WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY
As this is a new course, we do not yet have student comments. However, we have placed here comments from two other full-time Masters courses, MA in Educational Research and the MA in Globalising Education: Policy and Practice:
"I know that there is a lot of interesting, important and high quality research being conducted by students on the master's programmes here and I'd put that down to the nature of the support we receive from the tutors and supervisors. Additionally, the mixture of students from different countries and academic and professional backgrounds, led to many critical conversations which fed in to our research projects. The master's course allowed me to pursue and develop my own educational research interests in an environment that was both critical and supportive."
"The staff are friendly and helpful. It has been fantastic to discuss research with those who are at the cutting edge of their field."
"The course has been very engaging. I feel that I have covered a lot of ground. The modules are proving a real help in terms of detailed overview and as a guide to further reading. The supportive approach of the tutors and the feel of the department is something that we, the students, have talked about and commented on. We acknowledged that this aspect was a deciding factor in choosing Sheffield to do MPhil/PhD work."
"I find the literature that supports the modules of great help, it is very clear and consolidates the lectures. The references are always a useful starting point for further reading. The delivery of the units with the modules is well organised and interesting as space is always made for discussion/debate and participation is actively encouraged. This helped greatly to clarify points."
`I studied part time and have already gained recognition in my work place for the additional expertise I can now apply.´
"The design of module 4 is very good, the teachers are very good. I learned a lot from this module."
"Every lecture in this module is very interesting. This module is a feast for our minds."
"Module 1 helps me deepen understanding about my position in a changing educational setting. It helps me to understand globalisation in a more concrete way."
"To discuss and learn about globalisation and English language with other students from different countries was very useful for me."
