The University of Bath has opened its applications for MA International Education and Globalisation for the academic year 2024-25.
The course is designed for students wanting to work in the education sector but not necessarily in teaching. For example, those wanting to work in education policy and practice. The students will get an opportunity to learn how to critically evaluate theories, policies, practices, and research methodologies at the intersection of international education and globalization. They also develop transferable skills such as intercultural and interpersonal communication and designing and carrying out research projects.
Application Deadline: 30 June, 2024
The application deadline for overseas students is 30th June, 2024. The new session will commence in October 2024.
Candidates should typically have a Bachelor’s degree, in any subject, with a final overall result of at least First Class. However, due to the number of different grading scales in use, candidates should upload a copy of the grading scale used by their institution, along with their transcript, when they submit their application. They will be required to submit a personal statement with details about the relevance of their academic qualification for the course, an explanation as to why they want to pursue the course and they should outline their future aspirations. The English language requirements are a minimum of either a 6.5 IELTS score with no less than 6.0 in all components, a Pearson Test of English Academic score of 62 with no less than 59 in any element, or a TOEFL IBT score of 90 overall with a minimum of 21 in all 4 components. Students who have graduated within the last 5 years from an Indian university where the medium of instruction is English, and achieved at least 75% for English in their Indian 12th Standard examinations, may be able to submit evidence of this instead. Other accepted language qualifications are detailed on the University website.
Developed by the Department of Education the fees for this course are £26,500 for Indian students. Students pay a £1,000 deposit after receiving their offer, which is deducted from tuition fees when registering to start their course.
MA International Education and Globalisation graduates are well-placed to work in international schools, education-focused NGOs and UN organizations, educational charities, professional services staff in universities, or pursue further study with a Ph.D. or an EdD, both of which are also offered by the University of Bath.
