Masud Siddiqui

PhD student, GTA- Education Studies

Before embarking on my PhD at Warwick, I worked as Research Officer at the Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education Bangladesh. My doctoral study explores how (and with what consequences) the secondary education policy and practice in Bangladesh is taking a Neoliberal turn as a result of the large-scale educational reforms prescribed and loan-financed by International Financial Organizations, e.g., the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank. Previously, I did my MEd in Educational Leadership and Management at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne.
