Introduction to Education Studies

Education Studies entails a teacher training qualification, which will familiarise you with the national curriculum and classroom-based teaching. Students studying this subject will also be interested in education for academic reasons, seeking to discover its impact on society. Modules on the course will cover this as well as the history, sociology and psychology of education.

Applying for an Education Studies course?

SI-UK is here to help with your Education Studies application. Get started today and arrange your free consultation at an SI-UK office or via Skype.

Students are encouraged to take a placement which will be credited towards your degree. This enables the student to gain first-hand experience of life in a classroom, and will greatly enhance applications for full-time work following completion of your degree. Many UK courses offer advice and assistance in applying for a classroom placement.

Careers in Education

Education studies graduates can expect to find roles chiefly in teaching, but other careers can include research, publishing and management. Many education studies degrees do not offer Qualified Teacher Status, but will allow progress on to a Postgraduate Certificate in Education programme (PGCE).
