Course content

This programme designed with two distinct groups of participants in mind:
  • Those who wish to study a range of campus-based modules relating to ISEN
  • Those on distance learning modes who wish to combine modules from two programmes
The ISEN programme is suitable for:
  • UK, European and overseas students
  • professionals in schools, further education, social services or health related roles who are interested in the education and needs of children or students with a range of special educational needs (SEN)
  • people who have completed a first degree and are attracted to study and gain knowledge about children and students with special educational needs
The campus-based programme utilises lectures, seminars, tutorials, school visits, practical tasks and discussions. Campus-based lectures are given by academics who are leaders in research in the Special Educational Needs field.
The distance learning programme utilises material for home study, tutorial and seminar groups, together with university-based residential weekends in Birmingham. Our distance learning programme has a reputation for excellence both nationally and internationally.

Explore postgraduate study at Birmingham at one of our on-campus open days (Friday 13 November 2015 and Friday 4 March 2016). Register to attend at: www.birmingham.ac.uk/pgopendays
