Overview

Combine the study of the skills and methods behind educating and teaching, with the beginner or post-GCSE level study of the French language.

The course is ideal for students who discontinued languages at school after year nine or GCSEs, or those who have no background in languages. Competence in a foreign language is useful for primary teaching and may provide a foundation for teaching secondary learners.

Career opportunities

The Education Studies BA (Hons) develops skills that are particularly useful for students who intend to build a career working with young children. While this is likely to mean employment in primary schools, it can also include nursery and other pre and after-school settings.
