We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Adult Education Studies examine processes for improving lifelong learning and opportunities for people returning to education as mature students. This includes investigation of policy and governance, curriculum standards, and group learning procedures.
Courses range from taught MA and MEd (Master of Education) degrees, to research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Education or Business Studies.
Courses in this field equip you with the knowledge and ability to improve professional practise in the lifelong learning sector, across a range of institutions and corporations. Opportunities are available for you to specialise in areas such as special needs education, community development and educational leadership.
You may examine the historical backgrounds of the sector and learn how these have shaped current initiatives in the development of educative techniques for adult learners. Consideration is also given to funding and legislation, and economics of the sector - particularly regarding public and private institutions and corporations.
Careers are highly varied. They may include charity work with local communities, social work, roles within public policy and positions in local government, or even adult teaching.
