Undergraduate Courses

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

The BA Education 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.

You'll be able to challenge educational practices and debate issues such as equality in education, learning in the digital age, and the ways in which cognition and development affect the way people learn.

If you’re interested in the factors that influence the way we teach and learn, and want to keep your career options open, the BA Education is perfect for you.
