Education sits in an ever-changing social, political and cultural context. This dynamic programme allows you to explore the different settings where learning takes place and the processes that underpin it.

You’ll explore education in different contexts, as well as the impact of government policy on educational practice. You’ll learn how schools and classrooms work and how core curriculum subjects are learned and taught.

Placements in your second and third years of study will allow you to gain first-hand practical experience of classrooms or other education settings, while diverse optional modules will allow you to focus on the topics that excite you the most – from science, mathematics and language education to behaviour management.

You’ll study among active researchers at the forefront of their fields. It’s a great opportunity to gain in-depth knowledge and a wide range of skills for careers within and beyond the education sector.

When an applicant is taking the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) this can be considered alongside A Levels and may attract an alternative offer in addition to the standard offer. If you are taking A Levels, this would be BBB at A Level and grade A in the EPQ.
