Overview

What is education for? What is education like around the world? Does education equalise social inequalities? Where can learning happen? What is ‘learning’ in the first place? How do we learn through experiences? What problems in the world can education resolve? What is the role of the teacher? What should children know?

If you are motivated about addressing the questions above, then our education studies programme is just what you are looking for. On our programme you will be guided by expert tutors through multiple disciplines and fields such as technology, philosophy, history, sociology, psychology, outdoor and environmental learning, politics, economics and international education, in order to understand the many different ways you could address the questions above.

By joining our programme, you will develop critical reflection skills and gain multiple perspectives on educational issues. You’ll understand the ‘bigger picture’ of education by getting to the very heart of key ideas, practices and policies that may have influenced your learning journey and the education of people around you. The programme will enable you to build upon your existing values and beliefs about education and you’ll be challenged to think about education in new ways. We aim build on your existing curiosity, self-awareness, reflection, confidence and critical thinking skills to make a positive contribution to educational thought and practices.
