Education Studies is about understanding how people develop and learn throughout their lives, and involves the study of educational processes, systems and approaches including the psychological, social, cultural, political and historical contexts. By studying this course, you'll be encouraged to think about the different aspects of education, where and how education happens, including primary education, secondary education, lifelong learning, and higher education.


This course focuses on animal biology, such as vertebrate and invertebrate biology, molecular biology, genetics and pgysiology. You'll also cover topics, such as wildlife conservation, ecology and animal behaviour, to give you a broad knowledge of zoology.

You will taught with students studying BSc (Hons) Zoology, but the modules you'll study will depend on how you decide to combine the joint honours courses you choose.
