Education Studies BA (Hons)

This course opens up careers in education e.g. primary teaching, taking a teacher training course, e.g. PGCE or GTP after graduating, or other careers working with children.

Draw on sociology, psychology, philosophy, law, health and social welfare as you apply theory to practice in work-based settings.

After a broad first year, you can focus on a particular theme, (eg special educational needs, technology and teaching preparation), preparing you to work in a range of professions with children and young people and allowing you to explore your own interests.

Gain vital experience through work placements and volunteering, including a final year work-based unit in an educational setting, and develop research skills through doing a research project in an educational subject of your choice.
