At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. Education at Keele is distinctive because of its strong focus on contemporary issues in education and policy making. Studying Education means considering its relationship to the economy, its historical evolution, its impact on people’s life chances and identities, how education is organised, and how learners learn. You will study educational topics such as the nature of learning, the history of education, and educational policies and practices that aim to promote inclusion and social cohesion. Studying Education at Keele, either on its own or along with another subject, will help you explore the many ways that education is changing along with society. The course examines topics such as changing ideas about childhood, learning, digital technologies, citizenship, race, play, work, the political nature of schools, for instance, the impact of poverty on both the results and the experience of education. You will also have opportunities to explore these issues abroad by doing an International Year, which can lead to an enhanced degree title in ‘BA (Hons) in Education with International Year’. Our undergraduate Education programme sets you up well for further professional study to qualify in areas such as teaching, social work or the legal profession. The course opens up a range of opportunities in settings from pre-school to adult learning, as well as in a variety of other contexts, such as politics, the civil service, journalism or business. If you are thinking of travelling or working abroad after graduation, Keele’s Language Centre offers a variety of courses that may enable you to graduate with an enhanced degree with foreign language competency or an internationally recognised qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
