Research Methods in Education

Thursday 21st  -Sunday 24th May 2020

8:00am – 3.30pm

For Teachers pursuing their Masters programme through the University of Bath

The University of Bath, UK, in conjunction with Bangkok Patana School, offers an opportunity for qualified educators to participate in the University’s MA in Education programmes. The full MA programme comprises five taught units and a dissertation.  Each taught unit is followed by individual research and the submission of a 5000 word written assignment.

The next unit to be taught at the Bangkok Study Centre will be Research Methods in Education. The unit, which is relevant to teachers of all age ranges, has a number of aims, including the following:

  • to examine critically the specific nature of research and enquiry in education;
  • to examine the theories and forms of explanation used in educational research, and the types of knowledge generated in educational research;
  • to address the major ways of designing and conducting research studies to address a range of issues and problems in education; and
  • to consider the relationship between research, policy and practice in education.

The unit sessions will take place at Bangkok Patana School.

The fee for this 12 credit unit will be £1,265 payable in pounds sterling in advance. You may pay using a variety of methods.

An administrative charge (THB 4,000) will be levied locally to cover tutor costs, refreshments and other relevant costs, and this should be paid directly to Bangkok Patana School. Please contact Katherine Hume (, for local information.

Important Reminder:

Please note that if a viable group size has not been reached once the deadline for applications has passed (9 April 2020) the unit may be cancelled or postponed. Please do not make any travel or accommodation arrangements until you receive confirmation that the unit is definitely going ahead.
