To help them get most out of their education, children and adults with special needs need educators who understand the challenges they face – and how to overcome them.

This online masters programme seeks to equip you with a thorough understanding of the barriers to learning that face people with disabilities, and explores strategies for removing these barriers.

By considering local, national and international perspectives on inclusive and special education, the 100% online programme seeks to equip you with the knowledge and abilities to drive positive social change and make a difference in the lives of learners with disabilities.
