I‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ need to prepare a personal statement (reason for applying) and complete two admissions written tasks for my application to MPhil in Education (Education, Globalisation and International Development). Regarding the personal statement: The word count for the personal statement requires a maximum of 1500 characters and ideally the personal statement should be around 450 words. The following are some descriptions of the programme. The MPhil is offered by the Faculty of Education as a full-time period of research and introduces students to research skills and specialist knowledge. Its main aims are: to examine the theoretical frameworks used in the study of education and its constituent disciplines; provide training in research methods appropriate to education; advance students’ capacity for professional reflection and judgment; cater for a range of specialists interested within the field of education or one of its constituent disciplines. Learning Outcomes By the end of the programme, students will have: a comprehensive understanding of research techniques, and a thorough knowledge of the literature applicable to their specific educational domain; demonstrated originality in the application of knowledge, together with a practical understanding of how research and enquiry are used to create and interpret knowledge in their field; shown abilities in the critical evaluation of current research and research techniques and methodologies; demonstrated self-direction and originality in tackling and solving problems, and acted autonomously in the planning and implementation of research. How is the course organised? Module 1: Perspectives on Globalisation and International Development in Education Module 2: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in Education Module 3: Transitions into and out of Education Module 4: Policy Approaches to Educational Quality Regarding the professional personal statement of MPhil in Education (Education, Globalisation and International Development), I can provide some ideas and directions to help you better personalize my personal statement. In the opening paragraph, you can use the issues facing education in China as a starting point to introduce the reason why I am applying for this prog‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ramme. For example, we could refer to the “double reduction” education policy that China introduced last year to bring out the issue of equality and development in education. The second paragraph is about the understanding of the curriculum and how it will help me in my career. After graduation, I intend to pursue a PhD and in the future I would very much like to work in the education sector in China. The third paragraph could describe the INSIDEOUT education company project that I conducted in a course. The fourth paragraph could present a paper I have written on International Cooperation of Universities in the Perspective of Education Globalisation. The layout of the last paragraph could be my future career plan and the huge support this programme could bring to my career development. I have included these three edited paragraphs in an Ideas for Personal Statement document and have uploaded them to the Additional Materials for your reference. The text I have provided so far is 400 words long, and I hope you find them useful. Regarding the two written assignments: write an essay of maximum 500 words (strict limit) addressing an example of a research idea that you may want to explore as part of the course and how you would like to go about it (for example which research question may you explore , what readings may you do, what methods might you use, etc.)? Please write this as an essay rather than as a research proposal. I have uploaded an overview of the program, including information on the curriculum to the “additional materials”. short critical analysis (500 words strict limit) of the following research article. Please comment particularly on the research methodology.
