Liverpool Hope University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This is a four year degree taught at our Hope Park campus. The Foundation Year aims to develop your skills so that after a year, you will be equipped with the necessary skills needed for studying the full BA Hons degree programme.
Disability Studies is an academic field that recognises disability is fundamental to all human lives. It acknowledges the wider history of oppression and discrimination experienced by disabled people and seeks to educate people to challenge those inequalities. Informed by this perspective, the Disability Studies in Education degree examines the relationship between disability and education at all life stages and in a wide range of educational contexts.
On this degree, you will undertake a critical exploration of disability and education in a wide range of contexts, from the ways in which compulsory education responds to the needs of disabled children, young people and adults, to the ways in which arts-based and cultural organisations work with disabled people and images of disability. You will have the opportunity to undertake a placement year. This will enable you to enhance your understanding of course themes and demonstrate your ability to work in a professional context.
