Course content

Adult education has been recognised in Europe as a critical element in addressing challenges pertaining to employment, research and innovation, climate change and energy, education and combatting poverty. A concern about social inequality and a belief that adult educators can contribute to social change based on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth is the driving force behind the creation of the programme.

  • This programme has been designed to maximise the learning outcomes through both student and staff mobility and is innovative in the interconnectedness of the curriculum.
  • Its unique focus brings together the recognised strengths of all partners into a relevant degree which engages with and responds to key issues of our time, such as social inequality, migration and intercultural cooperation and collaboration.
  • A distinctive feature of this programme is the connection between theory and practice, gained through focused placements and mobility periods between the partner universities.
  • The programme aims to deliver a curriculum that enables people to work with adults effectively and competently in changing socially diverse contexts.
  • The Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree is awarded by a consortium comprising the University of Glasgow, the University of Malta, Tallinn University and the Open University of Cyprus.
  • An array of academic conferences, workshops and other socio-cultural events involving all consortium partners will help to make your experience a truly rewarding one in terms of making lasting friendships and equipping you for a future professional career.
