The new academic year starts… with the MA: DTCE’s biggest ever cohort

Congratulations on your acceptance to the University of Manchester. We are enormously pleased to welcome our new students  to our MA DTCE family!

For the 2016-17 academic year,  we have  63 new starters, of which 44 are on campus students and the rest are Distance Learners, joining us from all corners of the world (Europe, Australia, Japan, India, Uganda, China, Canada, Malaysia). This is the biggest ever intake on the MA: Digital Technologies, Communication and Education.

Including our returning distance learners and those finishing off dissertations, this means we now have 100 students in total; easily our largest ever cohort and quite a growth since we launched the MA: DTCE in 2007 with around 25 students.

Clearly there is still a lot of interest, not just in educational technology per se but the MA: DTCE’s distinctive mix of this subject matter with studies of how communication and formal and informal learning processes throughout society are affected by things like the news media, social media and political change.
We still attract teachers as students, whether they be working in early years education, primary or secondary schools, or at colleges and universities. But our cohort now also includes several journalists, musicians, web site developers, corporate training specialists, learning technologists, programme officers…. In short anyone with an interest in learning, technology and communication.

Unfortunately, enrollment for 2016-17 is now closed; but it is not too early to apply for the following year. Either way, we wish all our students well!
