This is a modular undergraduate honours degree programme offering 360 credits over three years. Students will take half of their credits in Education, and the other half in Psychology. Students will take eight compulsory modules in year one. In year two students will undertake four compulsory modules and select two optional education modules. In the final year, students will take three compulsory modules, and select five optional modules (two from psychology, three from education).
Students benefit from a varied and well supported programme of study including lectures, seminars, academic tutorials, practical research classes, debates, collaborative group work, field visits to schools and other educational settings, and online, digital learning. Independent study and self-directed learning is an integral component of each module.
Staff offer opportunities for one-to-one support on academic matters and students are assigned a personal tutor from each academic department to provide personal, academic, and professional support.
Assessment: Students will be assessed through a combination of unseen examinations (multiple choice, short- and long-questions) and coursework, including: essays, presentations (poster and oral), written reports, blogs, personalised learning records, case formulations, research proposals, video blogs, and research reports. Students are also required to complete an independent research project in the final year linking Education and Psychology. These multiple forms of assessment will be used to meet the diverse learning styles and previous educational experiences of students.
Please note that students choosing to study towards the Cambridge English Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) will also have to undertake an examination as part of the qualification.
