Course summary

The part-time Inclusion and Special Educational Needs SENCo degree is designed for SENCos who hold the National Award for Special Educational Needs Coordination (NASENCo). It is for those who wish to continue their studies and gain a full MEd with a specific focus on understanding the individual needs of children.

On our specialised Inclusion, and Special Educational Needs (SENCo) postgraduate degree, you will study modules from courses such as Autism, Language, Literacy and Dyslexia, Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and Inclusion and Special Educational. Those who are undertaking the MEd will also work towards completion of a dissertation under the supervision of University of Birmingham staff.

The Inclusion and Special Educational Needs (ISEN) programme uses a variety of delivery modes including distance learning and blended learning depending on the pathway taken. The MEd dissertation supervision may be completed wholly online.


This degree is designed to supplement SENCOs already working in the field who wish to follow a more specialist special educational needs pathway. It is highly suited to those who aspire to develop inclusion within schools and across local areas and multi academy trusts. The qualification is also of use for those wishing to work in local authority or advocacy roles.

Many of our graduates successfully apply for roles working with children and young people with special educational needs. The course also provides an opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Education, which includes progression to a PhD.
