This programme will give you an unparalleled opportunity to study international education and globalisation, as they intersect, at master s level.
International education and globalisation are challenging and contested concepts; in this programme you will analyse the meaning, scope and dimensions of international education and globalisation (as they intersect). You will also consider relevant educational purposes, methods and approaches in international education. Importantly, you will engage in the critical analysis of the assumptions and evidence that underpin change and reform to policy and practice in international education.
The programme will provide cutting edge knowledge, skills and understandings at the intersection between the two fields of study so that you can make a significant future contribution to international education. For example, you will explore the implications of a shifting global educational landscape such as how to prepare learners for an increasingly connected and mobile global society.
