Education Studies is about how people develop and learn, the nature of knowledge, and critical ways of knowing. As a student, you’ll analyse educational processes and their cultural, social, political and historical contexts, and gain perspectives on economic relationships, globalisation, international education, and equality and equity in education. Education Studies also deals with beliefs, values and principles in education and the way that they change over time. This course prepares you for a variety of professional career routes in education. You will also benefit from practice-informed expertise and recent research in the Centre for Policy, Pedagogy and Practice (PPP), Centre for Research in Scientific and Technological Learning and Education (CRiSTLE) and Centre for Research into Equity, Inclusion and Community (CREIC). More about the Professional Placement Year. A Professional Placement Year (PPY), traditionally known as a sandwich year, is where a student undertakes a period of work with an external organisation for between 9-13 months. The placement occurs between the students' second and third years of undergraduate study. Students can engage in up to 3 placements to make up the total time and are required to source the placement(s) themselves with support from the Careers and Employability Team.
