Visit the official programme website for more information


The study of education provides an insight into how children and young people learn and the ways in which this is shaped and delivered. This degree looks at learning and teaching through four key areas: philosophy, sociology, history, and psychology.

The (Hons) Education programme at University of Lincoln considers the different ways in which education is implemented and understood throughout the UK and globally. The aim of the degree is to support our students to understand and question current and historical education systems, and to consider how these systems align with policy, practice, and social expectations.


This course aims to incorporate research-based opportunities; and as a result, students can gain the knowledge and skills required to study aspects of education of specific interest. Students are encouraged throughout the degree to undertake small-scale research projects in an area of education such as learning or teaching approaches, comparisons of global education systems, studies of curricula, or special educational needs. The course has been designed to provide students with a strong base for postgraduate study and beyond.

The four pillars of knowledge: psychology, history, sociology, and philosophy can support a broad understanding of education, and this in conjunction with the study of local and global issues, aims to enable students to gain depth and breadth in their knowledge.

Students may have the opportunity to undertake self-funded study trips abroad, such as to Ireland and Finland, to consider education systems globally. Students on optional trips are responsible for their accommodation, travel, and living expenses.
