International education is a complex and changing subject. Education professionals have the challenge of promoting economic growth and competition, while supporting the development of sustainable and cohesive societies and promoting equity and social justice.
Attracting individuals across the UK and around the world, the course asks you to think deeply around questions relating to the economics, politics and social issues relating to education and development.
We’ll give you an in-depth understanding of the issues relating to educational development around the world. You’ll have opportunities work with, and learn from, students taking our other MA education programmes – Education Studies: Early Years; and Education: Leadership and Management. This can add breadth to your study, alongside your primary focus on international education.
We’ll equip you with a good grounding in statistical and qualitative research approaches. This will prepare you for writing your dissertation in the final trimester, in which you’ll develop your knowledge and understanding in a particular area of international education through in-depth research.
We’ll support you to complete your dissertation studies within a range of institutions and organisations involved in national and international education, including policy and advocacy organisations; schools, colleges and universities; NGOs and international organisations.
