Are you thinking of exploring new ways to teach and engage pupils with STEM? Would you like to discuss the benefits of using innovative approaches to teaching climate change at school? What will STEM education look like in the future? 

These are just some questions considered in the MA in STEM Education.

Now into its fourth year, applications are open for up to 15 scholarships to study for an MA in STEM Education. Funded by WIPRO Limited, the scholarships cover 70% of the tuition fees. The scholarships are open to current teachers based in English schools.

Dr Melissa Glackin, programme director for the MA, says:

"We are so excited to be able to offer these scholarships again to teachers. It really is an outstanding opportunity as it enables the programme to continue to have students from diverse backgrounds to share their experiences and understandings of STEM education."

You can find out more about the scholarships and eligibility here. Applications close on Monday 27 June 2022.

The course

The MA in STEM Education provides a national, international and practically-oriented understanding of the ways in which core debates across formal and informal STEM education can shape response to pressing social and environmental questions.

The MA is run by the Centre for Research in Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (CRESTEM) at King’s. It is one of the largest, highly regarded research centres of its kind in the UK.

Students have access to the School's Maker Lab. This creative space was created for the MA in STEM Education and is a relaxed, creative setting where students come to create, invent and make. This space is used on the Making and Creating module that forms part of the MA. Making is an emerging area of interest for supporting engagement in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Find out more about our maker space here.

Students also have the chance to embark on placements and internships at renowned institutions such as WWF or the Natural History Museum, where they can gain unique insights into STEM-education organisations as well as learning and forging new relationships.

You can watch and hear students talk about the course as a whole below. The video was filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic.
