Course summary

**We're ranked 3rd in the UK for our undergraduate Education programmes, including BA (Hons) Primary Education with QTS (Guardian League Tables 2020)**You will study very broad subjects in your foundation year, which is designed to prepare you for a range of courses, not just one particular BA degree.So although you apply to study a BA in a specific course – in this case BA Primary Education with QTS – the foundation year sets you up for a number of other possible degrees starting the following year. It may be that you don’t end up doing a degree in precisely the same subject as your foundation year.This flexibility is one of the great things about the foundation year category Society, Childhood and Education; it allows you to find out more about your interests and talents before focusing on a three year degree. The foundation year also helps us at BCU to make sure we help to match you to the degree that fits you best. You will be assessed for progression on to your second year, which would be the first year of your BA-level degree.Do you have a passion for inspiring and educating young learners, and want the best possible career opportunities after graduating?
