Course summary

The International Development and Education course explores the different dimensions and forms of education internationally. You'll explore education-related challenges and opportunities in international development, such as international targets of education, foreign aid, and the global market of education.This course offers annual field trips and placements. Through these experiences, you will critically explore the assumptions and beliefs behind the role of education in development, and its attempt to break the cycle of poverty and inequality. The field trips and placements enable opportunities to make connections between real-world international education and the ideas explored in seminars and lectures. You will also benefit from recent research in the Centre for Policy, Pedagogy and Practice (PPP), Centre for Research in Scientific and Technological Learning and Education (CRiSTLE) and Centre for Research into Equity, Inclusion and Community (CREIC). **More about the Professional Placement Year**A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers and Employability Team.
