About this program
MA Inclusive Education
Our MA Inclusive Education masters is a flexible course for anyone interested in critically exploring inclusive education. We offer a full-time route and a part-time route so you can study at a pace that suits you.
From early years practitioners, teachers and leaders in education, to staff in local health authorities, health services and aspiring researchers, our course appeals to a variety of backgrounds and professions. You’ll be joining a diverse and thriving community of postgraduate students from the UK and across the world.
Analyse key issues, significant debates and global concepts in the field of inclusive education. Reflect on your personal understandings of special educational needs and consider the relationship between educational values and the development of inclusive practice.
You will evaluate and learn to think with a range of theoretical frameworks to deepen your critical analysis. And you’ll explore how theory informs how we interpret and analyse key issues in education.
We aim to empower you to approach your own research with confidence. You’ll extend your understanding of research techniques to prepare you for completing your own dissertation. Throughout the project, you will have access to support from active researchers in our internationally renowned Educational and Social Research Institute(ESRI).
We’ve designed this postgraduate course to allow you to specialise and focus on areas of education that interest you. You can specialise by choosing an option unit based on work by world-class researchers in the Faculty of Education. Your option units may include topics such as literacy and language, educational philosophy, learning in informal settings, or international perspectives in education.
When you graduate, you’ll achieve a masters degree that highlights areas of your personal and professional interest.
***Please note that we are not currently accepting applications for this course, but please continue to check this page for updates as we are currently finalising our courses for 2023 entry. It is our hope to have this completed by late June or early July. We thank you for your understanding.***
Applicants study must have a first degree, postgraduate diploma or professional qualification recognised as equivalent to an undergraduate UK honours degree (at least a 2:2). Other qualifications or experience may be considered.
Note: If you have completed a PGCE within the last five years, you can normally join the masters with advanced standing, which usually 60 credits. This means you complete two taught units before progressing to dissertation.
With the agreement of the program leader, other relevant and recent level 7 qualifications may also permit advanced standing via recognition of prior learning; it is possible with the agreement of the program leader to incorporate recognition of prior experiential learning (eg relevant work experience). Further advice and guidance on this will be available after you enrol.

Postgraduate taught courses

Part-time fee: £1834 per 20 credits studied per year. Tuition fees will remain the same for each year of your course providing you complete it in the normal timeframe (no repeat years or breaks in study).
Many students who complete our courses intend to study at PhD level. If you’re considering pursuing a research degree (such as an MPhil, PhD or EdD) in education, this masters course is a good foundation towards that ambition. Each year, several of our current and former students win scholarships for further study or have articles published.
Our MA Inclusive Education course aims to progress your career in education and enhance your academic skills for further research ventures.
Through the course, you’ll develop critical thinking skills and gain the theoretical knowledge to question existing education practice, and how it could work in the future.
By choosing your own topics and option unit, our masters course aims to help you focus on your professional development and areas of interest – your priorities, targets and aspirations.
Our graduates have used our courses to help further careers, either in their current sector, or to make an informed leap into a different role or field of education. Many of our students have gone in to management and advisory positions related to inclusion and diversity in schools and other educational settings. Some have developed specialisms in areas of special educational needs, such as autism or dyslexia.
We encourage you to apply your new thinking to practice and carry these creative, innovative approaches forward. This helps you to develop your skills as a systematic, evidence-driven practitioner.
