Greek Page – whatever you want to call it

Welcome to a new and innovative Master of Arts programme presented jointly by

  • Nottingham University (School of Education) and the
  • Piraeus University of Applied Sciences (Department of Computer Systems Engineering)

This course is unique in the field: leading to a postgraduate qualification in both a Greek and a UK university and approved by the Ministry of Education (FEK 106/27.01.2016 – Β’ No. 78). It is a part time course presented across 4 semesters in both online and classroom modes.

It provides a distinctive perspective on the theories and practices that underpin successful learning and teaching as typically supported by innovation with new digital technologies. So this programme promises a deeper understanding of human learning and, in addition, an exploration of how new technologies can be creatively applied within schools, universities and the workplace.

Modules are delivered and assessed in English. Accredited or demonstrable competence with oral and written English is expected of candidates. But students can expect this course to broaden their language knowledge and their academic communication skills – as well presenting to them state-of-the-art developments in this exciting field.

After the successful completion the Master of Arts student will be awarded a joint Master of Arts degree

MA in Education Sciences & Learning Technologies,
(ΜΔΕ στις Επιστήμες της Αγωγής και τις Μαθησιακές Τεχνολογίες)

The taught lectures will be given in the Piraeus University of Applied Sciences campus in Aigaleo, Attica, Greece alongside significant online learning resources.

Nottingham University is in the top 100 of 2018 QS World University Rankings.   Nottingham’s School of education is ranked 3rd in the UK in the current UK Research Excellence Framework and has an outstanding ‘Gold’ rating from the UK Teaching Excellence Framework. This MA is supported by researchers at the Nottingham Learning Sciences Research Institute (LSRI). Further information can be found at the Univ. of Nottingham site.

 

The course is normally extended over two academic years (4 semesters).

During the first 3 semesters, students are expected to successfully complete 120 credits of taught modules. The fourth semester is dedicated to writing a dissertation.

Submission of the dissertation is allowed only to students that have successfully completed all modules according to the course syllabus.

Application forms are now available.

 

Course Introduction

The course design endeavours to create a lively community of part time learners and to offer them good modes of contact with staff. Teaching is delivered in a modern distance learning environment, supported by personal contact through Internet. In addition, regular classes are delivered face-to-face on the PUAS campus, Aigaleo, Greece.

You will engage with a wide range of digital tools, including e-portfolios, social media, and virtual learning environments.

Personal access to good internet facilities will be necessary. University registrations will then provide various tools for digital learning, including access to an extensive online library of research texts, journals and private study resources. Students will be members of both Universities and have personal IDs and passwords to access libraries and a variety of academic facilities.

The working language for all teaching and examinations will be English. Applicants must present evidence of language competence. This is normally a recent IELTs certificate (which may be taken at these Greek venues).  Some equivalences are allowed (see this document). Where strong alternative language evidence is available this may be assessed by interview. You may wish to contact us to discuss your options.
