Specialisation overview

Overview

The Policy in a Global Context specialisation of the Master of Education allows you to delve into education policy in a global context and get an understanding of domestic educational policy and its relationships with education systems from around the world. As the impact of globalisation on education policy and practice increases, the more relevant this global perspective becomes. The specialisation combines academic study with the opportunity to experience international education systems first-hand.

Who is the Policy in a Global Context specialisation for?

This specialisation is for a wide range of education professionals. In particular, it will suit teachers or educators who are seeking a Master’s level qualification to support promotion and/or movement into education policy roles. It’s also ideal for school leaders seeking to better understand education policy and reform, plus those working in government or NGOs in policy roles.

International opportunities

If you opt for the elective Education Policy in Practice, you will have the chance to participate in an international study visit elective (staff-led or independently organised) to explore the relationship between education and training systems and their provision.
