  • Course description
    Course content:
        You will take education studies plus two further subjects chosen from the following list: psychology, sociology, historical studies, literature and linguistics and original writing. In addition there is a compulsory core of study skills, IT, arithmetic and tutorial.

A short placement in a school is also an essential part of the course.

Academic and tutorial support is given throughout the course, and you will receive help and advice with your university applications through the UCAS system.
