    This MA is taught in Singapore at the Institute for Adult Learning. The programme aims to provide professionals with responsibility for managing, delivering or supporting lifelong learning with opportunities to develop their own analysis and practice and equip them with the knowledge and skills relating to leadership in their practice.

    Students gain understanding of the context for the emergence of lifelong learning, as well as its incorporation into policies for educational and professional development. They are also able to critically analyse adult learning policy at the national and organisational levels, and acquire the tools to analyse and plan their own professional development and that of others in their organisation.

    Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

    The programme comprises four core modules (120 creates) and a research dissertation (60 credits).

    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.


    program_requirements

    Applicants are normally expected to have a good first degree (at least an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas equivalent) with two or more years of relevant work experience. Outstanding applicants who do not meet these requirements can seek entry through the submission of a portfolio and qualifying work.
