BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS (School-based) course preparation

To help you feel prepared for your BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS (School-based) studies, we’ve gathered together a range of course related activities including suggested reading, useful websites and some great things to do right now.

You’ll be given lots of information about which textbooks to read and introduced to the University Library, as well as the many ebooks we have for you to access, when you begin your studies in September.

In the meantime, you might like to begin your reading before starting your degree. We don’t recommend rushing out to buy texts before you arrive. But if you can, do look to pick some up second hand, borrow from a library or access online. Read on for more information.
