What will I learn?

What makes the MA Education (Special and Inclusive Education) at Worcester special?

Special and Inclusive Education shines a critical lens on potential barriers to learning and strategies to overcome them. It looks at historical and theoretical perspectives of ‘Inclusion’ and gives participants the opportunity to analyse current policy and practice.

Both of our SIE modules are aimed at participants with a particular interest in Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion.

Key features

Flexibility: The programme of study can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Modules are delivered at weekends, in the evenings and online to maximise accessibility and to allow students to retain their other professional and family commitments.

International and full-time route: This route meets the needs of professionals wishing to study and familiarise themselves with the UK educational environment alongside their own contrasting experience. The programme consists of two taught modules in each of the first two semesters and a Dissertation in the first half of the second year.

Assessment

The course provides opportunities to test understanding and learning informally through the completion of practice or ‘formative’ assignments.

Each module has one or more formal or ‘summative’ assessments which are graded and count towards the overall module grade. Assessment methods include a range of coursework assessments such as essays, reports, presentations and a final year dissertation. In negotiated learning modules students can design an investigation and a mode of assessment most suited to their project.
