Master's-level courses in education and teaching are designed to meet the needs of those working – or wanting to work – in teaching, management, education and development contexts. We aim to provide courses that: Are grounded in research; recognise and build on prior education-related knowledge and experience; develop professionally relevant knowledge, skills and understanding; introduce new knowledge and research perspectives on educational issues; enable the acquisition of further qualifications that enhance your career prospects. This course has established its reputation over 3 decades and is highly regarded internationally. This innovative course links theory with research, policy and practice, local and global, and critically engages with the educational challenges of low- and middle-income countries. It adopts a multidisciplinary approach to analyse the complex educational issues of resource-constrained and/or rapidly expanding educational systems. Currently we expect to offer 4 specialisms in this course in Teachers: Policy and practice; curriculum learning and society; educational policy and planning; education in conflict and peace building.
