International Development and Education MA


Course Description

Course overview

The International Development and Education MA will give you a better understanding of the future of learning. The course will appeal to anyone concerned about development issues, government policy and the reduction of poverty using entrepreneurial ideas.

You'll be debating challenging questions such as: What is the future of learning in the 21st century?; How can we guarantee education for all across the developing world?; What is the future role of international agencies, national governments and the private sector in education?; Is the traditional model of schooling still fit for purpose?; What alternative solutions are available and what role will technology play in the future of learning?

The course is for graduates from education, information technology, economics, politics, geography or business backgrounds. In turn, our graduates go on to pursue careers in: education in developing countries; the global education industry; national governments; international aid agencies; non-governmental organisations and charities

Our teaching is informed by research conducted by the EG West Centre. It is the world's leading authority on the growth and development of affordable private schools serving low income communities across the developing world. Recent research has focused on post conflict countries such as South Sudan, Liberia and Sierra Leone and on the growth and expansion of chains of low cost private schools in different countries around the world.
