Master in Teaching & Learning (MTL)

(Full-time day)

The Master in Teaching & Learning (MTL) represents a Level 7 (MQF) qualification, graduates of which will be eligible to apply for a warrant to join the teaching profession. The MTL is a two-year full-time course, which will enable graduates to teach at Primary and Secondary level, according to the area of specialisation chosen.

The areas covered by the course include Pedagogical Content Knowledge,  Educational Context Knowledge and Educational Research and Inquiry. These areas, offered by the Faculty of Education, will be intrinsically related to Field Placement in schools during which students will be mentored and assessed. Furthermore, the wider educational context will be included in the programme through Educational Themes and Creative Positive Learning Environments.

The MTL aims to prepare teachers who can deal professionally with their learners’ needs within a changing local education system, as well as in light of developments within the international context.
