Course summary

The Education and International Development MA will introduce the concepts of development and educational development, and help students assess the role of education and learning in the development process by engaging with theory and research. It will explore the relationship between education and wider social processes in contexts of poverty and inequality, and critically examine relevant contemporary policy issues, with a focus on low- and middle-income countries. This programme provides students with the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of key aspects of theory, policy and practice in relation to education and international development, and skills and knowledge in research methods and analysis. Students benefit from being taught by renowned researchers of education and international development, as well as international guest speakers. Students will also meet and study alongside a diverse student group: our alumni are from more than 80 countries. Part time/flexible students typically take one module each term. All students must attend at least one face-to-face module in London.;
