Delve into education policy in a global context and get an understanding of domestic educational policy and its relationships with education systems and procedures from around the world. As the impact of globalisation on education policy and practice increases, the more relevant this global perspective becomes.
You will have the chance to participate in an international study visit (staff-led or independently organised) to explore the relationship between education and training systems and their provision.
Please note: This specialisation is available within the Master of Education, and is not a separate course. The regular Master of Education CRICOS code applies.
