MASTER OF ARTS IN EDUCATION
ABOUT FAIRVIEW AND THE MASTERS PROGRAMME
Nestled contentedly within the tropical outskirts of the capital city is Fairview International School Kuala Lumpur, the first International Baccalaureate (IB) World School in Malaysia to offer a continuum of three challenging IB programmes to pupils aged 3 to 19 from over 60 countries.
Established in 1978, Fairview was founded by a group of like-minded parents seeking greater educational opportunities for their children. From humble beginnings and only a handful of students, Fairview International School is now a home away from home for over 2000 students across four campuses in Malaysia; Kuala Lumpur, Penang, Johor Bahru and Subang Jaya. Adding to this remarkable achievement Fairview is expanding its educational philosophy worldwide by building a global network of 15 schools located in Asia, Australia and the UK by 2015.
Since 2012, Fairview International School has offered scholarships for a three-year full-time, work based Masters programme with on-site placements in a network of Fairview International Schools. The Master of Arts in Education is taught in collaboration withSheffield Hallam University, UK.
Whilst learning about the standards and practices of IB education, students will simultaneously apply their understanding and knowledge to actual practical teaching in
an IB World School. This programsme builds upon the key aspects of educational research theory covered by Sheffield Hallam University. The student will assimilate enquiry based research via the IB framework, with a significant proportion of investigation into the students own teaching in Fairview International School.
This dual programme ensures that sound theoretical and practical skills are combined to maximum effect, and is the foundation upon which this Masters has been developed.
