University of Birmingham – Scholarships Available 2022 – 2023 | How To Apply Now
The MA Education is intended for those who are interested in education in a variety of contexts and want to use cutting-edge research, theory, and practice to build a more equitable education system for a globalized world.
Those working in or interested in a career in education and education research will be interested in this degree.
The MA Education (non-pathway) route will draw on the primary research areas of the School of Education:
Education for Social Justice, International and Comparative Education, Disability, Inclusion, and Special Needs, and Education Leadership give you more options for tailoring your own program to your specific interests.
The selection of mandatory and elective modules allows you to tailor your program to your specific interests and career goals.
If you want more disciplinary specialization, we also have four specialist ‘pathways’ leading to an MA Education (named pathway):
- MA Education (Comparative and International Perspectives)
- MA Education (Inclusion and Disability)
- MA Education (Leadership)
- MA Education (Social Justice)
Please note that like most Masters programmes, this programme does not confer qualified teacher status (QTS).
The MA Education programme attracts students from a wide range of backgrounds and nationalities, and welcomes applications from international students.
The University of Birmingham, which has over 8,700 international students from approximately 150 countries, provides support throughout the course for those that are new to, or less experienced in, studying in a UK context.
