The Education and International Development MA introduces the concepts of development and educational development, and enables students to assess the role of education in the development process by engaging critically with theory and research. It explores questions posed by social and economic divisions, sustainable development, and the impact of globalisation, and examines relevant contemporary policy issues, with a particular focus on low- and middle-income countries.


This programme provides students with the opportunity to develop a critical understanding of key aspects of theory, policy and practice in relation to education and international development, and skills and knowledge in research methods and analysis. Students benefit from being taught by renowned researchers of education and international development, as well as international guest speakers. Students will also meet and study alongside a diverse student group: our alumni are from more than 80 countries.


There will be opportunities for students to be introduced to a number of key international development organisations involved in education and learn more about the nature of their work, as well as to find out about professional development opportunities. In previous years, students have organised career development events and benefited from volunteering opportunities via the Students' Union UCL Volunteering Service.


Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.


The programme consists of one core module (30 credits), three optional modules (90 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits).The programme can be taken on campus, online (distance), or a combination of both (mixed mode).  Please select the relevant mode of study at point of application.  Distance and mixed mode options are not available to students applying for a Tier 4 visa.


Upon successful completion of 180 credits, you will be awarded a MA in Education and International Development.

Change the World Around You

 

UCL is a top-ranked university with life-changing research and a progressive approach to academia, making it different from the rest. At UCL, postgraduate students learn by doing—shaping the world around them with a hands-on approach. Innovators, industry disruptors, thinkers and magic-makers choose UCL to jump right into studies across hundreds of programmes.

Where novel thinking is nurtured and encouraged

UCL is a diverse community with the freedom to challenge, to question, and to think differently. Our community pursues academic excellence, breaks boundaries and makes a positive impact on real world problems.

An Academic Powerhouse

UCL is 10th in the world in the “QS World University Rankings 2020.”  There have been 30 Nobel laureates among its former staff and students; a winner in every decade since the Prize started.

World Leading Research University

At the very heart of UCL’s mission is our research. We were rated the top university in the UK for research strength in the last Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014). We offer over 675 postgraduate taught, research and initial teacher education programmes across a wide range of disciplines, and encourage our community to work across traditional subject boundaries. UCL's research-based teaching methodology means that research is integrated into many of our degrees and students have the opportunity to make an original contribution to their field of study. 

London’s Global University

UCL sits at the heart of one of the world’s most dynamic cities, meaning you are perfectly placed to take advantage of everything London has to offer. We were the first university in England to welcome women to university education, and the first university in England to welcome students of any religion or social background. UCL has 18,000 students from outside the UK, with over 150 countries represented, providing a truly global perspective.

Disruptive Thinking Since 1826

For nearly two centuries we’ve confronted humanity’s biggest issues, and today we continue our heritage of disruptive thinking. Through our research, many minds at UCL work together to improve lives and communities and create real world impact.
