Education and Society

Thursday 5th -Sunday 8th December 2019

8:00am – 3.30pm

For Teachers pursuing their Masters programme through the University of Bath

The University of Bath, UK, in conjunction with Bangkok Patana School, offers an opportunity for qualified educators to participate in the University’s MA in Education programmes. The full MA programme comprises five taught units and a dissertation.  Each taught unit is followed by individual research and the submission of a 5000 word written assignment.

The next unit to be taught at the Bangkok Study Centre will be Education and Society. The unit, which is relevant to teachers of all age ranges, has a number of aims, including the following:

  • to engage students in the critical examination of key contemporary social theory concepts;
  • to prepare students to conduct theoretically informed research in the social sciences;
  • to link students’ personal research interests with a theoretical analysis of education.

The unit sessions will take place at Bangkok Patana School.

The fee for this 12 credit unit will be £1,265 payable in pounds sterling in advance. You may pay using a variety of methods (please see reverse side for details of payment methods).

An administrative charge (THB 4,000) will be levied locally to cover tutor costs, refreshments and other relevant costs, and this should be paid directly to Bangkok Patana School. Please contact Katherine Hume (kahu@patana.ac.th), for local information.

Important Reminder:

Please note that if a viable group size has not been reached once the deadline for applications has passed (24 October 2019) the unit may be cancelled or postponed. Please do not make any travel or accommodation arrangements until you receive confirmation that the unit is definitely going ahead.
