The MEd(International Education) offers in-depth insights into issues such as the processes and outcomes of globalisation in education, internationalising institutions and systems, and intercultural education.
Participants in the program are usually teachers and other professionals such as planners, officials and aid workers who are either currently employed or training for future employment in the field of international education.
During the course, which is available only by distance mode and is delivered entirely online through Sydney eLearning, candidates have the opportunity to apply the insights they gain to a topic of their choice, developing one or two small research essays through negotiations with an academic team member.
The University of Sydney has the strongest faculty of international education scholars in Australia and one of the strongest teams worldwide. All the academics attached to the program are actively engaged in researching the issues about which they teach.
