Education - MA

Our innovative MA explores education from an international and multi-dimensional perspective, capitalising on our long-standing experience in education and world-class research, committed to transforming global educational theory and practice. You’ll examine contemporary educational issues, theory, practice and policy through economic, social, political and professional lenses, addressing topics like inclusion, inequality, professional identity, racism and gender in education. Helping you become a better, more informed educator, the MA will equip you with the skills and tools to pursue further research and work as a practitioner, mentor or leader in a wide variety of educational settings in the UK or overseas.

"The MA in Education program has provided me with academic prowess by which I can conduct educational research to inform my practices as a teacher. Now, I realise how education can be a vehicle that enables us to redress some injustices in society. What makes this program unique is its capacity to stimulate your thinking educationally because it poses searching questions beyond what we do in our schools."
