Our course is innovative and exciting, incorporating the very latest developments in the field of education studies. Whether you want to become a primary or secondary school teacher or influence and shape education policy, it will provide you with a fantastic foundation. You’ll learn from practising teachers and take an active role in important current debates on children’s education. At UEL, we’re embedded in a diverse and inclusive community in east London. This course reflects that, and you’ll be taught by an academic team that is representative of the wide multicultural variety of our student intake. Our course is strongly rooted in the real world, with plenty of opportunities to experience education in action in our community.
