Course summary

Course Overview

MA Global Education and International Development addresses a complex array of interconnected challenges and issues in relation to education, understood in its broadest sense. The programme brings together theoretical and conceptual challenges with applied considerations for education practitioners and development interventions. The MA includes an option to take a placement module which enhances your professional skills and employability. The course is aimed at those working in the education sector who hope to increase the global reach of their work, and people who have an international development background and want to specialise in education issues.

Teaching and Assessment

Depending on which term modules run, you'll attend one or two 3-hour taught sessions for your module/s each week during the Autumn and Spring Terms, plus research methods training lectures and seminars throughout all three terms. If you are a part-time student the number of modules you take each term will depend on the length of your course. All students will have two optional modules (60 CATS) to select in total, with the placement module being a strongly recommended option. Depending on the modules you select, sessions consist of presentations, group discussions, a variety of interactive activities and self-study. Some modules are available online. Seminar group numbers vary depending on the modules that are selected. Assessment types vary depending on modules selected but may be a mixture of written assignments taking a variety of forms and oral presentations. You’ll also complete a dissertation based on an individual research project, with support from a member of academic staff.
