Education BA

The Education BA is an education degree that combines the academic study of educational policies, systems, contexts and practices, with a practical focus on career development in related areas.

This course will explore 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.

Humanistic Counselling Practice BA

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. Many graduates also use the qualification to gain employment in other areas broadly associated wth helping and supporting others eg mentoring, support roles, teaching assistant and supported tenacies.

It is taught by professionals in the field. Lectures and seminars are delivered in small groups, providing regular and consistent tutor/student contact. There are no exams and we offer innovative types of assessment, for example, portfolios and presentations.
