We are committed to transforming lives through education. Our department has strong links to hundreds of organisations, including nursery, primary and secondary schools, giving you plenty of opportunities to gain practical experience and tackle professional challenges head on. As a result, our graduates go on to successful careers and have a huge impact on the lives of thousands of learners.

Our innovative courses reflect the social, political and technological changes taking place in the field of education, and you’ll benefit from our expertise which spans curriculum development, educational assessment, early childhood education, STEM education, and higher education teaching.

The BEd course gave me a wide range of ideas to use within my teaching. When planning my lessons, I can think back to all of the creative approaches we were taught to use, and I feel confident applying these.

Our University has great relationships with employers of our students and graduates across the globe, and our School has a long-standing reputation for producing teachers and others working in education who are highly sought after by employers. Many students return to us later in their careers to gain a Master's or a doctorate.
