What you will study

In the Master of Inclusive and Specialised Education you can select from a range of topics and minor programs of study to shape the degree according to your needs and interests. The course addresses all facets of inclusive and specialised education within multi-tiered systems of support, including:

  • evidence-based ‘universal’ practices to promote academic achievement, positive behaviour and wellbeing for all students;
  • more intensive, targeted supports for students at-risk or experiencing difficulties, when and how this support is needed; and
  • personalised programming for students with more complex, specialised needs.


“I had a nice relationship with all my lecturers. They were committed to helping you out with everything, especially if you showed that you cared about your work. Uni organised for me to go to Flinders Partners to work on software for innovation management. I was so pleased when they offered me a full-time position.”

Nadine Saadi // Flinders University student
