Exploring the modes and methods of education from early years to degree level, our Education degrees trace the evolution of teaching and learning and place you at the forefront of current education policy and practice. You can study Education as a Single Honours degree or combine the study of Education with English, History, Religion or Sociology.

A number of Professional Education degrees are also available which provide ideal preparation for a career in the Children’s Workforce. You can gain an insight into the key factors that impact upon learning, immerse yourself in child development and psychology, or study the fundamental principles of working and teaching in early years (birth to aged seven) or middle years (aged 5-11) settings.
