Our top-up degree in education studies is aimed at students interested in developing their current Level 5 qualification, such as a foundation degree, to a Bachelor's degree in education. The course prepares you for a range of careers in education, including work as a teaching assistant, teaching in further education, and roles in education administration and youth work.

Although much of the course is lecture-based, your tutors will encourage debate, discussion and analysis and help you develop your practical skills. By the end of your degree, you should understand the key elements of education studies and the importance of learning and teaching in the context of wider communities and society.

The course is offered by one of the university's partner colleges: Nescot, in Epsom, Surrey.

How you will learn

For new and returning students in September, our focus is on making our university environments safe and accessible to everyone.  We’ve prepared a 'blended model' of teaching which means combining face-to-face sessions on our campuses with online lectures. All face-to-face sessions are in line with distancing rules. If students are ill or shielding, we’ll provide all lectures and course materials online.

Ready for September

Teaching

In a typical week learning takes place through a combination of:

  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • 1-to-1 tutorials

Further details to be confirmed.

Seminars enable you to discuss and develop your understanding of topics covered in lectures in smaller groups. You will also be able to meet your personal tutor. Scheduled learning activities may fall between 9am and 9pm, depending on your elective courses and tutorials.

Class sizes

Independent learning

Outside of timetabled sessions, you'll need to dedicate time to self-study to prepare for coursework, presentations and exams. Our library and online resources with support your further reading and research.

Overall workload

Your overall workload consists of scheduled learning activities which will include online lectures, online and on campus discussions, workshops and practical sessions.

If you are studying full time, you should expect the workload to be similar to a full-time job (approx. 40 hours per week. For part-time students, this will reduce in proportion with the number of courses you are studying.

Each module you study earns you credits toward your degree. Every credit represents around 10 study hours. So, if you receive 50 hours of scheduled learning activities for a 30-credit module, you should expect to commit 250 hours to independent study to complete it successfully.

Assessment

On this course, students are assessed by take-home exams, coursework and practice assessments on campus where required.

Each course has formal assessments which count towards your grade. Some courses may also include 'practice' assessments, which help you monitor progress and do not count towards your final grade.
