The EFI Education Futures programme is designed to respond to the need for creative, critical and experimental thinking across education in schools, universities and colleges, and learning within communities, industries and organisations. Some of the issues you will explore include mobility, politics, environmental change, culture, social justice and how data-driven systems for managing and understanding the world influence learning and education.
You will explore the ways that knowledge, culture and skills are produced and reproduced, how people, organisations and systems learn, and how this influences global challenges and change. Your studies on this programme will support you to think ambitiously about the future of education across all sectors, gain vital data and creative skills to support your future career, and apply innovative methods to building a strong future for education and learning.
Online. On campus. Fusion.
This programme is available full-time over one year, or part-time over two or three years. You can register for a full MSc, a Postgraduate Diploma or Postgraduate Certificate.
Our teaching model allows students to choose to study either online or on-campus at the level of each individual course they take. The only exceptions are international students coming to Edinburgh on a study visa, who are required to take all their courses on-campus due to immigration restrictions.
If you are planning to study mostly or completely on-campus follow the ‘Find out more and apply to study on-campus’ link below. For those planning to to study mostly online, follow the ‘Find out more about online study’ link.
All students – with the exception of those on study visas – will be able to combine modes once they begin their studies at EFI.
“Thanks for such a brilliant course – it’s been fantastic! I’ve got a lot out of it and have really enjoyed the readings, the conference, and finding that a lot of topics are resonating in a lot of my work.”

“I can’t recommend this course highly enough. It has encouraged me to look at my teaching practice and also the strategic direction of my faculty. The teaching and support was excellent. I was worried about doing the course totally online but it was a great experience.”
