Overview

In Education, you will explore why our school and university systems exist as they are, and how a succession of governments have helped shape and mould the way in which we teach children and train adults. You will come to understand 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.

 In English, you will explore representations of fictional and nonfictional worlds, revealing gripping stories of right and wrong, and asking questions about what society expects of men and women. Combining your passion for language and literature and developing written and oral fluency, independent thinking and self-expression, you will be stimulated by an impressive array of specialist modules examining the form and use of spoken and written English and exploring a variety of literary periods and genres.
