Module Aims and Assessment: Contextualising Education Globally

The module aims to provide students with the opportunity to:

  • Engage with fundamental questions concerning the aims and values of education and its relationship to society in different country contexts.
  • Develop skills in applying learning from academic disciplines such as economics and social policy to education systems in different countries.

On successful completion of this module, students will be able to:

  • Identify the main purposes and aims of the different parts of the education system and how they interrelate.
  • Understand the impact of political and economic choices on curriculum and policy in different country contexts.
  • Analyse education systems systematically
  • Evaluate education policy in an informed and systematic way
  • Use numerical data to interpret and generalise patterns in an education system.

The Contextualising Education Globally module brings together previous work on educational aims and practices as well as exploring the broader policy context of education. The independent research elements of the course will support you in preparing for your dissertation.

You will be given feedback verbally on your contributions to seminar sessions. This will usually be in the form of questioning to elicit further ideas from you and to support your thinking. Feedback of this nature is designed to develop your intellectual skills as well as provide reassurance and encouragement to develop your confidence and independence. Feedback will be given on directed activities – this will generally be verbal or short written comments. Directed tasks will usually be in the form of preparation for a session or follow-up after a session. The final session of the module will be 10 min tutorials.

Assignments should be submitted electronically via Moodle by 1pm on the appropriate date as stated in the Assessment section of Moodle.


Marking is anonymous so do not put your name or student number on your essay. Check your submission carefully before clicking 'Submit' as we cannot find anonymous essays in order for you to upload a new version if you make a mistake. 

All session materials and assessment guidance can be found on Moodle. 

You can find your reading list on the right hand side of the Module Moodle site or online at Search by the module name, module code or module coordinator to find your reading list. The list will show you the library availability, as well as link you directly through to electronic material (if available).

It is very important that you do at least the core reading every week. You will also need to do your own research based on the themes and countries which you choose to research. The readings on the list will provide a starting point for this. If you need further topic based materials, you might search by your topic and one of the following journals in the Advanced Search at

  • Journal of Education Policy
  • British Journal of Sociology of Education
  • Compare
  • Comparative Education
  • Comparative Education Review
  • Comparative Education Research
  • International Journal of Educational Development
  • Research in Comparative and International Education
