Our BA Honours Education Studies degree goes beyond just teaching and learning, preparing you for a range of careers in the education sector and beyond. Our degree is taught by expert tutors with extensive experience working in educational settings and explores how education defines the world around us.
Throughout the course, you will be encouraged to develop employability skills, built into the modules, including reflection, teamwork skills and professional development. Alongside the study of educational theory and policy, the course draws from a range of disciplines, including history, psychology, philosophy, sociology, and law; all of which contribute to the education field. The theoretical knowledge our students gain is the perfect preparation for a career in policy-making, leadership, administration or management in education, and is also an excellent foundation for our Master's courses. You will benefit from the guidance of passionate academics who bring a wealth of professional experience within education and related sectors to their teaching.
Mode of Study Options: It is expected that by September 2021 we will have In-person classes and these could be supported by an online element. It is too early to commit to a 100% Online at present as it will depend on the Health & Safety situation and KHDA permissions. We can say at present that if the Health & Safety situation warrants it there could be a 100% online along with in-person classes.
