Emergent student trajectories, experiences, and needs: MSc Education Studies

Project: Non-funded project

Project Details


This survey explored the personal and professional trajectories, motivations and needs of Strathclyde Institute of Education's MSc Education Studies students in the January and September cohorts. As the course has grown exponentially just over a few years, attracting students from new geographies, age groups and experience in formal education, the course leaders of the programme undertook this scoping survey in order to better understand the trajectories and motivations that bring students to our programme. The objective of collecting and collating this information was two-fold. On the one hand, it was to develop a better understanding of the personal and academic circumstances and needs of the students and look better to address them in the current and future cohorts. On the other hand, this information will help us and other course leaders plan better for future cohorts when it comes to academic content, student services and professional development needs.
