Description

Adult education has been recognised in Europe as a critical element in addressing challenges pertaining to employment, research and innovation, climate change and energy, education and combatting poverty. A concern about social inequality and a belief that adult educators can contribute to social change based on smart, sustainable and inclusive growth is the driving force behind the creation of the programme. **Academic contact: [email protected] Admissions enquiries: www.gla.ac.uk/enquirenow September start IntM: 24 months full-time** WHY THIS PROGRAMME This programme has been designed to maximise the learning outcomes through both student and staff mobility and is innovative in the interconnectedness of the curriculum. Its unique focus brings together the recognised strengths of all partners into a relevant degree which engages with and responds to key issues of our time, such as social inequality, migration and intercultural cooperation and collaboration. A distinctive feature of this programme is the connection between theory and practice, gained through focused placements and mobility periods between the partner universities. The programme aims to deliver a curriculum that enables people to work with adults effectively and competently in changing socially diverse contexts. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters Degree is awarded by a consortium comprising the University of Glasgow, the University of Malta, Tallinn University and the Open University of Cyprus. An array of academic conferences, workshops and other socio-cultural events involving all consortium partners will help to make your experience a truly rewarding one in terms of making lasting friendships and equipping you for a future professional career. PROGRAMME STRUCTURE The programme is taught over 24 months and includes three mobility periods. It has been designed so that you benefit from the specific expertise of each of the partners and have a short credit-bearing placement built into each of the mobility periods. Semster 1 courses will be delivered at the University of Glasgow. There is a pathway choice in semester 2 between the University of Malta (Critical issues, policy and curriculum) and Maynooth University (Community engamengt and education).

About this university

International students

Students travel from around the world to study at the university and its website has country-specific information available. The International Student Support Team is a dedicated advisory service to help students on a range of subjects including immigration, finding employment and dealing with financial matters. For those to whom English isn’t a first language there is also English language courses available through the University Language Centre who also provide language support during the length of study. Student life is organised differently at Glasgow than many universities meaning there isn’t a single student association but rather a number covering different areas. There are two separate student’s unions, dating from the times when one was for male students and the other for female, called the Glasgow University Union (GUU) and the Queen Margaret Union (QMU). There is also a Students Representative Council that is the legal body representing students’ interests in the university and in wider terms. The two unions organise a number of social and cultural groups and events including providing facilities for debating, dining, socialising and meeting rooms. Sports are handled by the Glasgow University Sports Association (GUSA) that operates both sports clubs as well as fitness classes and drop in sessions.
