Course content

Are you looking to get the edge in the world of education management? If so, our MA Education (Global Education Management) course is for you; it’s the only degree of its kind in the UK and is intended to meet the needs and changes the education system faces across the world.

What's covered in the course?

It is relevant to anyone interested in working in education settings ranging from early years to higher education and training working as a school administrator, bursar or in an associated management role.

The programme of study is practice-based focusing on developing an understanding of leadership and management in education and other contexts, personnel and human resource management, financial management including procurement and an understanding of education policy, practice and developments within the UK and other countries.

By studying on this course, you’ll be equipped with the leadership, development and management skills required to face current and future educational priorities. You’ll study alongside educational practitioners and researchers, giving you valuable insight and the skills that will help you stand out in the education sector. We’ll help you develop high-level research and communication abilities, as well as your motivation and confidence so you graduate with the attributes needed to succeed.

We ensure the course reflects the changes and issues the education sector faces on a daily basis, which means you’ll be given relevant and cutting-edge information. You’ll be trained to meet the future educational needs of children, young people and adult learners in complex and increasingly globalised contexts.
