Inclusive Education and Disability

This MA provides the opportunity to engage with theoretical perspectives and research in the field of inclusion and disability, both nationally and globally. The Masters award is relevant to both UK and international applicants and starts from the premise that terms such as inclusion, disability and special needs are contestable. Students are encouraged to critically engage in those social, political and global debates relating to the education of marginalised groups of children and young people. We also offer a part-time MA Inclusive Education and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) within our professional development programme. For information on fees for this course please see our online prospectus information.

Entry requirements

Applicants need to have an Honours degree, or a postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification recognised as being equivalent to a UK honours degree. Other qualifications or experience may be acceptable if students are able to demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills to a UK honours degree standard. International applicants need to demonstrate English Language requirements: IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 575, TOEFL computer-based 20. Award Leaders may interview applicants exceptionally where IELTS scores are very close to the overall average of 6.5, and where applicants can bring examples of their writing.
