The MA Adult Literacy, Lifelong Learning and Development: International Perspectives is designed for those working in adult education and basic literacy – whether in policy, planning and evaluation roles or as teachers, NGO activists and literacy facilitators. Whilst many of our students will be working in countries of the global South, in Asia, Africa and South America, the course is also appropriate for those in the UK, US or Europe who are interested in developing a new perspective on their work.
