Start or progress a career in education with this research-focused top-up degree in education studies. Our top-up degree in education studies is aimed at students interested in developing their current Level 5 qualification, such as a foundation degree, to a Bachelor's degree in education. The course prepares you for a range of careers in education, including work as a teaching assistant, teaching in further education, and roles in education administration and youth work. Although much of the course is lecture-based, your tutors will encourage debate, discussion and analysis and help you develop your practical skills. By the end of your degree, you should understand the key elements of education studies and the importance of learning and teaching in the context of wider communities and society. The course is offered by one of the university's partner colleges: Nescot, in Epsom, Surrey.
All degree courses are made up of modules – individual units of study on different topics. Some modules are compulsory; others can be chosen from a list of options. Our website has full details of your degree structures, module content, and how each module is assessed. The direct link to this course on our website, can be found at the bottom of this page.
Students are assessed through a combination of course work, exams and practical assessment where relevant. You can view more information about how each module on this course is assessed within our 'What you will study' section. Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assignments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
