The Master of Education Policy (International) combines academic study with the opportunity to experience international education systems first-hand.

You will examine education systems from around the world to understand how other countries have responded to rapid social and economic change and the challenges of globalisation. This provides the context for an analysis of Australian education policies at a state and national levels.

Whether you are a teacher, an education leader or a policy maker, this program will help you bring knowledge of international education policy to your work, enriching your organisation and broadening your career choices.

The more globalisation impacts on education policy and practice, the more relevant this perspective becomes.

This course also offers you the chanceto join a study tour to selected countries, where you will probe the relationship between education and training systemsand their provision, as well as attend seminars presented by eminent scholars.
