Mastersness Toolkit - QAA Scotland

The Masterness toolkit is designed to facilitate discussions and debate between all of those involved in the postgraduate student experience about the nature of master's level study.

The toolkit has been designed to be as fluid as possible - there is no 'right way to use it' and indeed QAA Scotland encourage people to develop and refine it and use it in any way they think would be helpful.

The toolkit comprises a set of 'facet' cards, a handbook, a leaflet, a background paper and a synthesis of case studies.

Each 'facet' card describes and defines a 'facet' of master's level study and gives examples of learning and teaching practices designed to develop that facet.  The facets are:

  • Abstraction
  • Autonomy
  • Depth
  • Complexity
  • Research and Enquiry
  • Professionalism
  • Unpredictability
