International Master Programme in Educational Research
Kort om programmet
The two-year International Master in Educational Research is based on varied and broad educational research at the Faculty of Education. The programme focuses on education and learning as individual, interactive and collective processes in various settings in society. The International Master in Educational Research will be taught in English, as required by the application criteria.
The IMER programme offers theoretical and practical understanding of
educational research. IMER teaching focuses on critical and empirical
analyses of educational institutions, processes, and management. Courses
in educational research methods and topical courses will put you in
contact with research-active academics and their research projects. You
will develop a scholarly understanding of central themes in
international educational research and you will gain useful experience
in reading, writing, undertaking and reporting on educational research.
You will complete the programme by undertaking a 30hp (higher
education credits) research project of your own choosing and design, on
any topic in education. You will graduate from IMER with a Master degree
in education, with specialisation in educational research.
As an IMER student you will join a small but vibrant international
group of students. No more than 30 new students from around the world
can join the programme each year. The IMER team of academic staff is
itself internationally diverse. While some tutors are Swedish, other
tutors have come to Sweden from Australia, China, England, Ethiopia,
Germany, Poland, or the Netherlands. IMER staff can therefore draw from
diverse international teaching and research experience. Tutors work well
with the students and with each other as colleagues and have a strong
team commitment to the IMER programme.
