Course content

Ideal as an advanced study of the intellectual, ethical and cultural processes of education, this programme also gives you the chance to reflect on – and build on – your own professional development.

Through strategically designed core courses and a wide range of options, this programme allows you to focus your studies on particular areas of interest and relevance to your career aims.

With guidance from our staff (all leaders in the field) and in a lively and supportive student community, you will take part in social and philosophical reflection and debate, and critically analyse the themes that dominate today’s academic and policy communities.

You will take an in-depth approach to policy analysis, as well as exploring international and comparative perspectives on education and training.
