Sustainability and social justice are central to the course and you’ll examine global issues such as climate change, inequality, migration, changing societies and disability to further explore the role of education. Psychology modules permeate the programme helping your understanding of individuals, groups and society to enable you to make a positive impact and a qualitative difference to people’s lives.

The course has a wide variety of modules and has built-in flexibility so that you can select modules from other programmes such as History, English or Sociology providing opportunity to develop a minor specialism. Placement modules are available at each level, with an optional placement year, to enable you to explore and develop your particular career path and gain vital experience whilst putting theory into practice whether that be in, for example, schools, early years settings, museums, youth clubs or colleges.

The team ethos is friendly and supportive but hard working. We pride ourselves on the close working relationships we have with students and the success rate they have through their degree and also in terms of progression rates towards post graduate study (eg PGCE, MSc Psychology or MA Education) and/or into education-related employment.

Education Studies student Louise Norman talks about life on the course.
