Our BA (Hons) International Education course analyses both the national and international education systems and explores this in relation to the 4 ‘P’s; philosophy, pedagogy, policy and practice. You will gain an in-depth perspective of education systems from around the world as you look beyond the national picture. Viewing education through a variety of international lenses in this way enables you to become a global citizen committed to social justice. Exploring topics on a local, national and global scale, you’ll learn about education from all perspectives and understand how you can make a significant difference to the lives of others. You will study a range of important educational topics including social justice and contemporary issues in education, which will fully prepare you for your professional career within the sector. We also offer work-based placements in the second and third year that help you to contextualise theoretical learning and examine contemporary educational issues in society. You will have the opportunity to undertake work placement in your second and third years in a variety of educational settings or organisations, both in the UK and abroad. These placements help you to contextualise theoretical learning and examine contemporary educational issues in society.
You will take eight modules in each year of your course. Year One: All compulsory modules. Year Two: Six compulsory and two optional modules. Year Three: Four compulsory and four optional modules. Each set of optional modules contains specialist options in Education, SEND, and International Education. In your second and third year you will select modules that are pertinent to your degree route and future career pathway.
The key to a degree, and subsequent career, in education and teaching is communication. Therefore, there will be a range of methods to assess the knowledge, understanding and skills you will develop on the course. These will range from more traditional assessment methods such as essays, presentations, and examinations, to more education specific practices such as lesson plans, lesson commentaries and curriculum packs. There will also be a focus on your ability to function within a workplace setting, as well as a final independent project that will act a culmination of your three years of learning on the course.
