"Education as a course has provided me with many perspectives regarding education. The theoretical context of education regarding its history, developments and future challenges is incredibly inspiring for students. The course is tailored within a very current context which for me is a very important aspect of the course. The content of the course has been both academically stimulating but also fascinating on a more personal level."
"The team of tutors provide an incredible amount of support. The political context of education has been of particular interest to me - and has guided my dissertation topic - an area I wish to continue into masters study."

"This course is enables you to take a step back from how education manifests itself in our current system and to critically evaluate the reasons behind policies and practices across the world. With reflection at the heart of the course, we are able to graduate with a sound knowledge of what educational practices work and where we can improve.
