Course Summary

About the course

This specialist education pathway seeks to investigate the complexities around the concept of inclusion. Study is focused on those who might experience marginalisation in society, particularly in educational contexts.

There is a strong emphasis on finding ways to develop inclusive curricula to meet the needs of all learners including for example, those defined as having special educational needs, travellers, those from challenging backgrounds and ethnic minorities.

MA in Education, Inclusion and Special Needs can be studied one year full-time, or two years part-time.

What you'll study

You may leave the programme after stage 1 with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education or after stage 2 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education if you have earned sufficient credits.

Future prospects

Our Masters students explore a range of current educational practice, looking at key issues and policy.

Graduates leave with reflective and practical skills and the knowledge they need to contribute to their chosen learning community.


Engage with literature about a contested issue within inclusive education. You'll develop your own argument, backed up with evidence, as to your position on this. Linking this argument to a particular context, you'll make recommendations for the development of inclusive practices.
