Summary

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.

**WHY THIS 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.
