I have a query as a PGCE student (as of September) about masters credits.
I realise a PGCE is worth 60 credits at Master and is therefore a third of the MA but I was wandering if another 60 credit, masters level module, would count towards the MA in education.
I understand this seems like a stupid question but rather than do the full MA after my PGCE I was considering doing another PGcert also 60 credits. I'm really interested in a PGcert in Special Education Needs. And basically was wandering if this would work out at 120 out of 180 master credits or not. The reason for my enquiry is I don't want to tie myself into a full MA after my PGCE but want to go straight into (or with a year gap between the courses) this course whilst working in a school. As the course is 1 year distance it is perfect for me (it's in the north of England and I live in the south) but it also means I don't have to commit to the full MA and 120 additional credits.
Basically to sum up, would this (if I decided to do an MA) mean I have 120 credits and therefore only need the thesis/dissertation?
Thanks in advance. All advice appreciated.
