ENGAGE IN MEANINGFUL EDUCATIONAL BREAKTHROUGHS AS A RESEARCHER, DESIGNER, OR CONSULTANT.
Are you fascinated by how people of all ages acquire new knowledge and skills, whether they are school kids, talented employees, or leaders? Are you eager to understand and harness the impact of technology on 21st century learning and personal development? Do you see yourself engaging in meaningful educational breakthroughs as a researcher, a designer, or a consultant? Then the one-year English-taught Master's programme in Educational Science and Technology (EST) at the University of Twente may be the perfect choice for you.
The EST Master’s programme centres on three specific sets of competencies you will not find in other similar programmes. You can become a researcher, an educational designer, a consultant – or merge all three into your own personal career path. These three roles, combined with our strong focus on technology and your choice between two key fields of work – Education Design & Effectiveness and Human Resource Development – makes this a one-of-a-kind programme. In fact, the UT is among the world’s top 10 universities in the field of learning sciences.
We also offer a two-year double Master’s degree in Learning Sciences and Technology in collaboration with Germany’s LMU Munich University. Learn more about the double degree.
If you’re fascinated by learning, but you do not necessarily dream of becoming a teacher, this degree offers exciting career opportunities. You might become a Corporate Trainer, an Innovation Manager, a Learning & Development Project Manager with an international non-governmental organisation, a researcher specialised in child learning, an E-learning Multimedia Consultant and Designer, or a policymaker or advisor with the Ministry of Education or another governmental or educational body. Whichever path you choose, this degree will help you stand out as a specialist in 21st-century learning and development.
