Seven years later, and having pondered the idea of doing a Master's in Mathematics Education for a while, I chose King's again, now as an adult part-time student. For me, the Master's provided access to recent research in mathematics education, and opened up debates around issues relating to the inception and impact of national policy on classroom practice. I followed the Master's with a full-time PhD, supervision throughout the 4 years was exemplary.
I left England shortly after completing the PhD, and armed with references from my supervisors, gained a post-doctoral research post in mathematics education at Wits University in Johannesburg. I continue to collaborate with King's staff on research, and would not hesitate to recommend King's for anyone considering postgraduate study.
