    Hello everyone!

    I'm new to the site and not entirely sure I'm posting in the right place, but I'm sure I'll soon find out.

    I've just returned to the UK from China, where I was working as an English teacher. Before leaving to pursue this last year, I was working as a HLTA in a primary school in London.

    I would like to return to Asia (hopefully Hong Kong, Beijing or Singapore) to study Special Education, but I'm not sure the best way to go about it.

    I don't have a strong educational background, as I left school very young. All of my qualifications I studied on the job in my previous school.

    Any advice is very much appreciated. I'm particularly seeking a specialist agency who may be able to advise me on the best way to achieve my goals.

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post

    Why? Presumably it would be cheaper and easier to study in the UK?

    Yes, it would. I just personally prefer to live in Asia, as I've spent some time over there.

    In the long term I want to be involved in pushing Special Education in countries where it isn't such a focus, as it isn't currently in Asia.

    Unless you have a lot of money then studying in Asia just isn't an option. Be realistic, get qualified in the UK and then move aboard - international schools often require British/American qualifications anyway.

    Have you looked at the University of Nottingham Malaysia campus? Their education degrees offer modules in Special Education, and if you can sort out the finance side of things, it might offer you the best of both Worlds.
