Do you have an interest in education? Are you keen to study aspects of education without committing to becoming a teacher? See education as a subject in its own right?
Well, we’ve designed our Education Studies programme so you can explore the nature, scope and purpose of education in formal and informal systems. You’ll study it from a national and global point of view, in vocational and non-vocational education and training and in lifelong learning.
