Students involved in the study of education are exposed to a range of practices, theories and ideas that underpin how the work of education is conducted here in the UK and further afield. The Education Studies programmes are underpinned by a discussion of issues related to learning theory; individual development; education and society; equality and opportunity; access and inclusion; educational alternatives; and organisational change. A number of our students also have interests that relate to other areas of allied educational work, such as youth, community and charity work or training and development. In response to this, the programme also draws on aspects of critical theory to explore issues of social justice, globalisation, sustainability and education and the environment Education Studies is offered as a BA Single Honours . Whilst it does not award Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), this course is intended for students who have an interest in education as a career in all its forms. You may then go on to PGCE study in primary or secondary teaching or into an educational role in a related occupation or field.
