"It's been a real privilege to work in some fascinating countries and contexts, meet many interesting people and have some truly memorable experiences. I've worked within schools, special schools, language schools, FE colleges and universities, and I've been involved working in the UK and a number of other countries such as Spain, Egypt and Oman. I love to see students develop their passion and make a difference to other people's lives through their work. The Education Studies course really can change people's lives. It can open students' eyes to different career options and set them off on their chosen pathway."

What are Course Maps and Module Descriptors?

Course Maps

A course map contains a list of the individual study units, called modules, that you study to complete your course. Some modules are compulsory, but you can sometimes choose modules outside your core area of study which interest you.

Module Descriptors

A module is a self contained, individual unit of study. The Module Descriptor provides various details about the module including who the module tutor is, what you will be studying, how you will be assessed and what you will have learned once you have completed the module.
