Course content

In this course you’ll explore the variety of perspectives on and approaches to education. You’ll critically analyse how different institutions, societies and cultures define the key concepts of education, what is considered valuable knowledge and how it is learned. You’ll aim to use the knowledge to consider how this affects learners and ideas that travel across cultural boundaries.

On this course you’ll have the opportunity to develop an understanding of critical reflection and how to employ independent learning strategies to enable you to evaluate and inform your professional practice. You’ll also have the opportunity to develop and deepen your knowledge and understanding of educational research and be able to use these skills in researching an aspect of global and comparative education for your dissertation.

A further key component is the ability to exchange and share learning with and from others; you’ll have ample opportunities to work with students from a wide range of disciplines and organisations.

The course is tailored around you. You can expand on your teaching and learning focus by choosing from a range of options to match your role, experience or organisation to help you progress as an informed, reflective and inspirational practitioner.

You’ll be taught by an outstanding team of teachers; in fact, we were ranked fourth in the Guardian Guide for Higher Education in 2018. You’ll also have access to our extensive professional and academic network which feeds directly into course design and delivery and to excellent facilities and specialist equipment.
