We are really looking forward to you joining BA (Hons) Education Studies in September. Covid-19 has been challenging for us all however, the Education Studies team have been working hard to design a programme of study which is busy and exciting and we are confident it will be both intellectually challenging and enjoyable too. The course has been carefully designed using well-researched pedagogical principles and strategies, blending online and face-to-face learning opportunities.
Our focus has been to maintain the strong sense of community and care that develops within our cohorts. The online activities, face-to-face opportunities and innovative assessments tasks offer time for you to work collaboratively with your peers and the teaching team, towards developing your knowledge and understanding of the discipline of Education.
In small group seminars, both on and offline, you will be encouraged and supported to develop your skills and dispositions of thinking critically, being curious and demonstrating your creativity which we consider key attributes for students training as an Educationalist. Our experience has shown that blended learning opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, self-care and workload prioritisation, with support from the Education academic team and the wider University services, which are available to you.
In the coming months, before commencing your studies, please contact your Programme Leaders if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
