MA Education (Leadership)

To help you feel prepared for your postgraduate studies, we’ve gathered together some suggested reading, useful websites to visit and some key questions to think about.

Suggested reading

You’ll be given lots of information about which textbooks to read and introduced to the University Library, as well as the many ebooks we have for you to access, when you begin your studies in September. We don’t recommend rushing out to buy texts before you arrive. But if you can pick some up second hand, borrow from a library or access online, we suggest:

  • Bush (2018) Research on educational leadership and management: Broadening the base. Educational Management Administration & Leadership. 46(3):359-361.

Key questions

Start exploring the following questions:

  • Who are the key thinkers in the field of educational leadership?
  • What are the key trends in the development of educational leadership in the 21st century?
  • What are the characteristics of high-quality leadership training programmes?
