Course summary

Overview Do you want to make a difference in people’s lives through education? Our community engages with difference.

Throughout your studies you will explore local, national and international perspectives and delivery of education in all its forms. We value each student’s voice as a member of our inclusive and diverse community of unique lifelong learners. Students who successfully complete this course may apply to post graduate teacher training programmes. Key features
