The last intake to this course was in 2017. From 2018, new student enrolments in Education Policy at the Melbourne Graduate School of Education will be through the Policy in a Global Context specialisation in the Master of Education (MC-ED). There will be no further intakes to the Master of Education Policy (International).
One of the most significant trends in policy development around the world has been the restructuring of education systems in the light of near-universal participation at the secondary level, the growing demand to accommodate vocational education and training in schools and the effects of globalisation on pedagogy and curriculum. It is only through an understanding of these responses and the contexts in which they have occurred that Australian policy formation can occur at the level of international best practice. This course aims to place the analysis of Australian education policy in this broader national and international context of best practice, and will provide a targeted program of study in three international systems. There are no other courses in Australia offering a similar combination of study and overseas experience in this field and very few internationally with a comparative international focus.
