Course summary

Education and learning in all its forms has the power to enable individuals, communities, institutions and society to change and transform. The BA Education Studies is an innovative programme, which offers opportunities to tailor your degree towards a specific career interest should you wish. Alongside the central programme there are three optional pathways, Youth Work and Community Development (YWCD), Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion (SENDI) with the additional opportunity to create a bespoke programme from the available modules. This critical study of educational processes, systems and approaches is situated within cultural, societal and political contexts. You will be engaged with learning spaces and places in and beyond formal educational settings, in an approach that will challenge your assumptions of what education is and where it takes place. Through engagement with real-world experiences and by examining contemporary issues, you will be equipped with the skills required to be agents of change in a complex and ever evolving educational landscape. The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements.
