Course summary

This degree has been designed to help prepare students to develop as digitally-trained educational professionals who are able to innovate, solve problems, and adapt to the changing demands of education. Students can gain practical experience that can be applied in the real world. They will have the chance to undertake work experience in every year of study where they will be able to work closely with peers and academic staff during personal tutorial sessions, as well as undertaking put-it-into-practice (PiiP) weeks. We encourage students to challenge themselves through problem-based throughout their studies. The course aims to provide an innovative environment and students will be able to explore new approaches to digital education and digital learning tools. Subject to annual approval, students will be given their own electronic device to use alongside School equipment including VR headsets, digital tablets, and content-recording tools (e.g. green screens and cameras) to ensure they are equipped for a variety of both digital and workplace contexts. Students will have the opportunity to learn about a wide range of topics, structured by the four pillars of education: history, sociology, psychology, and philosophy. They can select modules tailored to their interests, including special educational needs and disability (SEND) or studies of childhood, for example. As well as this grounding in education, they will receive dedicated core modules focused on digital learning and surrounding issues such as globalisation, social justice in education, and ethical practice.


For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.

Assessment method

The nature of assessment varies across the three levels of the course. Assessments at levels one and two focus on the acquisition and understanding of knowledge and skills. In contrast, the level three assessments place far greater emphasis on the ability to apply, analyse, and evaluate knowledge. Students assessment methods may include written essays, posters, discussion groups, poster presentations, case studies, and multimedia portfolios. We aim to assess students using a diverse range of methods as part of our Schools commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
