The Educational Planning, Economics and International Development MA will provide students with the relevant knowledge, understanding and skills to work in educational planning, policy, management and administration in the context of international development. The programme focuses on issues affecting low and middle income contexts.

This programme provides students with an opportunity to identify the interconnections between society and the economy, and the implications for educational planning, whilst applying economic principles to educational planning issues. It will also provide the opportunity to critique the ways in which economic analysis and evidence are applied to education policy issues, giving students an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches to educational planning in low and middle income contexts.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of three core modules (90 credits), one optional module (usually 30 credits or two modules at 15 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits), or two optional modules (60 credits) and a report (30 credits).

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