Course summary

BA Primary Education (QTS) programme is specifically designed to enable students to develop a strong identity as a primary teacher. This course offers the option to study a range of modules within the disciplines of art, English, mathematics and music. Additionally, you will have the option to undertake modules from contemporary issues in education, thus providing you with a broad and deep understanding of education in the twenty-first century.

This course will enable you to get a job as a primary school teacher following graduation. There is a high demand for primary school teachers and many of our graduates are offered jobs before they have finished the course. Furthermore, we are ranked 12th in the UK for Education in the Guardian University Guide 2020.


As a graduate of this course you will be able to work as a teacher or teaching assistant in a primary school or move into nursery education. We will provide you with careers advice throughout the course and can also give support when preparing for interviews.

Our excellent links with local schools ensure that our employment rates are consistently high. Overall, 95%-100% of our BA Primary Education with QTS graduates were in work or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE survey, 2016-17).
