The MA in Inclusive Education focuses upon the issues within education which concern the inclusion of learners and its implications. These include philosophical, ethical and legal aspects which impact on the conduct of education in different settings. The concept of inclusion is challenging and wide ranging: modules in this programme problematize the idea of inclusion by providing opportunities for students to engage critically with the policy and practice  of inclusive education. The modules combine direct academic teaching and study at Master’s level at the University to obtain the academic awards of PG Cert, PG Dip or Master’s in Inclusive Education.


The following modules are offered as part of the award:

Including Vulnerable Learners explores how inclusion is exercised in education settings and how students can become agents of change at work by acquiring a deeper understanding of the barriers to inclusion. Taught sessions provide an understanding of the ways in which vulnerability and learners’ additional needs impact on the climate of the classroom and the culture of a school or educational setting.

SEN and Inclusion: Autism Spectrum (Children) is designed for teachers, SENCOs and other professionals working with children and young people on the autism spectrum, and increasing their knowledge of the subject.

Identifying and Addressing Difficulties Learning Mathematics provides an introduction to the theory and practice of teaching learners with difficulties in learning mathematics.

English as an Additional Language (EAL) offers students the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills to make informed decisions about the learning and development of a child with English as an Additional Language (EAL).

Identifying and Supporting Learners with SpLD/Dyslexia provides an introduction to the theory and practice of teaching learners with SpLD/Dyslexia. The module explores causal theories, initial assessment and social/ emotional implications for learners.

You will also complete a final Dissertation.

Please note modules are subject to change.
