The specialised awards in Education Studies are ideal if you intend to qualify as a primary school teacher. They are known as '3+1' courses: a three year honours degree followed by one year of teacher training (PGCE Primary and Early Years).
Three single honours awards are available:
Education (Primary Teaching Pathway) (UCAS Code: X301)
Early Years Education (Primary Teaching Pathway) (UCAS Code: X311)
International Education (Primary Teaching Pathway) (UCAS Code: X390)
It is also possible to combine Education with another subject in our modular programme to achieve a joint honours degree:
