Course description

The MA Education International (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) will provide you with the opportunity to engage in structured study of, and reflection upon, the application of educational theories, ideas and concepts to a range of international educational and community-based contexts.

The course has been designed for teachers and other education professionals working in a range of national and international settings, and is ideal if you're looking to develop your career by securing new posts or promotion in the area of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion.

You'll work with an international cohort of students representing multiple unique perspectives.

The course offers a unique combination of policy and practice-based perspectives on education, and the area of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in education, and is taught by outstanding, world-leading researchers who focus on the realities of professional practice using the social sciences.

Course units are delivered through lectures, tutorials, group-work, case-based approaches, and enquiry-based learning. Comprehensive training is provided in the use of electronic resources.

We encourage both individual and co-operative learning and research and hope to foster an ethos of lifelong learning. We aim to build on the expertise of our students, many of whom are experienced teachers, and who bring with them a wealth of knowledge and practical experience from a wide range of different countries.

Student feedback is integral to our learning and teaching, and you will have the opportunity to contribute to the student experience as Student Representatives, as well as through informal conversations with the Programme Director and teaching team throughout the course.

Coursework and assessment

You will study four course units in each semester, six of which are core and two of which are optional.

The form of assessment varies by course unit. However, most involve a 3,000-word written assessment, which may be in the form of an essay, a critical review of literature, or a research report. Formative and summative feedback is provided.

The dissertation is the report of an empirical research project investigation of an aspect of education, and is 15,000 words in length.
