Awarded by: University of the West of England, Bristol

BA(Hons) Education and Technology is one of the first courses of its kind in the UK – offering something new in the field of learning and technology.

If you’re interested in the latest learning innovations, in using digital technology to enhance learning and development, or in exploring the ways games and media can support learning and teaching, this is a stand-out degree.

Design and make new learning tools yourself and learn to use technology to promote learning and enhance experiences in formal education settings, the cultural and creative sectors and wider industry.

Explore the theoretical and policy landscapes underpinning digital learning and develop your practical skills and employability by taking part in your own consultancy projects.

Tailor the degree to match your career ambitions through your final year research or consultancy project – setting you up with the skills and experience you need to get noticed by employers.

Technology-enhanced learning and development is a major growth area in all sectors. This degree will equip you for careers in a school, a creative or cultural organisation such a museum or art gallery – or for working in learning and development in a business context.

You could also progress onto a postgraduate teaching qualification, or other postgraduate study, such as a master’s in education, or childhood and culture.
