Course summary

Programme description

The MSc Inclusive Education has been designed for graduates who want to make a difference to the lives of children and young people in education. Our distinctive approach presents a re-imagined future for learners and teachers, where responding to human diversity is recognised as the point, not the problem, of education.

Enhance your opportunities for employment or advancement in the education field, particularly concerning educational and social disadvantage, additional support for learning and other specialist areas, on this programme. If you are a graduate in education, psychology and related social science backgrounds you will find that the programme builds on your previous study.

You will compare inclusive educational practices in Scotland, the UK and across the world. You will study particular approaches to removing barriers to learning and including all children.

Learning outcomes

On successful completion of this programme you will be able to:

  • Develop and appropriately apply knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to inclusive education and the contexts in which it takes place.
  • Reflect critically on the relationships between theory and practice and explore issues in the implementation of educational and social principles and ideals.
  • Engage with and where appropriate influence policy issues and the practice of professionals in relation to the delivery of inclusive education.
  • Develop extended skills in research and enquiry, including the use of literature, reviewing evidence, gathering, organising and evaluating data, responding to evidence and providing critical comment.

Career opportunities

Suiting newly qualified teachers and experienced practitioners alike, this programme provides a qualification that can open doors to a new career in inclusive and special education or an advanced role in the field.

Many graduates continue or go on to become teachers in schools and further/higher education, taking on leadership positions in education, or specialist or peripatetic teaching posts in relation to visually impaired, deaf or bilingual learners. Some work with NGOs and third sector organisations, in policy positions in education, or go on to doctoral-level research.

It can also provide the foundations for a career in policy formation and development, as well as a broad range of highly transferable skills, such as communication and project management, which can be applied to roles in any field.
