You should be prepared for study at postgraduate level and have the minimum of a bachelors degree (in any subject) from a UK University or an equivalent professional qualification. We warmly welcome applications from students who have an undergraduate degree level qualification from universities outside the UK and which is deemed equivalent to a UK higher education degree.
We’ve designed this Stage 2 module to follow the Stage 1 module, Addressing inequality and difference in educational practice (EE814). To study, you must have passed EE814 or one of the following modules:
- Educational leadership: agency, professional learning and change (EE811)
- Applied linguistics and English language (EE817)
- Learning and teaching: educating the next generation (EE830)
Your spoken and written English must be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 7 under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
You do not need to be employed in an educational setting to study this module. However, it is important that you have some experience of engaging or working with learners, children or young people as our pathway disciplines (Childhood and Youth Studies, Learning and Teaching, Inclusive Practice, Applied Linguistics, and Leadership and Management) are all explored through the lens of education. Therefore you will need to be able to apply your learning to an educational setting with which you are familiar: this could be as a parent/carer, a volunteer or a learner yourself.
You need to be able to spend approximately 12-15 hours per week studying for this module.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
