New Online Masters Programme for Teachers in International Schools


Are you interested in improving your skills in teaching about global issues?

Do your students want to know more about how to engage with global topics and concerns?

Do you have an interest in research in areas such as education for sustainability, global learning and global citizenship? 

The Institute of Education - UCL's Faculty of Education and Society (London) – is now offering the MA Global Learninga unique online programme to support anyone interested in how education responds to and promotes learning about global issues, such as sustainability, climate change and global citizenship.  This programme provides participants with skills and knowledge to run educational initiatives such as embedding global and sustainability themes into the curriculum within their institution, or helping schools achieve school awards or run international partnerships. It is particularly suitable for teachers interested in helping their pupils engage with global issues, and people working with NGOs to promote approaches to education that reflect these issues, or those working in education policy. Teachers who apply who have recently qualified in the UK may be able to use some of the M-level credits they gained at the end of their PGCE as partial credit. 

Applications close on 13 May 2022.  If you are interested in developing your skills in preparing your learners for living in a world of increasingly complex global challenges, then please consider applying. You can study full-time over a year, or part-time over 2-5 years.  

You can find out more about the MA here.  Feel free to contact the Programme Leader, Dr Clare Bentall (, if you have any questions about the programme.
