Faculty Of Education


Welcome to the Faculty of Education! On this website you can read about activities going on in the Faculty.

The Faculty of Education is committed to providing a student experience of the highest standard. We take seriously our responsibility to prepare students for the world of work. The aim of all our programmes is to develop graduates who are able to demonstrate an evidence-informed, outcomes-focused, inquiry-based approach to teaching. We expect a lot from our students; hard work, dedication and motivation.

We invite you to join us in exploring education in all its facets.  How do people learn?  What makes a school effective?  How do different societies structure their education systems?  How can we make education more inclusive?  How can we develop our own teaching practice? We want you to not just read, talk and learn about ideas but to ask questions about them challenge them occasionally and develop your analytical skills.

We are keen to give all our students opportunity to develop an international dimension to their studies, which will enhance their opportunities for future growth. On successful completion of our programme, students will have the subject knowledge, pedagogical understanding and appropriate dispositions to teach effectively in order to address current disparities in educational achievement.

I am pleased to welcome you as a student, staff, or visitor and invite you to share in our educational journey of discovery, innovation, and scholarship.
