Services for current students



The School of Education is primarily focused on postgraduate provision, both teacher training and taught and research degrees in education. However, there are a small number of students studying both full-time and part-time for undergraduate degrees.

The BA Education and MArts Education are education degrees that combine the academic study of educational policies, systems, contexts and practices, with a practical focus on career development in related areas. These courses will build a broad theoretical and practical understanding of educational research methods suitable for those aiming enter the field of educational research. They also offer, through optional modules, a strong foundation for those aspiring to teach, for example in primary schools.

The BA Humanistic Counselling Practice is particularly suitable for mature students and offers a flexible approach to learning.

The nature of the degree and the student cohort means that many graduates are not seeking full-time work, but are practising their skills alongside part-time work or volunteering or may no longer be in employment.

These degrees offer considerable personal and professional development and a proportion of graduates every year continue to postgraduate study.
