    The MA offers students the opportunity to extend and deepen their understanding of concepts, theories and issues related to international development, education and sustainable ways of promoting health, wellbeing and social justice

    Students will:

    • build on their existing knowledge to develop new understandings of key concepts and issues in education, health promotion and international development
    • appraise and evaluate current policy and practice through evidence-informed analysis
    • draw connections between distinct academic disciplines with regard to the promotion of wellbeing and social justice,
    • investigate and propose sustainable ways of working and,
    • through conducting a small-scale research study, apply what they have learned to create personally and professionally relevant new knowledge of the field.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

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

    Core modules

    • Education and International Development: Concepts, Theories and Issues
    • Promoting Health and Wellbeing: Planning, Practice and Participation

    Optional modules

    A range of optional modules from across UCL Institute of Education (IOE) Master's-level offering are available, including:

    • Education, Conflict and Fragility
    • Education and Development in Asia
    • Education and Muslim Communities
    • Planning for Education and Development
    • Gender, Education and Development
    • Gender, Sexuality and Education
    • Learners, Learning and Teaching in the Context of Education for All
    • Children's Rights in Practice
    • Theories of Childhood and Society
    • Understanding Education Research

    We are keen to encourage students to select modules from across the IOE - including those related to education technology, effective learning, social policy, art education. Please discuss your optional module choices with your personal tutor so that you can build a modular programme relevant to your professional development in the field.


    All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of up to 20,000 words or a report of 10,000 words

    Teaching and learning

    The programme is taught through a combination of lectures, participatory and interactive groupwork, online learning and individual tutorials. Assessment is through coursework, taking the form of 5,000 word assignments or equivalent, such as a 3,500-word project proposal + 1,500 word conceptual framework. The small-scale research study is assessed by way of a 20,000-word dissertation or 10,000-word report


    Fieldwork is not a compulsory part of the programme. However, students are encouraged to draw from their professional or voluntary experience as well as the ideas encountered during the programme to write critically and cogently for different audiences. The small-scale research study usually takes the form of a combination of desk-based research (a literature review) and fieldwork.



    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.


    A minimum of a second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard is required, normally in social science, education or nursing - but a range of undergraduate programmes are excepted (including arts and humanities if the applicant can demonstrare an interest in and understanding of health promotion in their personal statement). In addition some appropriate experience in a low or middle-income country (a minimum of one month) is normally a condition of entry.
