Course Introduction

Open to international students only, our BA Education, Culture and Society (with International Foundation Year) is suitable for you if your academic qualifications do not yet meet our entrance requirements for an undergraduate degree. This four'year course includes a foundation year (Year Zero), followed by a further three years of undergraduate study. International students who are admitted to this programme will normally be eligible for a four'year CAS and student visa. This will last the duration of the degree. Our English language and academic skills modules supplement your academic subjects. This degree will develop your knowledge of education systems in the UK and beyond. You'll enter into key debates about policy issues with a focus on social justice and equality, and understand education from a multidisciplinary perspective. We offer you the opportunity to take up accredited placements at a range of organisations involving anything from working on literacy with Bengali women or supporting year 3 students with SEN at a primary school. Our teaching is informed by a commitment to social justice and inclusion, which is reflected in our diverse study body. We offer support for your personal and career development through our personal progress programme, supported by staff in the department and the College, through tutorials and workshops which will help you to reflect on your personal, academic and employment goals and support you in developing your communication skills.We encourage discussion, debate and critical reflection, and will help you relate theory to real'life experiences.
