Course summary

This is your chance to make a real difference to the next generation of thinkers, makers and dreamers. Here, you’ll be shaping the lives of children and young people: developing theory from experienced education practitioners. And, crucially, you’ll be putting it into practice in the classroom. We offer routes to Qualified Teacher Status either through the Primary Teaching degree or our top-up course. Our courses give you the opportunity to specialise in a core subject of Maths, English or Science, using dynamic pedagogical methods taught by expert staff whose research spans a variety of educational areas. With us, you’ll get individual tutor support, a school-based mentor for your placements, a University tutor and a pedagogical specialist. We have guest lectures and visits from members of the local educational community – providing up-to-date perspectives on education – as well as opportunities to develop a background in special educational needs. We’ve got links with a range of educational institutions across the UK, in cities and in the country. This means that our courses all come with fantastic opportunities to put your learning into practice – giving you the kind of practical experience that future employers value. The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements. Official Team GB partners Did you know that the University of Hull is the official University Partner of Team GB? Our united belief is that anyone, with the right opportunities ahead and a dedicated team behind, can achieve extraordinary things. This is what our partnership with Team GB is built on. Extraordinary is in you – and we’ll help you find it. What does this mean for you? It means that whether you’re studying sports science, or marketing, or logistics, or healthcare, or engineering, you’ll be able to gain invaluable experience through this unique partnership. We are working with Team GB to create opportunities for volunteering and work experience, to get involved with meet-and-greet sessions with Olympians, host on-campus talks from guest speakers and so much more. Some of our students recently helped Team GB athletes get their kit ready to compete in preparation for the Minsk 2019 European Games. It’s an extraordinary partnership, and you won’t find it anywhere else. Find out more at hull.ac.uk/teamgb
