Course summary

How do children learn and develop? How do you unlock and maximise the potential of every child, inspiring, encouraging and nurturing learning to provide them with the foundations to build a better future? The BEd (Primary) is a four-year degree programme designed to support your development as an educational professional and reflective practitioner. Education Studies and Curriculum Studies provide the foundation for what you will be studying, providing an overview of education theory, policy and practice. In years one and two you will also choose a specialist area from the Northern Ireland curriculum. The leadership of your area of specialism will be studied in depth in year 3 and in year 4, plus you will conduct research and complete a dissertation on a topic that you are passionate about. The course is intellectually challenging, internationally relevant and informed by current educational research and scholarship.

HOW WILL I BE ASSESSED?

A variety of assessment methods are used, including: critically reflective essays, individual and group projects and presentations, e-portfolios, formal examinations, assessment on placement and final dissertation.

CAREERS
