The BSc Hons in Professional Education (Primary) with specialism in Primary Science (STEM) is a 4-year programme of study that is designed for students who wish to pursue a career in STEM teaching at the primary school level.
In collaboration with the University of Stirling, the programme combines core elements of Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics, as well as practical labs, alongside participation in a full Initial Teacher Education programme.
Students on this programme follow the well-established Professional Education path at Stirling and attend Chemistry/Physics lectures and laboratories, as well as Maths classes, at Heriot-Watt's Edinburgh campus. This is an ideal option for students with aspirations of becoming a Primary School Teacher. The Primary Education degree will suit those who wish to study primary education alongside a specialism in three STEM subjects.
