How do people learn? What gets in the way of learning? Where might people learn best? Can education make a difference to human rights? These are just some of the big questions that our contemporary, issues-based Education Studies programme will examine. This course has been carefully designed to give you the ‘bigger’ picture of education in a global society. Mathematics is vital in modern society, underpinning our understanding of the sciences, engineering, technology, finance and many other aspects of our everyday lives. Good mathematicians are in demand, from both the education sector and within a vast array of industries. We aim to provide you with the tools you need to make a real difference in the world and to those around you.
