Course summary

Course overview

Assessing and understanding community needs to provide modes of delivery and educational content that improves levels of attainment and life chances, is the structural and thematic rationale of our course. This perspective is developed in two related areas: nationally, motivated by the increasing independence of schools; and internationally, particularly in developing countries, motivated by globalisation.

Learning

The course draws most of its modules from those that already exist on other current education MA courses within the Faculty. Each of the courses from which the modules are drawn are led and taught by staff with national and international expertise.

Teaching methods

Teaching and assessment take place in an exciting range of forms, which are designed to stimulate and best support your learning, and include podcasts, presentations, journals, interviews, written assignments, seminars and tutorials.

Assessment

You will be assessed through a palette of standardised assessment modes as determined by our module leaders.
