To gain an award in the Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion route, you need to study both of the SEND-focused optional modules on offer at the time of your study and have your thesis focus on an aspect of SEND-related theory, research and/or practice.
This degree is ideal for teachers and people working in educational management who want to quickly progress their careers. The ability to specialise the content of the course offers opportunities in particular fields of education, such as Special Educational Needs.
The knowledge and skills you develop will also transfer to many other sectors, particularly education policy and government.
