Study at the Institute of Education and benefit from our world-leading expertise, supportive environment and outstanding reputation with employers.
We are one of the country's top providers of educational training: we are ranked 8th in the UK for Education (The Guardian University League Table 2019) and have been consistently in the top 10 for over a decade.
Our BA Education and BA Primary Education courses recently achieved 96% for overall student satisfaction in Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in the 2016 National Student Survey (NSS).
We teach a variety of undergraduate courses, those with QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) as an outcome and those without for people who are interested in education but do not want to follow a traditional teaching route.
Undergraduate courses with QTS as an outcome
Would you like to teach within a primary school? The children are aged between 5-11 years old and are studying key stages 1 and 2. The teaching content is broad and covers the whole range of national curriculum subjects. In some programmes, you can specialise in a particular area, for example maths or special educational needs.
Undergraduate courses without QTS as an outcome
If you want to work in education and learning but do not want to teach - you may be interested in working in educational administration or policy - we offer two education-based undergraduate degrees where QTS is not an outcome.
