About BSc Education Studies

On the BSc Education Studies degree you will explore how learning happens across the life course at all ages, from very young children to older adults. You will learn about education in a range of settings, from schools and universities to online communities, social movements, workplaces and care homes. You will develop expertise in UK education and will study education from global, international and comparative perspectives.

The course currently includes an optional placement unit, Education in Practice, where you can apply your learning and gain valuable workplace experience through a placement in a school, charitable organisation, business, museum, community group or research setting.

This course is great preparation for careers anywhere that education matters, including routes into primary teaching, work in the public or private sector, and with charitable organisations.
