Education has an extraordinary impact on people’s lives. Do you want to work in education, but not be tied to a classroom? Our course will give you the skills to make a difference in a wide range of education careers.

What are the key barriers to becoming a life-long learner? How do people learn best? How do social issues impact on our education system? These and many more questions are explored throughout our new Education degree which examines the rich perspectives of the interdisciplinary framework.

Studying our BA (Hons) Education course means you’ll get to the heart of a range of both historical and contemporary issues which shape the current UK education system. You’ll unpick issues of social justice, inclusion, diversity and equality in education, and consider the impact of social policy in the management of these issues. By the end of our course, you’ll have developed your ability to critically reflect on these hot topics, and will have a broad and balanced view supported by theoretical knowledge and research evidence.

We’re mindful that education extends well beyond the classroom context. Maybe you’re a budding entrepreneur who dreams of running your own education enterprise, or maybe you’re destined to make a difference in the charity sector? Our holistic approach means you’ll explore both learning inside and outside of the classroom, preparing you to make a difference in a wide range of education careers.

Study flexibly with us, full or part-time and we’ll equip you with the knowledge and skills to push the boundaries of education and make a difference.
