Why Choose University of Cumbria

The Inclusion with SEND specialism is a unique programme that will challenge you to consider and debate key issues in education as well as enabling you to become a first class teacher.

Placements sit at the heart of our course, so all the theory you learn in seminars will be backed up by work-based experience. Not only will this boost your confidence, but it’ll bolster your CV.

  • Your personal tutor will support and guide you through your studies
  • All tutors have a wealth of experience in teaching and have good links with local schools
  • Study in small class groups, so we get to know you well
  • Placement opportunities in mainstream primary schools, early years settings, and even international placements, to give you work-based experience to boost you CV
  • We have strong partnerships with schools and educational providers, which has the potential to help you secure placements and enhance your job prospects
  • In your final year, you'll be able to complete 60 credits, equivalent to a Post Graduate Certificate, at Master’s level, putting you in the perfect position to complete a Master’s degree in the early years of your teaching career.

You’ll be living in a vibrant student city by the spectacular North West coastline, within an hour of the Lake District National Park and the big cities of Manchester and Liverpool. So, whether you want lively or leisurely, you’re within reach of both.

For a course that’ll springboard your teaching career helping the learning needs of pupils, this course is for you.

Course study options

This course is also available without the specialism in SEND.
