Education Studies

University of Strathclyde


This programme allows you to tailor your studies from a range of elective classes and is ideal for those who want a broader range of study.

Your Advisor of Studies will help guide you in your choices. It has a number of pathways, including: Inclusive Education; Philosophy with Children (the only course of its kind in the UK); Supporting Teacher Learning; Supporting Bi-lingual Learners; Health and Wellbeing; Educational Leadership.

By completing this degree you'll gain a critical understanding of education while being able to tailor your choice of elective subjects to suit your preferred area of specialism.

Rather than leading to a teaching qualification, it enables you to develop skills to study at Masters level and develop a sophisticated understanding of the concept of policy relating to education. It will allow you to extend your interest and understanding of learning and engage in a range of other, education-related areas.
