The Institute of Education announces the launch of a BA Education Studies programme offering a strong focus on inclusion and social justice.

This exciting development is part of the Institute’s drive to deliver high-quality degree programmes that appeal to a broad range of audiences, both national and international. The new BA Education Studies will be a distinctive and innovative course for students who want to study education and learning in its broadest sense. The breadth and flexibility of this degree will ensure a wide range of career options upon graduation.

Teresa Wilson, who is leading the programme at the Institute of Education’s beautiful London Road campus said:

“This course can act as a stepping stone to a wide range of careers, working in a number of educational environments that include but aren’t limited to traditional school environments. Some students will be interested in working with adults and may become trainers or work in human resources, whilst others might pursue a career in mentoring, disability support or working as an Education Officer in museums, theatres or charities.

“The module options mean that students can tailor the degree to their own academic and professional interests and develop creative strategies to support all learners. The four week work placement and the opportunity to study abroad will enhance students’ reflective and transferrable skills; assets highly valued by employers and important to students’ learning.”BA Ed Stud image for home page banner

Dr. Cathy Tissot, Head of the Institute of Education said:

“We are delighted to be extending our existing strong educational offering and are excited about delivering a programme that will include such a broad audience. This will be a great opportunity for a wide range of people and we look forward to delivering it.”
