About

The Comparative Education programme offered at the University College London (UCL) provides an overview of the common controversies and contemporary debates in international and comparative education. We will engage in systematic analysis and comparison of education systems, processes and policies in many parts of the world.

Overview

The Comparative Education programme offered at the University College London (UCL) provides a rigorous multidisciplinary grounding in the comparative analysis of the relationship between education and society. 

Students are introduced to education policy and politics of international organisations, such as the OECD and the EU, and national governments in countries/regions such as the UK, Europe and Asia, discussing the effects education systems have on economic development, skill formation, and social inclusion.  

Careers

The MA Comparative Education will help you to develop key employability skills, which will make you attractive in both the public and private sector, e.g. international organisations, government departments, think tanks and consultancies, education businesses, and in research and teaching. We also offer an Mphil/PhD in Comparative Education (integrated route). 

We supervise across a broad range of areas within the comparative social sciences, comparative politics of education, and education development.
