Educational Studies.
Psychology studies address all aspects of human behaviour and interaction and helps students to understand why and how we behave as we do. The strength of this subject is in its applied nature.

Education Studies modules consider all facets of how we learn and develop, as well as looking in detail at how education systems are organised, particularly the English system.

Alongside these subjects you will study the following core modules to develop your transferrable and employability skills.
