BA (Hons) Education Studies - X35B

Are you fascinated by the diverse ways in which human beings learn?

Our innovative and interdisciplinary programme considers education as a life-long and life-wide experience, encompassing educational philosophy, theory, policy and practice.

Critically analysing Education in a fast-changing globalised world, the BA (Hons) Education Studies will introduce you to creative and forward-thinking approaches to teaching and learning. It will also allow you to develop your understanding of contemporary educational policy at both global and local levels, whilst exploring the background to the history and development of education.

And with optional modules to choose across a range of different related disciplines, from philosophy to sociology, economics to business, you’ll gain a broad set of skills to help you progress to the best career for you.

"Among all projects, student tutoring in SEN schools captured my attention. I wanted to volunteer because it was an entirely new concept that I had never experienced. I hoped that through volunteering, I could gain some experience and understanding of working with pupils with special needs."
