Why study Education at Birmingham City University

Children are placed at the heart of the School of Education and Social Work. Our courses are centred on their wellbeing, offering guidance and instilling knowledge in our future leaders. The skills you gain will prepare you for a number of careers working with children, young people and their families.

Why we chose Education blog Primary

If you can see yourself as someone who can be an agent for change, a degree in Education might be the path for you. We spoke with Jess Wythe and Amy Parkin, two Education Studies students interested in two different career paths, to gain some insight on why they chose to study Education at BCU.

Amy Parkin, Education Studies student – An Education path towards a career in Teaching

Diverse, challenging and rewarding are three words used by Amy Parkin to describe BA (Hons) Education Studies. Amy recently graduated from the course with a 1st class degree and is now considering moving on to study PGCE Primary Education. If, like Amy, you are interested in teaching but still want to explore other areas of education, Education Studies might be the ideal course for you. The course offers a wide range of career prospects including areas of social care, youth work and even prison education. Hear first-hand from Amy about the support and options available to you with a degree in Education Studies.
