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
