    The MSc Education (Higher Education) at Oxford University provides a broad introduction into the complex field of theories and practice in higher education globally.

    The increasing significance of university rankings and the growing range of international student exchange schemes, as well as public discussion of tuition fees and the ‘vocationalization’ of degree programmes, are just some of the current issues within higher education in many countries.

    The Masters provides students with the possibility to engage not only with the issues outlined, but also with a wide range of stimulating topics surrounding universities and colleges.

    It is aimed at future leaders in the field – academics, policy-makers, researchers and managers. The course provides a strong foundation for:

    • using research to analyse and evaluate current structures and future reforms of higher education in different international contexts
    • developing higher education provision, curricula and learning programmes to meet a range of local and international needs
    • understanding the economic impacts of higher education and their implications for policy making
    • analysing transitions of higher education graduates into the labour market and further studies
    • conducting doctoral, post-doctoral and professional research

    The Department of Education offers a challenging but supportive atmosphere for conducting graduate studies. The course is run by the Department of Education but also draws on the expertise of colleagues at the Oxford Learning Institute and elsewhere within the University.

    Course sessions consist of a combination of seminars, lectures and collaborative course work. These sessions take place three mornings a week. In addition:

    • you will have the opportunity to work together with your course colleagues on selected higher education topics and problems
    • you will reflect on your own higher education experience, and on the University of Oxford as your new educational context
    • you will be able to select the focus for your MSc dissertation from a range of relevant international higher education contexts
    • you will have one-to-one meetings with your dissertation supervisor on a regular basis to discuss your progress and the design of your own research study
    • you will spend extended time in your chosen research setting during the third term in order to carry out fieldwork for your dissertation
    • you will be assessed through a combination of examinations, dissertation and course-work.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
