Here are our top 10 reasons to choose the School of Education and Social Work at Birmingham City University.
The latest DLHE survey (2016/17) showed that 98.9 per cent of students from the School of Education and Social Work were in work or completing further study six months after graduation.
We’re investing £41 million in an extension to our existing £30 million campus in Edgbaston to provide state-of-the-art learning facilities for our education courses.
As an undergraduate student you’ll get hands on experience on your course through placements in appropriate settings, ensuring you’re ready for employment when you graduate.
Many of our courses provide qualification for a profession, including our teacher training programmes which result in QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) and Social Work, which allows you to register with the HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council).
Our student employment agency, OpportUNIty – Student Jobs on Campus, allows you to apply for paid roles with us at the University, and gain valuable experience for your CV and future employment.
You’ll have opportunities to travel abroad through the Erasmus+ scheme, which will allow you to study or work in another EU country and receive a grant that will cover part of the costs during your stay.
We run a range of postgraduate and short courses, and can be flexible to allow you to study single modules at this level, so you can be sure we’ll look after your professional development even once you’re in employment.
Study with us and you’ll be located at the heart of the dynamic city of Birmingham – with all the employment possibilities that a big, multicultural city brings. Plus the social life’s not bad either!
To welcome new undergraduate students in 2018 we’re giving away at least £150 of free credit to ‘spend’ on books and other learning material. Plus, you don’t have to pay it back!
Our staff are experienced professionals and maintain links to ensure you get the most up-to-date learning during your course. Many are research active, contributing to scholarship in education, childhood and youth, and social work.
