    Why do our school and university systems exist in their current form? How have successive governments helped shape the way in which we teach and train children and adults? This degree addresses questions such as these, as you explore the world of education through the prisms of history, sociology, philosophy and psychology. You will develop your understanding of the UK education system not only in its own right, but also in its European and global contexts, engaging with the thinkers and ideas that are at the forefront of current education policy and practice, tracing their evolution as they shaped the way we teach and learn in the 21st century.
