Course summary

Explore key challenges and developments in education in today’s global context.

Gain an in-depth understanding of education as a field of study, and the connections between education and other social institutions that play a role in tackling complex education problems.

Through modules that include comparative and international perspectives, you will study experiences from the UK and across the world and explore the complex issues facing teachers, education leaders and decision makers in an increasingly globalised context.

The MSc Education allows you to explore the practical areas of curricular design, planning for teaching and learning in a rapidly changing world, the effects of globalisation on educational ideas and practices, and the future of education.

Working closely with classmates and academic staff, you will have the opportunity to explore these questions and to benefit from interdisciplinary perspectives, including education, sociology and psychology. You’ll be challenged to evaluate and formulate recommendations for educational practices and organisation, and to design innovative interventions that will empower learners by improving the quality and relevance of their education.

The programme gives particular attention to the largest education sectors, primary and secondary education, but also gives you the opportunity to discuss developments in education from a broader, lifelong learning perspective – from pre-primary education and higher education to adult learning and non-formal education – that recognises the interconnections between the different parts of education systems. For your dissertation project, you can choose to focus on any level of formal education or on non-formal education.

The programme is suited to those who have an interest in education practice, organisation or research. This includes those who have little or no professional experience of education-related work to mid-career professionals engaged in teaching, educational leadership and organisation or other education-related activities.

Please note that whilst this programme is suitable for educational professionals seeking to develop their career, it is not a teaching qualification and does not provide Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
