About Education (Youth and Community) at University of Huddersfield

You'll extend your knowledge and understanding of the ideology and theory underpinning informal education with young people. You'll have the opportunity to build your skills, specifically focusing on learning strategies, effective personal development, research and evaluation. You'll be able to choose from a range of options to increase your performance in your work and/or professional practice and increase your confidence in your work and in working with others. The course provides a platform for research and evaluation and helps you apply high ethical standards in your practice and research.

You'll be taught by an outstanding team of teachers; in fact we are ranked in the top ten for Education in the Guardian University Guide (2017) for the seventh consecutive year.

You'll also have access to our extensive professional and academic network which feeds directly into course design and delivery and to excellent facilities and specialist equipment.

A postgraduate qualification is a great way to stand out from your colleagues and position yourself for a promotion or pursue a career change.  In fact, here at Huddersfield, 94.8% of our postgraduates find employment or go onto further study within six months of graduating.  9 in 10 of them go onto work in professional or managerial roles.
