The Master of Educational leadership is designed to provide aspiring and current educational leaders with an understanding of recent developments in theory, research, policy and practice in educational leadership.
The programme consists of eight courses. Two core courses and four elective courses are selected from Educational Leadership, and two courses may be selected from either the Educational Leadership electives or Master of Education courses (see Master of Education brochure for more information). Students wishing to go on to higher degree study after graduation are encouraged to include research methodology and a research project as part of their programme. Subject to the approval of the Programme Convenor, a student may also select up to two Master level courses from other Schools and Faculties at UNSW.
