Overview

Our Education Studies degree will prepare you for a rewarding career in the education sector, working with children, young people or adults. The course will enable you to pursue a diverse range of roles including primary education, prison education, charity education, hospital education and international development. It will also offer opportunities in learning support and supporting learners with special educational needs.

Across the world from the UK to Africa, education is the bedrock upon which our societies are founded. The course will teach you about the development of modern education and how education differs across the world. You’ll also learn about education from diverse settings, from Forest Schools to the inner city, and from young minds to lifelong learning.

Our modules will teach you theories from a range of approaches, including political, historical, cultural, psychological and sociological aspects of education. You’ll apply these approaches to real-world issues, such as how best to tackle bullying and we are currently consulting with our students on ways that, together, we can teach about and respond to the climate emergency. Each of the three years consist of a wide range of optional modules so you can tailor your subjects to your interests.
