The Education Studies BSc uses research methods from different disciplines to investigate learning through the life course across a wide range of different contexts, including Early Years, schools and adult and community education. The degree will provide students with many different perspectives on research methods and an understanding of how to apply them to questions about education. This could lead to careers anywhere where education matters, such as routes into primary teaching, research, educational publishing and a range of jobs in the charity and community sectors. Students will be able to exercise sound judgement and innovate when faced with complex, uncertain and novel problems in education. Lectures, workshops, seminars, discussions, guided independent study and tutorials offer an evidence-based, flexible and highly relevant basis for professional development. Seminars and workshop activities encourage you to collaborate with others, while individual and group presentations help you develop confidence in conveying your arguments and ideas. Our new second year optional unit, ‘Education in Practice’, gives you the opportunity to connect your academic learning with the practice of education by conducting a placement with a school, community organisation, charity, museum or other relevant organisation.
