Education

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Although some education can be very informal, most mainstream education happens in a more formalized setting. This sort of education is typically divided into various stages, which include preschool, kindergarten, middle school, and high school. Higher education includes college, post graduate programs, masters degrees, and doctorates.
