Course summary

Overview Our Education Studies degree will prepare you for a rewarding career in the education sector. You will explore how education influences and is influenced by key theories and debates, including whether education is socially just, how it is influenced by race, gender, social class, religion and culture and how education can be made more inclusive. The course will enable you to pursue a diverse range of roles including primary and secondary education, prison education, charity education, educational policy, coaching and mentoring and international development. It will also offer opportunities in learning support and supporting learners with special educational needs. Your course is assessed in a variety of ways – but we do not do exams. Each of the three years consists of a range of optional modules so you can tailor your subjects to your interests. You will also undertake your own research on an area of your interest enabling you to really go into depth in an area that you care most about. You can also choose to study a semester, or your 3rd year, internationally. Education Studies deals with the issues of the day and in all your studies, you'll apply your learning to real-world issues. These will include how best to tackle bullying, how we can better include underrepresented or marginalised groups, how education works across the world and our course also considers the climate emergency. Whatever the main news of the day, we consider how it intersects with Education. Key features
