Description

This program is only available for currently enrolled students. No new enrolments will be accepted. Please see program code 40013 for the new Master of Leadership and Management in Education program.

The Master of Leadership and Management in Education program is focused on exposing students to innovative research and practice in the leadership, management and administration of educational institutions. Taught by experienced practitioners and active researchers in the field, this program explicitly integrates theory and practice to enable graduates to apply the latest research to refine and improve practice in their own contexts. Many alumni of the program have been successful in gaining promotion and/or admission to doctoral study.

Why study with us?

The Master of Leadership and Management in Education program at the University of Newcastle is a cutting edge, practically oriented, highly relevant master’s degree program for education of leaders and managers. The Master of Leadership and Management in Education program has attracted students from all Australian states and territories, and over 34 countries.

Study a Language

All domestic students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.

International students cannot enrol concurrently in the Diploma in Languages alongside their primary program unless they can complete both programs within the duration of their primary program CoE. For more information please contact the ESOS Student Compliance Unit ESOS@newcastle.edu.au.
