Welcome to the School of Education

We've been training teachers for over 100 years and offer a wide-ranging provision of undergraduate and postgraduate Education courses aimed at both aspiring and practising teachers, as well as those who wish to work in other areas of the education sector. Find out more about the different areas of study within the School of Education to see which courses could be suitable for you.

Some key strengths of our teaching and education courses are strong communication and positive relationships between the University and its partner schools, and the commitment of trainers in partnership schools to the all-round development of our trainees. Our comprehensive degrees will give you the skills needed to make a real difference in educating the next generation, as well as thrive on a personal level with a rewarding career.

Our location

The School of Education is based in Wearside View, one of our recently renovated buildings at the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter's. Wearside View features a number of spacious classrooms for teaching and learning, as well as a newly refurbished social space with its own balcony.

The Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter's is positioned right next to Sunderland's scenic riverside, and is just a short distance from both the city centre and beaches. The campus benefits from a variety of brilliant facilities, including its own library, IT resources, and several eating and drinking options.

Why study for a teaching or education degree?

Being a teacher is a challenging but incredibly rewarding career where you’ll play a significant part in developing children’s learning and becoming somebody they look up to and, in many cases, remember for the rest of their lives. There’s always demand for qualified teachers, so unlike a lot of other degrees, there will likely be sufficient job prospects available to you when you graduate.

Funding for trainee teachers is also better than it’s ever been before, and you may be eligible for a scholarship or tax-free bursary to help you with your teacher training at university. Read our funding article to find out more.

As well as all of this, working in the education sector offers excellent career progression, the chance to feel part of a warm and friendly community, and the opportunity to really make a difference.
