Delve into education policy in a global context and get an understanding of domestic educational policy and its relationships with systems and procedures from around the world.
This specialisation combines academic study with the opportunity to experience international education systems firsthand. You will examine education systems from around the world to understand how other countries have responded to rapid social and economic change, and the challenges of globalisation.

Whether you are a teacher, education leader or policy maker, this specialisation will prepare you to move into education leadership roles, education policy reform and management, or other related areas.
Successful completion of this specialisation will enable you to:
- Develop an understanding of education policies and issues on a global scale
- Examine education and training policy development, leadership, implementation and review
- Expand your professional networks in Australia and overseas
