Course content

This brand new Masters invites you to study education in a global context, understanding the impact of globalisation on the world’s citizens and exploring the resulting cultural diversity, multiculturalism and economic benefits.

  • Unique in the North West, this new programme focuses on education in a local, national and global context as a catalyst for change
  • Study key, contemporary issues and enhance your learning with an international work placement
  • Learn from research-active staff who have extensive experience of international education and publish widely
  • Undertake research in an area of particular interest to you, supported by inspirational, multi-disciplinary staff

Available to study on a full or a part time basis, this course is taught via a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and workshops as well as online materials.

As with any Masters course, there is a strong emphasis on independent learning. A particular feature of this course is the opportunity to enhance your knowledge with an overseas work placement.

Work experience is fully integrated into the programme, both as a means of understanding more about different societies and to enable you to identify your own interests and develop your career.

From the moment you join the course you will be assigned a Personal Tutor who will be responsible for your academic and personal progress throughout the course. Other support is available via our Student Support Zones and libraries, which stay open in the evenings and at weekends during term time.

The course is based in the leafy suburb of Aigburth, at the IM Marsh Campus, about four miles from the city centre. The campus is known for its friendliness and strong sense of community.

As an LJMU student, however, you will also have access to our city centre libraries and learning resources.
