Study at the Institute of Education and benefit from a supportive environment and our outstanding reputation with employers.
We are ranked 7th in the UK for Education (The Guardian University Guide 2021).
Our undergraduate courses recently achieved 89 % for overall student satisfaction in the 2020 National Student Survey (NSS).
We teach a variety of undergraduate courses, those with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) as an outcome and those for people who are interested in education more broadly.
Undergraduate Primary Education (QTS)
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 Education courses
If you want to work in an education and learning related role, but do not necessarily want to gain Qualified Teacher Status (for example, you may be interested in working in educational administration or policy or as a Teaching Assistant) we offer education-based undergraduate degrees.
