" I am absolutely delighted that I decided to take this MA and have found the work both challenging and enlightening in equal measures... I enjoy the mix of live clips, text and research links...

The currency of the information means that it is already feeding back into my daily job as Course Leader and I am able to contribute in an informed way to discussions surrounding Internationalisation. Overall I enjoy the relative freedom of planning my own workload and can just about fit it around my work/life balance."

The MA International Higher Education provides a unique opportunity to develop your professional expertise and knowledge in a key area of higher education. Drawing on Nottingham’s experience at the forefront of advances in international and transnational higher education over the past two decades, this course will strengthen your ability to contribute effectively to this rapidly developing field, based on analysis of research, policy and institutional strategies.

If you are keen to understand how to develop, implement and evaluate strategies for international and transnational higher education, how to develop and manage courses abroad, or how you or your organisation should relate to international students, then the MA International Higher Education is for you.

You will build on and analyse your own professional experience, and those of other participants from a range of international higher education backgrounds. You will investigate practices, policies and theories of higher education and its increasingly international role in contemporary global society.  You will also draw on the expertise of staff from across the University of Nottingham with extensive knowledge and experience in international and transnational higher education, and who have made key contributions to The University's internationalisation.

This course is also available at our UK campus.
