Key features of the MLS programme are: Diversity of learning experiences designed to generate new knowledge; flexibility in tailoring an individual programme by selecting modules that are of direct use; exposure to the insights of senior figures from the world outside education; and availability of elective modules conducted at NIE for the upgrading of knowledge and skills of HODs.
