Course summary

Why this course?

The MSc Autism provides a critical understanding of the conceptual frameworks relevant to understanding Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This Masters-level course enables you to understand complex cognitive and affective theories essential to supporting the autism profile.

This knowledge will enable you to translate theory into practice and to critically evaluate evidence-based approaches to intervention. Our philosophy that autistic people require a holistic approach throughout their life journey means you can draw upon experiences of our multi-professional student cohort. Our students include leading professionals, students on the spectrum and those with dual professional-parental experiences. Your learning will be inspired from input provided by internationally respected autism experts.

What you’ll study

You'll take four compulsory classes and two optional classes and then complete dissertation. You'll be allocated a dissertation supervisor who will support your studies.

You can complete your final dissertation by distance learning. This allows international students to complete their studies in their home country, potentially reducing the financial cost and time away from your family.

Research project

You’ll carry out a research dissertation in a subject area of your choice. We'll allocate a supervisor for one-to-one support whilst you carry out and report your dissertation. We endeavour to match you with the best fit for your area of specialism.

Placement

Our students benefit from a supportive educational practice placement based within our partner schools across North Lanarkshire. Those potential students wishing to apply who don't possess the required autism practice experience can do so but must attend a compulsory placement and complete an additional reflective practice journal.

Assessment

The course is assessed through written coursework that draws on academic study and reflection on practical experiences in education.
