Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Alternative Qualifications

Our ability to learn and teach is part of what makes us human. It allows us to change not only ourselves, but also our organisations and societies. Quite simply, education can change the course of history. On this course, you’ll gain the knowledge, understanding and expertise you need to understand education within schooling and other educational contexts. You’ll study the different approaches and contexts to learning and how we develop as lifelong learners. Outside of the classroom you’ll study the role of education within societies and cultures, and the interplay between education, childhood, adolescence and lifelong learning.
