Our BA Education combines the academic study of educational policies, systems, contexts and practices, with a practical focus on career development.

This course explores current educational ideas and practices and will encourage you to challenge the assumptions that underpin them.

When you graduate, you will be well-equipped to understand and influence a range of educational processes at local, national and international levels.

My favourite aspect of the BA Education is the fact that this is an interdisciplinary course; it covers education from a wide variety of perspectives such as sociology, psychology, history or even philosophy.
