Find out more about the TEF.

This BA (Hons) Education Studies programme offers a breadth of learning experiences that provide you with the multi-professional development essential to pursue a career in a range of educational settings.

The course is delivered by practitioners and academics in the Education team who have specialist knowledge and experience of working in a range of educational settings such as schools, post-16 educational settings, and further and higher education.

The course will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the education system in the UK and overseas and enable you to relate educational and learning theory to teaching practice. The degree will operate around six themes, extended through a succession of related modules.

Our goal is to encourage you to look at the theoretical, philosophical and practical approaches to what education is, what it does and the challenges are faced by learners, teachers and institutions in the 21st Century. We aim to stimulate discussion in relation to education and explore the potential for diversity and innovation alongside established practices and ideas.

The course operates from a wide span of interest and considers education, teaching and learning across all age groups and is not specific to any one sector. Including the state sponsored systems, informal learning and organisational approaches allows you to develop a wide spectrum of critical analysis on different forms of education in practice, and theory.

Please note: the course is not designed to provide Qualified Teachers Status but can be used as a platform for further post graduate study in to the Primary and Post Compulsory sectors.
