The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MSc Education (Higher Education) at the University of Oxford provides a broad introduction to the complex field of theories and practice in higher education globally. The increasing significance of university rankings, the growing range of international student exchange schemes and public discussion of the â??vocationalisationâ?? of degree programmes, are just some of the current issues within higher education in many countries. Debates about the benefits of higher education to graduates, employers and the state underpin considerations of student fees and how they should be funded. During this full-time course, students will have the opportunity to consider these and other complex issues that university and college leaders, higher education policy-makers and higher education researchers are addressing today. Teaching sessions will combine tutor input and class discussion, plus small group working. Course members study three core papers which consider national higher education systems and their economic impacts from theoretical, historical and empirical perspectives. Invited speakers will present their own recent research findings, ensuring that the course content reflects live debates and emerging understandings within the field of higher education policy. In addition to these three pathway-specific core papers, two core papers in research methods develop studentsâ?? understanding of key concepts and principles of educational research design and methodology, using quantitative and qualitative methods and data. Students benefit from the expertise available through the Qualitative Methods Hub and the Quantitative Methods Hub at the Department of Education. MSc Education students also choose one assessed option paper from a selection offered by academic staff across the department. This MSc is aimed at future leaders in the field â?? academics, policy-makers, researchers and managers. It is assessed through written assignments, a two-hour examination, and a research dissertation. Work towards this dissertation will be supported by practical sessions, that develop themes covered in the research design and methodology lectures, and one-to-one meetings with a supervisor throughout the course.
