Education research is a scientific field of study that examines education and learning processes and the human attributes, interactions, organizations, and institutions that shape educational outcomes. Research in an educational setting requires a very specific set of skills. An MSc in Educational Research enables students to demonstrate impact, excellence and distinctiveness in their chosen field, to be visionary, imaginative, innovative, reflective and creative, with high ideals and values, a strong sense of social justice, and the potential to be leaders in work and community. Graduates from a Master’s Degree in Educational Research gain a series of analytical and practical transferable skills that will enhance their career prospects in any field of choice. However, common career paths include academia or research within government and national or international organizations.
