Education Studies - University of Winchester

- Education Studies achieved 100% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2017 National Student Survey - Excellent preparation if you want to become a teacher, or keep your options open for other careers in educational services - Voluntary work in your second year counts towards academic credit - Learn from passionate and dedicated staff in a community of knowledge - 4th for overall student satisfaction in England for Education Studies, and 3rd out of the modern (post-’92) universities in England (National Student Survey 2017) - Our campus is friendly and compact with a community feel, offering first-class, sustainable facilities for learning and teaching. Educators make a lasting impact on people’s lives. Whether you want to become a teacher or work in educational charities, publishing, local government, or the service and heritage industries, Education Studies leads to challenging and rewarding careers. Our BA degree goes far beyond teaching and learning: you explore a range of contexts from the classroom through to how education defines the world around us and is used as a lever for social and political change. You will learn things about the workings of society and education which will surprise you. The three-year programme examines education and policy in historical, sociological, cultural, political and philosophical contexts. You gain a deep understanding of education’s impact on gender, citizenship, childhood, family, technology and power. The course is both a rigorous academic degree and excellent preparation for those who wish to take a PGCE and become a teacher, or to pursue MA routes, such as the MA Philosophy of Education. While the degree is theory-based, you can select from optional volunteering modules in your second year that count towards academic credit. In Year 1, the focus is on coming to an in-depth understanding of key concepts and issues of the education process, and introductions to the well-known thinkers of educational theory. Your own experiences will be a key part of this learning effort. Core modules include Educators and Society, Introducing Childhood, Inclusive Education and more. In Year 2, core modules focus on social, ethical and political thought in education. With a wide range of optional modules, you can pursue your personal and professional interests: such as physical education, education and religion, technology and early childhood education. In Year 3, you write a dissertation or complete an independent study project on a topic of your choice. In addition, a wide range of optional modules include Holocaust education, film and politics. By the end of the programme, you graduate as a well-rounded, critical thinker in educational theory. Throughout all levels, you are guaranteed to learn from passionate and committed staff who help you produce intellectually satisfying essays and presentations and encourage stimulating group discussions. Our staff challenge and support you in equal measure and the course consistently rates highly in the National Student Survey, and the UK engagement survey for undergraduates. What’s more, we care about your progress and wellbeing. Education is fundamentally about the development of others and our graduates are employed in professions which involve care and service. Many go on to work in the classroom, but others take up educational roles within public services, such as social work or education management in central and local government, publishing, business, service industries, personnel, libraries, museums, and charities. The programme tutors form a dedicated and enthusiastic team who look forward to meeting you and talking about your ambitions.
