme emphasise real-world issues and problem-solving skills, which are highly valued by employers. Practice and policy are central to postgraduate study and will encourage you to think critically about how to apply your learning to your own context.
