About PME

Professional Masters of Education (PME)

The Professional Masters of Education (PME) at the School of Education, University College Dublin is a two-year, full-time Level 9 programme which is creative, innovative and a leading model in teacher education internationally. The PME will qualify its graduates to teach two subjects at post-primary level (junior and senior cycles) once they meet the requirements of the Teaching Council. For further information on subject qualification please check the Teaching Council criteria available here.

During the PME, you will study the foundation disciplines of education; methodologies related to your subject specialism; hear from speakers, practitioners and researchers from a wide range of organisations who will inform, support and develop your practice as a teacher. You will complete a 6,000 word piece of practitioner research inquiring into one aspect of your practice as a teacher, which may relate specifically to a phenomenon you observe during your school placement. The course is wide-ranging, informative both theoretically and practically, and features cutting-edge, stimulating and interesting contributors who have considerable experience and expertise about Irish schooling and education.
