Education and learning in all its forms have the power to enable individuals, communities, institutions and society to change and transform.
The BA Education Studies is an innovative programme, which offers opportunities to tailor your degree towards a specific career interest should you wish. Alongside the central programme there are three optional pathways, Youth Work and Community Development (YWCD), Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion (SENDI) with the additional opportunity to create a bespoke programme from the available modules.
This critical study of educational processes, systems and approaches is situated within cultural, societal and political contexts. You will be engaged with learning spaces and places in and beyond formal educational settings, in an approach that will challenge your assumptions of what education is and where it takes place. Through engagement with real-world experiences and by examining contemporary issues, you will be equipped with the skills required to be agents of change in a complex and ever-evolving educational landscape.
How you'll study
Throughout your degree, you’re expected to study for 1,200 hours per year. That’s based on 200 hours per 20 credit module. And it includes scheduled hours, time spent on placement and independent study. How this time is divided among each of these varies each year and depends on the course and modules you study.
