The School of Education welcomes international students from across the world and have previously taught students from many countries including Barbados, China, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Pakistan, South Africa, Kazakhstan and Jamaica.
We provide both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees that international students are eligible to study, including courses in general education that enable students to explore the nature and aims of the subject in a broader context.
Although the Education BA and MA do not offer qualified teacher status (QTS), our graduates go on to have a range of careers in teaching and related education, social and caring professions including:
• Alternative education centres
• Community youth work
• Primary schools
• Special educational needs
• Educational welfare
• Local authorities
• Historic buildings and museums with education units
