The School of Education is primarily focused on postgraduate provision, both teacher training and taught and research degrees in education but also offers two full-time undergraduate degrees.

The BA Education combines the academic study of educational policies, systems, contexts and practices, with a practical focus on career development in related areas. This course will build a broad theoretical and practical understanding of educational research methods suitable for those aiming enter the field of educational research. It also offers, through optional modules, a strong foundation for those aspiring to teach, for example in primary schools.

The Humanistic Counselling Practice BA course is particularly suitable for students who wish to study to gain a qualification for professional practice and that would enable them to access registered counsellor status.

The course is accredited by the National Counselling Society and provides more than the required number of training hours for individual accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

Many graduates also use the qualification to gain employment in other areas broadly associated with helping and supporting others, for example mentoring, support roles, teaching assistant and in supported tenancies.
