Undergraduate Courses

We offer two undergraduate degrees in the School of Education:

BA Primary Education (with Qualified Teacher status)

The BA Primary Education offers a direct route into teaching, with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) upon successful completion. Academic theory is combined with a programme of school-based placements on this intense course, delivered through our Centre for Teacher Education. Our BA Primary Education programme will prepare you for your career in education, providing the tools and support you need to become an inspiring and outstanding teacher that will make a difference to the lives of students, both now and in the future.

BA Education Studies

Our Education Studies is a broad multidisciplinary degree. On this programme you choose modules that focus upon the philosophical, sociological, psychological, historical, political and cultural aspects of education. We go far beyond any classroom and consider education, people and their function in the world.

Education Studies can be studied as a single subject OR with one of our partner subjects: BA Education Studies with Geography (X1F8)BA Education Studies with Psychology (X1C8) or BA Education Studies with Sociology (XL33), thus, providing links to other distinguished departments within the University.

A single Education degree contains the majority Education modules, with some opportunity for appropriate study within other departments. Joint subjects are comprised of 50% Education modules and 50% study in one of the three subject partner departments. The breadth of our modules allows for the creation of pathways through the programme. This may be linked to one of the four strands of educational expertise within the programme: pragmatic; sociological and philosophical; psychological; and international and intercultural education. We simply ask that you have intellectual curiosity!
