Education in the UK and overseas is constantly changing. This makes it a fascinating field of study, with varied opportunities for employment when you graduate. The course examines a range of contemporary UK and international education systems with a specific focus on education as a business. It will build your awareness of business enterprise when it comes to education for both individuals and organisations, as you will consider approaches to management, organisational culture and behaviour, and marketing. Why Education?
- Emphasis on this course is placed on the political, social, technological and economic context of education, presenting theories related to these aspects so that you can critically understand education systems across the world.
- The course addresses the fast-changing educational environment, giving you the skills to make you responsive to those changes within a variety of educational settings.
- While you’re here, you’ll be able to take an optional work placement in your second year of study. It could be the ideal way to develop the skills that employers are looking for and gain useful contacts in the industry, whether this be in a teaching, administration or business role.
- You’ll have opportunity to make national and international comparisons, and analyse and solve problems related to education in a global context.
- In your final year, you will also have the chance to undertake an investigative project that will develop and enhance an educational organisation.
