The 2015 Special Educational Needs and Disability Code of Practice (DfE/DoH) specifies that all teachers must be seen as teachers of pupils with SEN and take responsibility for the progress of all learners in their class.With an estimated 20 per cent of our young people in school with special educational needs, it is important for teachers to have access to current research and to develop their understanding and confidence in this area.The MA in Special Educational Needs is designed to critically engage with current thinking and ideas about inclusive and specialist education.It will allow you to develop your knowledge of specific learning difficulties, and to become a reflective practitioner who is able to use research to inform your own practice. This course will give you a firm grounding in understanding a range of special needs across a variety of age groups. Subjects include autism, dyslexia, social and emotional mental health issues, inclusion and leadership in SEN.

Once in London the team will collect students from the airport and bring them to the campus them to their rooms. The Welcome Program is a popular series of events including social events and orientation programs. These cover everything from getting a bank account or registering with a doctor to finding the cheapest way to phone home and where to buy food. The student union offers representation, support and advice to all students at the university as well as organising activities, clubs and societies for outside the classroom. There are some fifty different clubs and societies available covering all aspects of life. These include sports, performing arts, interest groups as well as volunteering projects and those based around a specific culture or faith. Students can even apply to start their own societies when they and others share an interest not already covered by a group. Sports teams take part in the BUCS leagues against other colleges and universities and are managed by UEL Sports.
