Birmingham City University
The programme is intended to provide a full-time route for those wishing to study international education at postgraduate level. Modules are not specific to 1 phase of education, so they are relevant to those interested in school, college, university or training settings. A teaching qualification is not necessary, nor is an intention to become a teacher. The programme is appropriate for anyone with an interest in education and it could form the basis for a career in many education and training settings. The MA International Education will draw from the UK education system, but comparative aspects will be incorporated from a range international contexts. Participants will have the opportunity to attend our evening programme for enrichment purposes should they wish.
Applicants should have a degree or equivalent qualification, or professional experience that equates to degree level. All suitably-qualified candidates are normally interviewed, though this can take place by phone if necessary. Selection is based on the ability to benefit from and contribute to the course of study. Exemption from some modules may be granted for appropriate prior learning. We welcome applications from mature students and from members of communities traditionally under-represented in higher education.
Creating and sustaining diverse learning cultures; international perspectives on educational analysis and improvement planning; module 3: international perspectives on leading and managing educational innovation; using research to inform education practice; dissertation.
Assessment is by coursework only and participants need to demonstrate an ability to carry out in-depth critical analysis, effective research skills, critically evaluate research methodologies, have an enhanced knowledge and understanding of education and training in an international context and be able to critically evaluate their findings in relation to the academic literature.
