This programme is designed for participants who wish to combine modules from two SEN related programmes.
The ISEN programme is suitable for:
UK, European and overseas students
professionals in schools, further education, social services or health related roles who are interested in the education and needs of children or students with a range of special educational needs (SEN)
people who have completed a first degree and are attracted to study and gain knowledge about children and students with special educational needs
The programme utilises material for home study, tutorial and seminar groups, together with a university-based residential weekend in Birmingham. Our distance learning programme has a reputation for excellence both nationally and internationally.
Levels of Award
The level at which an individual is admitted to study on the programme will depend on their previous academic qualifications as well as their professional experience.
On this Distance Learning programme, students join an existing programme to focus on one area of special educational needs for each year of study.
The programmes which are currently available are:
Language, Literacies and Dyslexia (only available for PG Cert, PG Dip or MEd)
Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties
Multi-sensory Impairment (Deaf/blind)
Severe, Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties (this is a blended learning programme, consisting of both campus-based and distance learning elements)
