Course content

Equality of opportunity in education is an important, but often overlooked or misunderstood, aspect of an educationalist’s responsibilities. Education that is designed and delivered so that it is accessible to learners with specific needs can transform the lives of individuals and fundamentally change the opportunities available to them in wider society. The need for highly trained, passionate and creative educationalists with expertise in this field has never been greater.

Aimed at existing education professionals, this contemporary and stimulating programme of study provides opportunities to critically evaluate current national and international developments in the education sector. You’ll study the principles and theories that underpin best practice in inclusive education and consider the implications of this knowledge for your own practice.

We’ll encourage and guide you in formulating creative solutions to complex educational problems, especially those surrounding diversity in a multicultural society. You’ll also have the chance to develop enhanced key skills in line with your personal and professional development needs; for instance, team working and leadership, problem solving, communication, numeracy and ICT skills.

Information for international students

If English isn't your first language you'll also normally need IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent).
