Applications are now open and will close on 14 April 2014.

Monash is a research intensive university with an international focus, collaborating with many prestigious academic and business partners across the globe. The Master in Adult Education (Global) is a unique, innovative online coursework-only program, offered in collaboration with the University of British Columbia (Canada), Linkoping University (Sweden), and the University of the Western Cape (South Africa).
Students proceed through the two year, 72 credit program as a cohort drawn from the four participating institutions. Participants will work together in various intercontinental groupings, thereby developing strong cohort relationships. Instructors are drawn from the four partner universities. Cohort students will benefit from a truly international experience, engaging with instructional staff and students from four continents within both Northern and Southern hemispheres. Applicants should be internally motivated learners who are interested in cultural differences, communication styles, learning preferences and instructional approaches.
The program is designed so that those with full-time professional responsibilities can participate. The curriculum covers contemporary changes in work and learning; the role adult learning plays in understanding and responding to globalising forces and their impacts on workplaces, communities, economies and the environment; the forms of adult learning found in different cultural contexts and ways of supporting adult learning in conditions of global change. The program encourages the development of critical perspectives on adult learning and global change and how these are experienced and understood in different parts of the world. Students will draw on their own experience, engage in discussions and work on collaborative projects with students from other countries.
- Although the program is equivalent to 1.5 years of study, it is delivered along with the other universities in non-traditional semesters. Therefore, required courses in the program are sequenced so that all requirements can be completed in 24 months.
- All the requirements of the program are completed online; there is no requirement that students attend any meetings or courses on campus.
- Note that this is a non-thesis master's program. It is possible to build on this program in ways that will provide evidence of the ability to do research.
- As this course is offered in collaboration with northern hemisphere universities, it does not run in traditional Australian semesters and classes commence in August each year.
- You will need to submit your application by mid April to ensure that you enrol within the specified time.
