A shortcut to your goals is deciding on a Bachelor's or Master's programme based on university rankings according to subject such as World University Rankings in Education from Times Higher Education, QS World University Rankings for Education & Training, and Shanghai Ranking's Global Ranking of Academic Subjects in Education.
