A chance to study a top UK Masters in China

The MA International Higher Education provides a unique opportunity to develop your professional expertise and knowledge in a key area of higher education. Drawing on Nottingham’s experience at the forefront of advances in international and transnational higher education over the past two decades, this course will strengthen your ability to contribute effectively to this rapidly developing field, based on analysis of research, policy and institutional strategies.

If you are keen to understand how to develop, implement and evaluate strategies for international and transnational higher education, how to develop and manage courses abroad, or how you or your organisation should relate to international students, then the MA International Higher Education is for you.

You will build on and analyse your own professional experience, and those of other participants from a range of international higher education backgrounds. You will investigate practices, policies and theories of higher education and its increasingly international role in contemporary global society. You will also draw on the expertise of staff from across the University of Nottingham with extensive knowledge and experience in international and transnational higher education, and who have made key contributions to the University's internationalisation.

The course aims to:

- provide opportunities for you to gain professionally-relevant knowledge, understanding and skills in international higher education
- offer a critical map of the field of higher education and how and why it is changing in the context of internationalisation and globalisation
- explore a range of issues, strategies and practices in the organisation, management, and administration of higher education institutions in the context of internationalisation and globalisation
- combine the perspectives of higher educational practitioners, policy makers, managers and researchers

The objectives of the course are that you will:

- be aware and understand the major themes, issues and debates in international and transnational higher education
-have explored the interface between policy, scholarly research and practice in relation to international and transnational higher education
- understand the continuities and discontinuities between policy, practice and research
- be prepared to develop, challenge and question policies, strategies, practice and research
- be confident in constructing arguments about international and transnational higher education based on evidence and theory
- be able to formulate and investigate significant research questions about international and transnational higher education

This course is taught by leading international scholars, academic leaders and managers who are based in the Centre for Research in Higher, Adult and Vocational Education, and across the University. It takes a case-based approach - topics for assignment work are determined by course participants, drawing upon their own interests and work in international/transnational higher education.

This course is professionally and intellectually valuable in its own right, but is also ideal preparation for a PhD in Higher Education.

Programme structure

The programme comprises four 30-credit modules and a 60-credit dissertation.

Module 1: Globalisation, higher education and society
Module 2: Internationalising higher education: institutional strategy and development
Module 3: Enhancing student experience in international higher education
Module 4: Shaping the future: An evidence-based approach to managing change in international higher education
The dissertation provides students with the opportunity to carry out an in-depth investigation of internationalisation within a particular function in a higher education institution. Development of the research skills students need to carry out this work are supported in various ways, building on their value for future professional practice.


This course is also available at our UK campus.
