The Education Studies (Hons) programme at Bishop Grosseteste University will provide you with an excellent understanding of education in its widest sense, nationally and globally, and is a great choice if you are interested in a career in teaching or are thinking about working in other education-related areas.
It will provide you with a deep and reflective knowledge and understanding of contemporary issues in education, directly related to everyday practice. You’ll debate education policy, find out more about the drivers of educational change in England today and critically consider different approaches to schools and schooling, both within the UK and globally.
A key feature of Education Studies is a focus on you as a developing practitioner. You will be encouraged to develop a strong personal ideology of education and will be supported in the development of secure employability skills through our work-based placements.
A number of core modules each year incorporate placements in schools or other education-related settings and carefully structured placement tasks will ensure that you gain valuable first-hand practical experience.
Education Studies graduates enjoy very high levels of employability – the course facilitates your personal and profession employability skills superbly through regular work-based placements – and our students are in high demand.
Currently, around 70% of our students complete a teacher training course and will go on to be highly successful Primary or Secondary teachers, but with an Education Studies degree from BGU, your career opportunities are diverse.
