Our course goes beyond just teaching and learning to prepare you for a career in education and beyond.
We blend theory and practice to extend and apply your knowledge, skills and understanding of education studies throughout your time with us. You’ll be taught by experienced academics who are research leaders across areas of diversity, child development, multilingualism and education. This course draws from a range of disciplines so you’ll learn about subjects such as history, sociology, law, and philosophy, and how they relate to education.
A degree in education can open varied career avenues like education policy, management and research, charities, to name just a few.
We're in the top 250 in the world for Education (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019).
We strongly encourage you to develop your employability skills throughout the course and this is often built into the modules from the start. These skills, sometimes referred to as soft skills, include reflection, professional development and team work.
You’ll receive a Placement Planning Pack to help with structuring and planning for work experience, ensuring you get the most out of it. Additionally, you’ll undertake a practitioner-based module, set within a workplace, and build a digital portfolio that showcases the development of your knowledge and skills throughout the course. The course’s timetable is specifically arranged to give you the opportunity to arrange voluntary or paid work experience, or shorter placements. Typically, graduates go on to careers in educational settings, training programmes, and charities. It's also a route into a teaching role through a Primary or Senior PGCE.
While you’re learning, you’ll be matched with a Personal Tutor directly related to your course. You’ll also get support from our Student Learning and Graduate Academic Assistants, who have experience in your subject area.
Whatever your career goals, our course aims to support what you want to do. Our links in the industry, along with your work placement, set you up for an exciting career in education.
