The International Master in Adult Education for Social Change (IMAESC) is an Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree programme. IMAESC is a 24 month full-time programme with three mandatory mobility periods and an optional Summer School. IMAESC has been designed to maximise the learning outcomes through both student and staff mobility and is innovative in the interconnectedness of the curriculum. Graduates will receive the official degree of International Master in Adult Education for Social Change jointly from the University of Glasgow, the University of Malta, the Open University of Cyprus and Tallinn University.
The programme has a work-based learning placement built into each of the European Union mobility periods. The placements are designed to provide a depth and breadth of experience across three European contexts (Scotland, Malta, Estonia) as well the option for a non-European cultural experience in Malaysia.
The first placement at the University of Glasgow will focus on adult learning and 'teaching in the context of community regeneration'. The second at the University of Malta will allow students to gain experience in teaching English to migrants 'teaching English to migrants in times of austerity', using migrant destinations in Europe as backdrop to learning. The third placement at Tallinn University will centre on two themes: 'professionalization of adult education' and 'recognition of prior learning'.
The development of research skills is supported by all partners throughout the programme culminating in a specialized research dissertation.
Entry requirements for postgraduate taught programmes are a 2.1 Honours degree or equivalent qualification (for example, GPA 3.0 or above) in a relevant subject.International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
