Subject

Education studies

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

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. The degree covers perspectives from disciplines such as politics, history, sociology, philosophy and psychology.

The placement module provides an excellent opportunity to develop your understanding of educational theories in a practical setting, and will strengthen your CV. You could also have the chance to study abroad for a semester at our Malaysia campus.

Modules

In year one you will begin to study a number of strands that run throughout the degree in subjects such as education and society; education: past, present and future; learning through the 21st century; and contemporary debates in education. In year two you can go on one of a range of assessed placements in wider education settings, for example, museums, galleries, NGOs, social services, and schools (if you are interested in a career in teaching). In year three, you will draw together your learning and undertake a specific research methods module. You will write a dissertation and can take up to 10 credits from outside of the school from languages study, or modules from sociology, politics or psychology.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
