The School of Education will be taking a group of graduate students involved in leadership studies to London. This visit will offer students the chance to visit schools, colleges, and universities in the London area and beyond whilst experiencing the culture and climate of a European capital city.
This visit enables students to investigate specific aspects of their graduate research in an international setting and to draw comparisons between the work in which they are engaged in their own institutions and those in a different country. In London, students will be given an overview of the English educational system, its successes and challenges by those involved in putting policy into practice at the Department of Education in Whitehall and by those researching educational issues at University College London.
